Does anyone know what these changes will be as regards Wirral.
Until I know how it will affect me and where I live, I find it
disgusting how it is being used as a political bargaining chip and the fact that it is about trying to manipulate voting to the benefit of one party or another without any input from ourselves

Oops-looks like Bidston will be joined up with Seacombe and the rest of Wallasey.

Yes - madness!

Huge swathes of Birkenhead, including the North End, Bidston & the Ford Estate, will be in Wallasey constituency.

On the positive side though, at least the Woodchurch comes back into Birkenhead, rather than being in the clutches of the vile Esther McVey, currently Wirral West, who will no doubt be earmarked for the safe (Tory) seat of Hoylake & Neston.

Esther can then stop patronising Woodchurch residents by pretending she remotely cares about them.


*edit*

..... & the Mersey Banks constituency is just bonkers - have you seen what is proposed there?

It was bad enough that they knocked down the worst part of the North end and palmed half of them off on seacombe now they want to take the whole of BIRKENHEAD North and bidston and add it to wallasey! Ridiculous.

Boundary changes have taken place a number of times that I can remember, over a period of decades. Usually Labour governments come up with the plan of action.

This latest farce was initiated a number of years back and at that point, some little jerk in Westminster, saw it a good idea to combine Wallasey and Kirkdale(Liverpol). They should get a degree in geography before they start making rash plans. Obviously whoever was responsible for the thought, must have imagined the River Mersey to be a trickling little brook, with stepping stones!

If they change the boundaries, and voting constituencies, I assume there will be fewer councillors needed, which can only be a good thing.

The Parliamentary Constituency of Wallasey used to be a safe Conservative Seat. Now, it is a safe Labour seat. I am quite sure this happened entirely by accident.

The Parliamentary Constituency of Wirral West is marginal. Under the proposed changes, Hoylake & Neston will inevitably be a safe Conservative seat. I am quite sure this proposal happened entirely by accident.
