MID-BEDS MP Nadine Dorries’ Mid Bedfordshire consitutency has been wiped from the political map in the Boundary Commission’s revised proposals released today (Tuesday).

Her constituency has been split between the newly-created pair of Mid Bedfordshire & Harpenden and North Bedfordshire.

Mid Bedfordshire & Harpenden encompasses most of Peter Lilley’s existing Hitchin & Harpenden constituency – but including Arlesey, Shefford, Stotfold, Langford and Henlow – while North Bedfordshire encorporates much of Alistair Burt’s current North East Bedfordshire patch, including Sandy and Biggleswade.

It is proposed that the votes of Hitchin residents will be split between Mid Beds & Harpenden (Hitchwood, Offa and Hoo) and North Hertfordshire (Walsworth, Bearton, Highbury, Priory and Oughton wards).

North Hertfordshire would include much of Oliver Heald’s North East Hertfordshire constituency, which includes Baldock and Letchworth.

    This boundary change is well timed given the current MP simply neglects her paid duties and constituents in favour of working for a television programme!

    This must be very frustrating for the rebellious Ms Dorries. The arrogant posh boys have turned out to be vindictive.
