I'm the Hen Ferchetan. This is my take on the world through the eyes of Wales. While mostly about Welsh politics (that most famous of dour topics!) I try to scatter some humour around, but I doubt anyone but me will find it funny! Have a read, and if it bores you then feel free to never come back!

I know that the Glasgow East b-election is a total different kettle of fish to the 2010 elections here in Wales, that people vote differently in by-elections and that Wales has two (sometimes three in the Lib Dems) parties challenging Labour in different seats, but as an interesting exercise, here's your answer:

If there was a swing the sizd of glasgow East from labour to one single party in each constituency (i.e. whoever was second in 2005) then:

Labour would hold:

Cynon Valley

They would lose the other 24 seats.

It will never happen, no matter how optimistic/pessimistic you are!

thanks for that used to be a labour party activist but not a member of any party these days, im just curious as to who would stay and go, but im with you that it very unlikey that 24 would go in one night.
