The impact of the new Parliamentary boundaries

There is some interesting discussion of this over at UK Polling Report.

Altogether this means that the notional House of Commons on the new boundaries will look like this:

Conservative - 212 (plus 14)
Labour - 345 (minus 11)
Liberal Democrat - 64 (plus 2)
Others - 29 (minus 1)
Labour Majority - 40

The two forecast gains for the Lib Dems are both in Yorkshire: Sheffield Central and the bizarrely drawn and named York Outer seat.
