The Labour, Plaid Cymru and SNP politicians are going to squeal like stuffed pigs when Constituencies are made a uniform size!  I will certainly vote in the forthcoming AV+ Referendum for MPs to represent equal numbers of people per constituency. It is suggested that the current number of 40 Welsh MPs will be reduced to 29. How the change will impact Scotland I do not know but it is also highly likely that the number of Scottish UK Parliament  MPs will reduce.

This entirely sensible as it is quite obscene that Scotland and Wales have too great a pro rata weight of representation in the UK Parliament when both Wales and Scotland have their own National Assemblies and devolved powers. It is also obscene that Welsh and Scottish MPs can vote in the UK Parliament on English-only matters yet English MPS have no say on how the Welsh and Scottish Assemblies decide issues solely devolved to Welsh or Scottish control.

Update: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-11208580 Northern Ireland could lose up to 3 Westminster Seats if constituency boundary changes are approved in the Referendum. Northern Ireland MPs are divided over the Bill to approve the Referendum on AV+ Voting and Constituency changes … the self-seeking bastards are divided because the ones who will lose their seats are the ones against the Bill and the Referendum.
