Labour MP for North West Durham Pat Glass, Diane Abbott Labour MP for Tooting, and Labour MP for Hackney North and Stoke Newington Sadiq Khan have all taken to Twitter after the Conservatives lost a vote to change the Westminster constituency boundaries:
Govt heavily defeated on boundaries vote. Govts need to win elections fairly not by gerryboundaries boundaries
In the end the Tories lost the boundaries vote by a solid 42 majority. Difficult to see how then can win on their own in 2015 now.
Next election to be fought on current boundaries – Tories should try to win elections fair and square and not by moving the goalposts
