Is the plan a big bang rather than a dribble?
We all know that a key part of the coalition’s electoral reform package is to reduce the commons from the current 650 seats to 600 all apart from one or two of the same size.
What I understand tonight is that next September there’s going to be a big announcement when the boundaries of all the new seats will be revealed all at once.
Until now the process has been to announce new boundaries a few seats at a time.
My guess is that the “big bang” approach is being designed to minimise opposition.
