Britain woke up on 9th June 2017 to a different political landscape.
The announcement of the General Election took many in the UK by surprise, and the campaign was hard-fought on all sides, but ended with no clear winners or losers as the result of a hung parliament.
Nevertheless, Maps International has logged each result and redesigned our UK Parliamentary Constituency maps to reflect the current political order.
At first glance, it may not appear so different to its 2015 predecessor, but with many marginal seats changing hands, particularly in the north of England and into Scotland, it is worth taking a closer look at the details. Labour made the most gains, a total of 36, including an unexpected victory in Kensington and Chelsea, and taking Sheffield Hallam from its long-sitting occupant, Nick Clegg. However, the Conservatives saw success in Scotland, gaining multiple seats from the Scottish National Party. Both Jeremy Corbyn and Theresa May retained their own seats.
A parliamentary boundary outline map is ideal as a quick reference guide to display in the home or the office, clearly showing all parliamentary constituencies and their boundaries, with additional details included to better illustrate urban areas, such as London, Birmingham, and Greater Manchester. It can also be ideal for teaching children and classes about how general elections work, and how the government is formed.
