Interested in all parts of Wales, but particularly Torfaen, Monmouthshire, and Flintshire. Interested in Leave voters’ thinking in the light of the past 3 – 4 years.

I think Blaenau Gwent is one to watch especially if the Brexit Party pour resources into Labour Leave seats. The seat has a strong tradition of a protest vote, that’s why Plaid Cymru have come close in the past there. Also the Brexit Party has an interesting candidate in former “Revival Leader” Richard Taylor. Anyone who can attract thousands of people to hear a Sermon on a wet and windy evening in Twenty First Century Cwmbran is one to watch. It would be interesting to research and analyse his trajectory from Christ to Farage – some sort of road to… Read more »

How do you get to that conclusion? As no evidence of that, seems like it reflects where the closest race will be

Not in my opinion. I’ve included Gower where I live because it swung to the Conservatives election before last before going back to Labour last time. So it’s a potential for change again. That’s the only reason. If it was safe Labour I wouldn’t have included it.

I’ve included VOG because i’m hoping the incumbent who shall be nameless gets kicked out and two others which are very close.

That implies that people are only interested in their own constituency and the three closest to it. Unlikely, as you know, really.

Predictably, and yet interestingly, the constituencies that have attracted the least interest are the Labour sinecures in the Valleys. Are they really that predictable (hypothetical question)?

It’s spelt ‘Hywel’, and I’m from Conwy – not Gwynedd. Ynys Mon and Ceredigion will be interesting as will the Vale of Glamorgan, – will they be able to stomach the ultimate lap-dog Cairns after his most recent abhorrent act? Most probably and sadly, – yes.

Looks like you got very narrow suspicions, just like your mind. I come from Sir Benfro, bit out of your suspected area.
It is fantastic to have a media outlet that truly represents Cymru and puts Cymraeg matters first. Personally I’ve had a guts full of the english media masquerading a British news.

Cover all parts of Wales, particularly in target seats for Plaid Cymru and the seats within the EU Remain pact.
Want to see Plaid Cymru retain ALL their existing seats and win in Llanelli, Ynys Mon, Aberconwy, Rhondda.

Realistically:
The Liberal democrats to win in their targets: Brecon & Radnor, Monmouth, Montgomery and Cardiff Central.
Labour now has a good chance of retaining Vale of Glamorgan (it is a seat they hold in the Senedd – see the back of that nameless man) .
