Subject: How Ed Miliband's cuts policy is dividing Labour's heartlands correction
The geography in this piece about cuts to Library services in Liverpool is a bit muddled
At first I thought "hold on -- Woolton's solidly LibDem"
Then I realised that what you meant was a safe Labour was the parliamentary constituency of Garston and Halewood run by Maria Eagle, which also includes:
Allerton and Hunts Cross (in Liverpool);
Belle Vale (in Liverpool);
Cressington (in Liverpool);
Halewood North (in Knowsley);
Halewood South (in Knowsley);
Halewood West (in Knowsley);
Speke-Garston (in Liverpool);
But neither Maria Eagle or Garston and Halewood are mentioned which has created a lack of clarity, which also isn't helped by mentioning Woolton in the opening paragraph and then spending the rest of its duration talking about *Walton" which does lend its name to a parliamentary constituency.

Thanks Stuart -- the earlier reference (para 2) to "a safe Labour constituency" should have specified Garston and Halewood. I'll amend this text and add our usual explanatory footnote shortly.
