Disappearing seats

Anthony Wells (a Hull BPLS graduate) works for YouGov and is a leading analyst of UK voting.  He runs the UK Polling website.  He has been busy at work on the Boundary Commission recommendations.  He has drawn up a list of seats that, on his analysis, are disappearing under the recommendations.  You can see his list here.

    I have that site on my favourites and had thought of mentioning it here – some good analysis in other posts of the changes as well.

    Help, anyone, please!
    HoL ‘ financial support’ stats for Oct-Dec 2010 shows a maximum of 49 days in any one claim between 5 October – 22 December 2010. It can’t be a coincidence that dozens claimed for no more than 49 days, but the number of eligible days exceeds that figure.

    Additionally, I recognise that the daily attendance records may contain half-days. Would it be reasonable to divide the number of days by the daily allowance claimed, in an attempt to work out the ‘full-time’ equivalents?

    Many thanks.
