Boundary review: it looks like good news for Skewen
The latest revision of the Boundary Commission for Wales' proposals returns Skewen to the Neath constituency where it belongs.
I am sure that many local interests contributed to the change of thinking by the BCW, but I would put in a word of praise for our local Liberal Democrat party, and especially for the coordinated work of the national party, led by WLD's behind-the-scenes mapping genius. The outcome (assuming it survives a further 8-week period for objections) is also a tribute to the persistent campaigning of former county borough mayor and Skewen resident Keith Davies.
