Troughers Vote Against Recall Bill

Zac Goldsmith’s bill proposing to allow constituents to recall corrupt MPs passed its first reading by 127 votes to 17 this afternoon. Worth looking at a few of the names who voted against.

There is Labour’s Frank Dobson, who lives in £1 million council flat despite earning three times the average wage.

What about Brian Donohoe, who put through a £2,575 expense claim for one three-seat and two double-seater sofas.

Tom Harris with his three iPads at the taxpayers’ expense.

Not to mention John Baron, who bought a three-bedroom house £153,500, claimed expenses on the mortgage repayments, and then sold the property for £250,000.

And finally Paul Beresford, who through his second job as a dentist, designated his west London property, which includes his surgery, as his second home on expenses.

What possible reason could they have for voting against?
