Soon you’re going to have to vote for a new MP, so it seems fitting to have a quick look at how your last one voted on your behalf. For example, my MP Anne Campbell voted:
- Very strongly for introducing foundation hospitals.
- Moderately for introducing student top-up fees.
- Quite strongly for Labour’s anti-terrorism laws.
- A mixture of for and against the Iraq war.
- Moderately for introducing ID cards.
- Very strongly for the fox hunting ban.
- Very strongly for equal gay rights.
To have a look at your own, stick your postcode in to TheyWorkForYou.com. This is all done by taking a monstrous slice of Public Whip and barbarically simplifying it into TheyWorkForYou. Pass it on.
One thought on “How your MP voted on important issues”
Here’s a democratic accountability website dedicated to researching your MP and providing space to name & shame them.
Follow this link: http://www.powertothepeople.org.uk/content/gov/gov_how_to.htm
to find your MP, their voting record, parliamentary questions, edms, members interests, contact details etc. Once you have the facts of your representation, publish them, let other constituents know what their MP is upto in their name. With the General Election looming it could have a real impact.
