Which MP’s voted against bombing Iraq?


Only 42 MP’s voted against Britain’s new bombing campaign in Iraq yesterday; here is a handy list that can easily be referred back to come election time. It should be noted that immediately following the vote, Iain McKenzie (Labour) was sacked as an aide to the Shadow Defense Secretary, and Mark Reckless (Conservative) has since defected to UKIP, announcing the news this afternoon at the party’s conference. Additionally, if your MP is not on this list, he may not have shown up at all to vote (as mine did).
