Knock plans on the head

editorial image

I was shocked earlier this week to read of the planned nationwide boundary changes that will also impact on South Shields – if they are implemented.

It comes as no surprise that clearly little to no local consultation has been carried out, to this point, by the Boundary Commission.

If so, they would be aware that it is completely unacceptable for the possibility of South Shields heartlands Chichester and Laygate to be considered as part of the Jarrow constituency.

I hope that the adequate consultations take place and these ludicrous plans are knocked on the head ASAP.
