I think those within politics are treating DC's comments as a series of bombshells, and pretending they didn't think he was a lying toad last year. But it's juxtaposed by the Tory MP's who have done a 180 on the chap.

I'm inclined to think there's a middle ground where some of what he's said hints at truth, covered in a layer of Boris bad, Sunak good.
I think it definitely warrants an inquest now and not further down the line when as our new messiah DC said "paperwork can be lost and meetings erased"

Interesting(ish) news about the boundary’s redrawing and impact on south Swindon - cutting off Wroughton and associated boundary villages. Would imagine that will make the seat much more competitive moving forward

Given Bobby buckles lives in wroughton, and is fairly active in local affairs for a high profile MP, I would bet he will move across to the new country bumpkin seat which, based on nothing more than lazy stereotypes, I would assume to be a much safer Tory bet.

A seat covering Wroughton to Salisbury gives a new meaning to the phrase ‘local-MP’ mind

Got a link? At the moment, West and Middle Wichel are in Wroughton Parish and East Wichel is in South Swindon Parish

Proposed maps are here

https://boundarycommissionforengland.independent.gov.uk/2023-review/south-west/

I’m not sure of the definitions, but looks like all of the ‘main bit’ of wichelstowe that is currently built fall under south Swindon, apart from the houses near Waitrose which fall under east Wiltshire

Chiseldon is also south Swindon. Wroughton, to the west, is east Wiltshire. Simple

Thing is the reporting is shite, if they are 'apparently' from Johnson the BBC hasn't done due diligence on the story and should not be posting it so quick after release without checking, if they are not 'apparently' then the BBC should say so!

I know its Cummings getting his blows in first, but this bit made me smile as it rather confirmed the impression I have always had of Johnson's abilities..

Remember Boris told us all (and forced other cabinet members to) that Dominic was a thoroughly decent & trustworthy chap who is truthful to the core.

I know by-elections are odd and non predictive but Cons lose Chesham and Amersham in Buckinghamshire to the Lib Dems on a 25 point swing, a majority of 16k becoming an 8k Lib Dem majority.

For all their success in the North, that's going to worry a lot of home counties MPs.

it may be a protest vote, or an outlier, but that's one hell of a swing in a safe seat
