Why can't the Boundary Commission ever get it right in this area?
Don't forget the current boundaries were drawn on the 2000 electorate data. They are 14 years out of date already!
IIRC the 1992 election was fought on seats drawn using the 1976 electorates and 2005 on the 1991 figures. So it isn't unusual.
I agree, but what the Boundary Commission don't seem to be able to get a handle on is the continued population growth in the Huntingdon and north Cambridgeshire area. It's been going on since the 1960s so you'd have thought they could design seats with slightly less than average electorates to begin with.
