Yeah I know it gives the right MP but what I meant was, has anyone seen an answer that doesn't say didn't bother to vote?

Plus, if there was half the amount of discussion about all of this more often than every five years, then maybe the state of the nation wouldn't be half as bad as it is.

Have a look at this post earlier in the thread: Link: How did your MP vote on the digital economy bill?

I think that the website VoteThemOut.co.uk - How did your MP vote on the digital economy bill? deliberately presents the data [in the case of the non-voters] in an inflammatory manner.
The website creators are pushing their own agenda.

My Labour MP Gisela Stewart (Lab, Bham Edgbaston) (Her values are Labour, but she has a mind of her own, as her local leaflets tell us which I take to mean "I'm screwed") was absent.
My Dad's MP (Lab, South Derbyshire) voted against it. He's retiring at the end of this Parliament, so one would hope he voted for the people rather than for the whip.

Might I suggest that everyone start using the TOR network as a mater of course.

Think I'll be upgrading to the Giganews Diamond package... VPN+The best news feed around for $29.99/mo
My MP also didn't bother to vote... can't wait to get rid of him, he's also about to retire having taken full advantage of the expenses system!

I can't get that site to work, but I suspect my chap didn't turn up. [EDIT: It's turned out he did turn up and opposed the bill]
There obviously must have been something really good going on that day.

My MP Lynne Jones Opposed, fair play to her shame shes standing down....
I just sent her an email asking for a better explanation as to how things like this are allowed to go through when so many MPs didnt vote.

I'd be interesting to hear who placed the advert.
