Profiles of the Forty Welsh constituencies5 September 2014
One thing I had been thinking would be very useful to have prior to the next general election was a comprehensive set of constituency profiles: write-ups on all forty seats, with background information on each seat and a discussion of its recent political history.
In truth, I had been slightly dreading the prospect of doing such a thing myself, although I could see the need for it. However, Gareth Hughes has now come to our collective rescue, by completing a full set of profiles. They are available at his blog here. I have also inserted a permanent link to them in the Useful Links section of the Blog.
I haven’t yet been able to read all forty of them, but those I have sampled look very good. They should be an invaluable resource to anyone needing a quick refresher on the lay-of-the-land in a particular Welsh seat prior to next May. Mwynhewch!
