North East Fife Largely Unaffected by Boundary Review

Things stay the same.

In the Boundary Commission for Scotland’s 2018 review initial proposals suggest that the seat which includes St Andrews, North East Fife, shall be largely unchanged and shall even be one of the few seats to retain its name.

The number of MPs at Westminster are set to be reduced from 650 to 600 with Scotland being reduced from 59 to 53. This is supposed to make up for an existing democratic deficit whereby constituency size can vary by tens of thousands of voters and thus allowing voters in some constituencies disproportionately more influence in electing an MP than voters in other constituencies. In Scotland the new ‘Constituencies must have between 71,031 and 78,507 electors, unless they are larger than 12,000 km2 when they can have fewer electors.’

The current seat of North East Fife is drawn along the Fife Council ward lines which includes: St Andrews, Cupar, Howe of Fife and Tay Coast, Tay Bridgehead, East Neuk and Landward and Leven, Kennoway and Largo. The proposed seat includes all of these areas but now also includes Buckhaven and Methil from the Buckhaven, Methil and Wemyss Villages ward while excluding East Wemyss, West Wemyss and Coaltown of Wemyss.

This new area which North East Fife would include comes from the existing Glenrothes constituency which is represented by former SNP Fife Council leader Peter Grant. He used to represent the Glenrothes West and Kinglassie ward and stood down after being elected as an MP at the last election. The Glenrothes constituency is set to become Glenrothes and Kirkcaldy if proposals are approved and will include the Wemyss Villages.

The reduction in the number of MPs opens the prospect for incumbent MPs facing reselection battles with each other along the new boundaries. North East Fife incumbent Stephen Gethins and Peter Grant are the two MPs whose constituencies currently include part of the proposed North East Fife seat and could make a claim to represent the seat but Gethins’ seat covers the vast majority of the proposed change and so he would be unlikely to face a serious selection challenge unlike many of his SNP colleagues.

The Boundary Commission for Scotland has launched a consultation period on its proposals welcoming all comments until 11 January 2017.

  3.–do-not-use.php is a scam
    Hi all, got scammed by this website. Saw that there were a couple of post informing about this but just wanted to give more details
    Paid for the three day offer and with the confirmation of the subscription, got two mails from and asking me to confirm my email. Didn’t pay attention and deleted them.
    I immediately canceled the subscription in without any issue and on the last day it changed to a standard membership so since it was bs site, cancelled the account as well.
    So I was happy and watching a movie when I got an sms from my card provider telling me that I got a 71.78 euros charge from fry Never heard of them, so I called my card provider and cancelled my card and will request the return of the money as well.
    Then I realized that maybe these two websites also by some miracle signed me up to a paid subscription… so I logged in… had to recover the passwords because they were not the one I used in… and surprise, did signed me up for a paid subscription without me being aware (pretty sure that somewhere during the signing process in flirt there was something checked and didn’t pay attention.). So I had to cancel subscription and account in these two other sites.
    So, sorry for the long post but in summary…. do not use at all!!!
    Yes, FLIRT.COM it is a scamming website. It sign you on multiple websites like . It bombard you with emails that you receive messages, and you need to pay to see them. After you pay you see the messages. All messages are from BOTS. No real person.
    It’s subscribing to automatic renewal and it’s hard to cancel renewal. They push you to a complicated scheme. I’m not even sure the renewal canceling works. After
