Over the weekend there’s been discussion amongst Liberal Democrat colleagues about our MPs voting records, as recorded on the excellent website They Work for You. My colleage Richard Baum reports more on this.
According to the report on our local Bury South MP Ivan Lewis, our representative’s voting record includes the following “highlights” (or is it lowlights?):
Voted strongly against a transparent Parliament.
Voted strongly for introducing ID cards.
Voted very strongly for introducing foundation hospitals.
Voted strongly for introducing student top-up fees.
Voted very strongly for Labour’s anti-terrorism laws.
Voted very strongly for the Iraq war.
Voted very strongly against an investigation into the Iraq war.
Voted very strongly for replacing Trident.
Voted moderately for equal gay rights.
(I’ve included the latter, as really it should have been “strongly for”)
