I read on the front page of the Daily Telegraph today the headline, "Tories denied majority by unfair system."
The Conservatives are being denied a House of Commons majority under an 'unfair' constituency system.
The review of boundaries which was proposed under the coalition was blocked by the Lib Dems. Worse they foisted an undertaking to reduce the number of MPs from 650 to 600. This confused the two quite separate issues and ensured the 50 MPs who would lose their seats would strenuously oppose this reduction. Turkeys don't vote for Xmas. This is the sort of devious politics the LibDems love and too hell with our country and this is what is now happening.
When Cameron gained an absolute majority in 2015 I wrote to him asking him to implement the equalisation of boundaries asap. I offered to set up an unimpeachable mathematical model that I had tested and that could not be interfered with by politicians. Well that would never do and I got a non-reply back and Cameron pursued his pointless failed renegotiation and eventually lost the referendum he was sure he would win.
If the Tories had implemented my proposals they would now be home and dry with a safe majority but they did not, and now they don't have a majority to implement it. The DUP would be the big losers so they will never support May who is hamstrung and must lose, probably to Corbyn.
Another huge strategic error by the Tories that will bring Corbyn to power.
I am grateful to the letter from one Charles Pugh of SW10 published in the Telegraph today under the headline,
"A cabal of MPs who left Britain stuck with unfair electoral boundaries"
Mr Pugh points out that the deal was in a Referendum bill that the LIb Dems would get a referendum on us changing to an AV voting system which they lost big time and in return there would be boundary changes whichh the Lib Dems duly welched on just like the EU and in the great tradition of Lib Dem duplicity. The Lib Dems also wanted an elected second chamber which if it had gone through would have given them a de facto veto on anything a government wanted to do that the Lib Dems did not like.
This act of betrayal was only made possible by slopy drafting of the referendum bill. Cameron did not do detail but the Lib Dems do nothing else.
Anyone who votes LibDem should know they are voting for some very duplicitous people in the Lib Dem parliamentary party in the Commons. Words cannot describe the duplicity of Lib Dem Lords who nevertheless are given endless airtime on the BBC, Brussels Broadcasting Corporation.
That Cameron continued to appoint LibDems to the Lords after this calls into question his true motivations.
