This isn’t going to be popular with TMay’s supply & confidence partners
Well done to Martin Baxter for getting his boundaries projection out so fast. His figures showing what would happen if they’d been in force on June 8th have the Tories just into majority territory but with the DUP suffering in Northern Ireland.
It is for this reason perhaps more than any why this plan is unlikely to happen.
But the law reducing the size of the Commons from 650 to 600 is still in place and would require primary legislation to change it. Whether the Tories will do that is hard to say.
There are other big legislative fish that need to be fried at Westminster before the boundaries need to be dealt with.
