Where will Anne go?
There is something most bizarre about the internal workings of the party when an MP of some years standing and a member of Cameron's frontbench finds herself without a parliamentary berth at the next election. Anne McIntosh is currently the Member for the Vale of York but her seat disappears thanks to the all powerful and totally unaccountable Boundary Commission. The successor seat is Selby, which recently chose local businessman Nigel Adams instead - so what of Anne's chances of being returned at the next general election and how can the party justify hanging an elected member out to dry like this? I hope she finds a winnable seat very soon.
