Do Turkeys vote for Christmas?: yes, when it comes to Liberal Democrat MPs and the boundary review for Westminster constituencies: Nick Clegg’s party will lose a fifth of all its MPs

By Lewis Baston

Abstract

One of the few areas where the Liberal Democrats have been able to gain policy concessions from the Conservatives has been in the area of constitutional reform, with electoral reform and changes to constituency sizes being shoehorned into one bill. Lewis Baston of Democratic Audit models the effects of a smaller House of Commons and finds that while we cannot be completely certain of the outcome at this stage, it could well be disastrous for the Liberal Democrats
