It occurred to me that I should find out what parliamentary constituency I'm in now, and it turns out it's Mid-Derbyshire. Which is a brand new thing dreamed up for the last elections. And a funny kind of name, too, since it's in the south-east corner of Derbyshire and not in the middle at all. If I was the boundaries commission, I would have called it "That Bit That's Down Near Derby But Isn't Actually Derby Itself". Also, I would have abolished the whole parliamentary process and made myself some sort of ultimate king of everything (because I'm sure that such is within the powers of the boundaries commission), but first I would have changed the name.
