Who will loose seats in North East

Recommended Posts

I wonder who  the MPs in the North East would be if the commissions proposals are carried out .

 

Proposals from the Boundary commissions for England and Wales may see  a number of our MPs deselected 

Jeremy Corbyn and  George Osborne and Boris Johnson are among those whose seats the proposal would be abolished.

 

North-East: 25, down four

Yorkshire and the Humber: 50, down four

Eastern: 57, down one

East Midlands: 44, down two

London: 68, down five

North West: 68, down seven

South East: 83, down one overall (two seats are lost but the Isle of Wight goes up from a single seat to two)

South West: 53, down two

West Midlands: 53, down six

I'd wondered this about the NE too.

Maybe Cameron triggered a by-election now so's Boris or Davis couldn't slide into his seat at the 2020 GE?  Being forced to campaign for either with a happy face would even be beyond his powers of deception!

Apparently  each seat will contain an average of 75,000 voters.

The constituencies earmarked for extinction will be absorbed by their neighbours.

If they chop the number of elected MPs  I hope they don't forget to give the cronies in the unelected house of lords a good pruning, or am I expecting to much

The same principal needs to be applied to Scotland double quick; it would reduce the number of SNP MPs by about 2/3 and clip the mad fish woman's wings!

From what I've just heard on the news it seems about time we took a hatchet to the HoL too - 100 of their lordships now seems too many!  In fact the HoL would be a good place to start PR in: one lud for every percent of the national vote I think.

So, the real question is will our Mr Lavery get a real job, and if so who would be idiotic enough to employ him?  :)

the tragedy with Berwick is that it lost a fine man in Alan Beith, irrespective of his political affiliation he did a damn good job for many years. the 3 candidates that stood to replace him were a motley crew and none worth the lead in my pencil to put a cross for. I shudder to think that the new boundaries may well actually give Mr Lavery (another one who employs his family at public expense) a possibly very good chance to spend another 5 yrs sponging off the taxpayer!! the present incumbent does nowt but turns up anywhere there is a camera and has failed to do anything about any of the 'imperative issues that must be addressed' as listed in the election campaign - and that includes not replying to e--mail questions about that -- ho hum.... ( A1 ? dual ?? that would be the A1 duelling that was agreed 30 yrs ago at Mousen/Purdey Lodge and nowt has been done - or the dual bit at causey park mooted 15 yrs ago and side-lined - but its ok as the road that goes from nowhere to nowhere will always lead over the rainbow to the pot of gold at the new county hall at Ashington)

Latest plans for the election boundary changes have been released and the national press are naturally focusing on Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn. If the changes take place it will be interesting to see if Ian Lavery fights to retain the Ashington / Berwick seat or pops across the Wansbeck to take over a safe seat from Ronnie Campbell who plans to step down before the next election.

I think your predictions are spot on Bedlingtonian

Last election for Berwick 2017 the Tory won 22,145 votes (52 per cent) this time round, compared to 16,603 (41.4 per cent) in 2015, with Labour's Scott Dickinson (10.364)

Could you imagine Ashington as a Tory Town :o they would be chucking themselves of the pigeon Crees :lol:

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
