The Great Give-Away
Quietly last night, smothered by the Murdoch fiasco, the Westminster parliament voted 274 to 246 in favour of increasing the UK's contribution to the IMF by £9.3 billion.
According to John Redwood the result implies that more than 80 tories were unavailable, abstained or voted against the government. Many Labour MPs behaved in the same manner even though Labour recommended voting against.
Mr Redwood states he will be checking the voting lists later today. I do hope he names the 80 complete with voting intentions. That 274 MPs voted to give the IMP nearly £10 billion to support its euro fantasy shows they have little regard for the average working person who is being taxed into oblivion.
