    The Boundary Commission for England has published its final recommendations for future electoral arrangements for City of Wolverhampton Council.

    They are proposing that Wolverhampton should still have 60 councillors and those councillors should represent 20 three-councillor wards across the city.

    They also propose that the boundaries of 14 wards should change but 6 will stay the same. The 6 are: Blakenhall, Graiseley. Merry Hill, Penn, Tettenhall Regis and Tettenhall Wightwick.

    Politicians are supposed to represent the people. But we have a government that the majority of the country didn't vote for. 56.4% of voters in 2019 backed parties other than the Conservatives.

    Our decaying electoral system shuts out too many from our democracy. This isn't about political point-scoring. It's about making sure everyone's voice is heard. We're fighting for a better way - will you add your voice to ours?

This article gives you the results.

    In 2021 we achieved something we've not achieved since 1993: winning two Parliamentary by-elections in the same year off the Conservatives. We start this new year with a larger Parliamentary Party than any of us would have dared dream of a year ago. (A winning run that has continued with the first council by-election of this year too - congratulations to now councillor Andrew Dunkin who won a seat from Labour from third place.)

    Tom Brake is a former Liberal Democrat MP who is now director of Unlock Democracy. He is very concerned about aspects of the Government's elections bill that would require voters to produce photo ID at polling stations before being allowed to vote.

    Mr Brake has, with representatives from Open Britain and Fair Vote UK, written to all the Conservative MPs who voted against the current Covid restrictions and especially the so called Covid passports.
