Initial Proposed Boundary Review

On 12 Sep 2011 at 4:18pm Hot News wrote:
Due to the small electorates of the neighbouring Lewes and Brighton, Kemptown constituencies, we propose a Lewes and Brighton East constituency that contains
eight wards from the existing Brighton, Kemptown constituency, four of which are City of Brighton and Hove wards, and four of which are District of Lewes wards. In addition, our proposed constituency includes a further eight wards of the District of Lewes, from the existing Lewes constituency. It broadly follows the path of the River Ouse along the eastern boundary and both parts of the constituency are accessed by the A27 road.

the only reason for the boudary reorganisations is to turn the whole of england tory blue. but lets face it, lewes is already done for with the liberal traitor. I can't imagine this will have any other effect but to dilute any left leaning voters amongst the tory shires.

It is a strange set of proposals, and breaks its own rules on going across too many different council boundaries and cutting long established local ties - for instance, lumping in Newhaven with Uckfield. Bizarre.

The Boundary re organisation is a response to years of boundary commission delays caused by New Labour. Basically their inner city welfare and public housing strongholds have depopulated leading to a situation whereby votes of one kind are worth far more than votes of another
There is no possible justification for this as most people accept and it was clearly flagged in the manifesto. Essentially its only a speeded up version of ordinary adjustment. I doubt more than one in a hundred people could tell you the boundary of the current constituency anyway.

We should take our lead from the Greeks and start The Indignant Party.

Either that or riot.

In small towns and villages, there are a number of examples in East Sussex, forget mainstream political party's. Set up well operated independent residents associations and vote for them. They only concerns for them should be their own town/village. Leave the heavy political arguing to the large towns, cities and county councils. Mainstream politics have little place in small communities.
We get our opportunity to have our say in who runs the country every 5 years, in between we should run our own affairs.
