House of Commons Vote On Continuing British Military
Involvement in Afgahnistan, 9 September 2010

Note that More Than 300 MPs (apparently including Mr Cameron, Mr Clegg, and the Brothers Miliband) could not even be bothered to vote - or perhaps did not want their names in the historical records!

Compare/Contrast: :'(

Above House Of Commons Voting Figures - and recent opinion polls that say about three quarters of the British population want our troops withdrawn quickly.

It is surely a curious form of 'representative democracy' we live in when only 16 MPs represent more than 75% of the popular opinion  - and the other 600+ MPs (directly or by not voting) represent the other 25%.

Some 'democratic short-fall' in this, surely?!
