Boundary changes - sense at last!

Whilst I know that the whole issue of parliamentary boundary reorganisation is in the air with doubt as to whether the promised reduction of mps will be implemented I was delighted to note that in the revised proposals issued by the Boundary Commission today the ridiculous suggestion to transfer the wards of Leigh and West Leigh to Castle Point has been dropped. Like many others I voiced my opposition to a recommendation which would have left the community of Leigh split between 2 constituencies, Southend Council with 3 mps, and a sure recipe for confusion. The new proposal leaves Southend West mostly unchanged but for the addition of Victoria.
