I don't think there are any constituencies in the wrong place, but I am reminded of general election night when the TV screen said "Conservative hold South Holland" and one of my colleagues asked where "South Holland" was.
Labour governments are always voted in by empty minds, and voted out by empty pockets
I wonder what people would have made of the former constituency of Liverpool Scotland.
When I first came across this in writing it was as the "Liverpool division of Scotland" (and referring to TP O'Neill's parliamentary career of course) and, unfamiliar with the dated expression, I was genuinely unsure whether this meant there was a neighborhood called Scotland in Liverpool or another town called Liverpool in Scotland, eventually settling on the first as more probable.

The old Tamworth county division of Warwickshire used to confuzzle me. Also in that area I was surprised when I discovered that the 1955-74 version of Birmingham Aston was largely a suburban seat (covering much of what is now Erdington)
