Change to Telford constituency

News of the planned boundary changes for Westminster constituencies for the West Midlands euroregion have been leaked.

If they are implemented, we will see big changes in Telford with Bridgnorth and Much Wenlock (and presumably Broseley to fill in the gap) becoming part of a Bridgnorth and South Telford constituency.

This will change the demographics of the constituency considerably by adding traditionally Conservative-voting rural parts of the Ludlow and Wrekin constituencies to the traditionally Labour-voting housing estates in the Telford constituency.
