Robert Buckland has been keeping busy since leaving the government late last year.

A lot on his plate, given there’s an election looming in the next 18 months or so…

Buckland is forecast by UK Polling Report to get a walloping at the next election if the polls stay where they are currently, seeing the return of Heidi Alexander as a Labour MP.

Either that or he’s thinking of spending a lot less time in his constituency after the election than he’s letting on.
