    Its no less democratic than using a 3LW. I'm confident my votes were as the MP in question would have voted - something few others could claim.

    Does UKIP understand how the leader selecting the MPs is undemocratic?
    Leaders are elected democratically to make decisions.

    Statement from the Leader of the Labour Party:

    A hearty congratulations to our two new MPs the Hon. tmpearce99 and the Hon. cranbrook_aspie!
    The conduct of the 2 outgoing MPs was abysmal and I give my humblest apologies to the House. They failed in their duty and I, as their leader, must take full responsibility. Whilst I hold that Labour should keep the seats now that two decent and hugely worthy individuals have taken them up (from what I've seen in the sub-forum they'll soon prove their worth) trust that I understand how important active MPs are.

    We can and will do better.
    Thank you RayApparently , I think that we both cannot wait to serve the party the best we can

    We do have the facilities for a whip, as in we're not an anti-whipping party, but there has never been a formal whip during my time representing the Labour Party.

    There is no pressure, no.

    We explain the effects of the bill in case anyone has missed them (which is easy to do) or was not fully aware of the Government agenda (which is understandable when you've only been an MP for a matter of days) and may recommend a decision as a result of this.

    The labour party really only has to influence their leader, then it works as he 'votes' on his Mps behalf on occasions.

    Hi,Can you please make sure you vote on V800 here. The party recommendation is a No vote as we have other plans for business that this would jeopardise.Thanks,Fez

    I class this as pressure.

    I class this as reminding a member who has only been an MP since Saturday a) that he needs to vote and b) what the implications are of the bill upon Government plans put in place long before he joined the House in a concise manner.

    No, that would be reminding him there's a vote. if he needed to know that, then direct him to the debate.
