Guardian's Patrick Wintour proved to know nothing in boundary review predictions

With breathless excitement I awaited the outcome of the boundary review. Who would be right- Patrick Wintour of the Guardian with his confident prediction of Lib Dems Norman Baker and Mike Hancock scrapping it out for a joint Lewes/Portsmouth seat, or commonsense which says that two place 50 miles apart are unlikely to be joined together given the large conurbation sitting between them.

I won't beat about the bush. Commonsense won and Mr Wintour lost.

Mind you, in both cases there has been an interesting outcome to the review. Portsmouth changes from being north and south to east and west and Lewes is now combined with East Brighton.
