There's a bill going through at the moment which will reduce the number of MPs to 600 and alter the size of distrcits to be more even.
The first bit I'm leaving to one side for the moment - it's the resizing bit that seems to be causing the most fuss.
Labour are decrying it as gerrymandering. And I can see that it _could_ be used that way. But as no statement has been made about what the new districts will be, I can't see how on earth they can come to the conclusion that they will be slanted against them.
I don't understand how there can be an argument against voting districts being of (roughly) equal size, in the interests of fairness. Can anyone enlighten me?
