Just 25 MPs out of 646

As a post-script to the post below, on the vote for the third reading of Maclean's contemptible little Bill, just 25 MPs out of 646 voted against the Bill. It is these 25 members that we should listen to now. Indeed, I suspect that if Norman Baker, Frank Field and John Redwood spent a morning together, they could come up with a workable Commons remuneration and expenses framework that would meet the nation's approval.

Let's state their names with pride:

Baker, Norman
Burt, Lorely
Clappison, Mr. James
Corbyn, Jeremy
Cousins, Jim
Farron, Tim
Field, rh Mr. Frank
Fisher, Mark
Galloway, Mr. George
Gerrard, Mr. Neil
Gidley, Sandra
Goldsworthy, Julia
Harris, Dr. Evan
Hoey, Kate
Hollobone, Mr. Philip
Howarth, David
Hughes, Simon
Kramer, Susan
Maples, Mr. John
Norris, Dan
Redwood, rh Mr. John
Shepherd, Mr. Richard
Soulsby, Sir Peter
Williams, Hywel
Winnick, Mr. David

Simon Hughes is the BEST MP in the Commons.

They should all make a stance by applying for the Chiltren Hundreds. The resulting by-elections might be enough to trigger the dissolution of Parliament so that the Augean Stables can be cleansed.
