Red Pepper: Chartism for the 21st Century: Why trade unions are backing an overhaul of Westminster

And academics at the Centre for Economic Performance at LSE looked at the relationship between marginal seats and hospital closures between 1997 and 2005. They found “Marginality…has a significant positive impact on the number of hospitals that exist” (Bloom et. al., 2010). In other words, hospitals in safe seats are more likely to close down than those in ‘swing’ seats.
