I've enlarged this area so you can see it clearer. This Labour stronghold used to belong to Alun Michael. He quit being an MP in 2012 and decided to become a Police Commissioner instead. Now this area is run by Steven Doughty. So he can proudly say that he is the MP for the worst area of child poverty in the whole of Wales. But the data was compiled last year, so Alun Michael is well within his rights to claim all the credit for this achievement. He was MP for this poverty stricken area for 25 years after all.
