The Shameless

These Labour MPs did not backed the motion, which is based on EDM 1088 which they backed before: Colin Challen, Ronnie Campbell, Michael Clapham, Jim Cousins, Ann Cryer, Jim Devine, Neil Gerrard, Ian Gibson, Jim McGovern, Austin Mitchell, Linda Riordan, Jon Trickett.

Some will have been blackmailed (Guido suspects Linda Riordan falls into that category), some will have been bribed, some will not have wanted to vote with the SNP/LibDems or Tories.

Guido believes a couple of Tories abstained, including a front-bencher. The Whip doesn’t have the voting records up as yet. If true and the vote had been closer, they would have denied the Opposition a victory. Any co-conspirators know the names?

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
