MP deserves some praise
I find myself in the strange position of writing to praise our MP Chris White for taking a personal stand and voting against the Government on Syria and the lobbying bill. As a result he was dropped by the party whips as the Ambassador for the Social Value Act (a bill which he himself got through Parliament). I find this a strange action by the Government that they will sack one of their back benchers for defying them yet they would not sack Maria Miller who overclaimed around £45,000 of interest on her mortgage. It seems that the Government will sack an MP who votes with his conscience and yet try to hold onto one of their ministers who was over claiming her expenses.
