DIRTY TRICKS: Boundary Changes Will Make It HARDER for Boris to be re-elected

BORIS Johnson will find it harder to be elected at the next election thanks to boundary changes being pushed through Parliament by the Government.

The plans will AXE Jeremy Corbyn’s Islington North seat and Boris Johnson would face a significant challenge to his 5,034 majorities in Uxbridge and Ruislip South with his seat losing Tory-leaning Yiewsley and gaining Labour-leaning Northolt.

Latest plans for seat boundaries are to be published and will cut the number of MPs by 50, giving Tories an ‘advantage’ and forcing scores of MPs into a battle for political survival.

Sam Hartley, Secretary to the Commission said: “The recommendations we’ve published today mark the end of a thorough and consultative process to build the new map of constituencies.”

“We’ve travelled the country, taken account of over 35,000 public comments, and heard many impassioned views about how best to reflect local communities in our recommendations while ensuring that constituencies are all much more equally represented.

“We’re confident that the map we propose today is the best match of the legal rules Parliament has set us.

“It’s now up to Parliament to decide whether these boundaries will be used at the next general election.”
