“Today proposed boundary changes were published. That these plans, to reduce Scotland’s ability to hold Westminster to account, are being made at the same time as the unelected and unaccountable House of Lords stands at a whopping 800 members and is being bolstered with even more Tory donors and supporters, is an utter disgrace.
The proposals that affect people living here show an incredible lack of care and understanding of the geography of the Highlands. My SNP colleagues and I, will be fighting these outrageous proposals that would mean our constituency would be the size of Cyprus. It is ridiculous to even suggest that this would be manageable. This is just another example of a Tory Government that doesn’t serve the interests of Scotland and certainly does not understand the needs of people living in the Highlands.”
