Stourbridge was a Conservative seat from 1974 until 1997, when it was won by Labour. The current MP is Labour's Lynda Waltho, who emerged with a 407-vote majority in 2005, despite a 4.3% swing from Labour to the Conservatives.
Boundary changes mean that Amblecote, Quarry Bank and Dudley Wood, and Cradley and Foxcote all fall completely within this seat after gaining parts from Halesowen and Rowley Regis and Dudley South respectively. The acquisition of Quarry Bank and Dudley Wood is the most significant change here, adding a large north-eastern extension to the constituency. Lying on the edge of rural Worcestershire, Stourbridge has increasingly become a commuter town for those working in nearby West Midlands towns and cities. It retains much of its small-town appeal.

2010 Candidates:
Chris Bramall - Liberal Democrat
Will Duckworth - Green Party
Margot James - Conservative
Lynda Waltho - Labour
Madeline Westrop - UK Independence Party

2005 Results
Labour: 42.2%
Conservative: 39.2%
Liberal Democrat: 15.9%
Others: 2.7%

As you can see, Conservative was very close before and is likely to take over this time. Before 1997 we were Conservative too.

Bolsover has been Labour since its creation in 1950, and has only ever had two MPs, both miners. Harold Neal had already been MP for the predecessor seat Clay Cross since a by-election in 1944. He achieved some notoriety as an apologist for Franco's Spain, but represented the area for 25 years before handing over to Dennis Skinner in 1970.
Skinner had already developed a high-profile reputation as president of the Derbyshire NUM and member of Clay Cross Urban District Council. His majority has never fallen below five figures. At the 2005 election his majority was 18,437 votes, down from a higher of more than 27,000 in 1997.
At the election, boundary changes have been slight, with the gain of Holmwood and Heath ward from North East Derbyshire. To find out what might have happened had this boundary change been in force at the last election, see a notional - or estimated - result below.
The seat stretches 20 miles north to south on either side of the M1 motorway, which has been the engine of considerable regeneration.
The constituency used to have one of the biggest concentrations of coal mines in the country. That and the associated heavy industry, hydraulics and engineering dominated the local economy, but the last pit closed in 1994.
Diversification has placed great emphasis on the retail and service sectors. The biggest single employer is the McArthurGlen designer outlet at South Normanton.

Will post a selection of clips from our "wonderful" MP tomorrow, he says he hates all Torrie's and will defend labour to the death to stop the Torrie's getting in. He has been suspended on occasion's. He always interrupts the queen's speech with little comments such as "any Tory moles in the palace". He got suspended for a day during a debate after accusing George Osbourn of snorting coke lol
