    So your Lib Dem MP voted against the tuition fee rise. They signed the pledge and kept to it. Will you vote for them again or can you now not support the party as a whole?

    Personally, I reckon if they kept their promise and are doing what their constituents ask of them, then they should be voted back in. In the past they had little say and people still voted for them. They still have little say, still kept their promise, I reckon they still should be voted in.

    Chris Huhne?

    edit: If it is him, he would have voted for the fees increase.

    How does this add to the thread? I'm talking about MP's that kept their promises.

    If your saying you wouldn't vote for an MP that kept their promise because they are part of a party that as a whole didn't, then say that.

    I like my MP and he was always staunchly against student fees.

    Tbh when it comes down to it you should be voting for the MP who will do the best for your area.

    Where I'm standing now, yes. The guy's got balls to do that, and it shows he's willing to do the right thing irrelevant of party line, at least to some extent. But it'll take some contemplating, there's bigger factors to consider then just the pat on the back he deserves.

    Yep. Well, actually I am about 2 mins walk out of his constituency but as a) I can't vote anyways and b) I hate our mp - I have decided to adopt him regardless

    OP, sorry - not much of a contribution, but hey I bumped you thread for you didn't I!

    I wish I could but I'm stuck right in the middle of the Forest of Dean. Apart from my town, which has always voted labour, its not very pro Tory. It's a shame, I wish we had a liberal MP (one that doesn't break their promises).

    I agree with a post a bit further up. Its about what the MP does for your area, not who he sleeps with in parliament to get a better job

    i dont think i could re-elect my lib dem mp. it seems to go against everything he was saying before the election. he seems more loyal to the tory manifesto than his own. after promising to local colleges that fees would be froze, i think he will lose his seat next election.
