There is an inquiry into the Parliamentary Boundaries going on in The Council House today.
I have put forward our case that Yardley, Sheldon and Acocks Green should stay together (as has been the case for about 1300 years).
Whereas as far as Labour were concerned Bordesley Ward had a natural affinity with Washwood Heath in 2004 now Labour are calling for the following seats:
Washwood Heath, Hodge Hill, Shard End, Sheldon
South Yardley, Stechford and Yardley North, Sparkbrook, Bordesley Green
Acocks Green, Hall Green, Brandwood, Billesley
As usual Labour show no real consistency save self-interest.
Another example of Labour inconsistency is on the 2nd runway at BIA where Solhull Labour oppose it and Birmingham Labour support it.
