Is your MP on this List of Shame? The 274 MPs who voted to allow suspension of parliament

My MP is on this list; dismal, isn’t it. They are not alone in their belief that the ends justify the means. Nor are they alone in their moral bankruptcy.
O tempora! O mores!

Pride's Purge

Here’s a full list of the disgraceful anti-democratic MPs who voted against stopping the ‘proroguing’ of parliament.

In other words, they supported the suspension of parliament – and themselves – to allow a Prime Minister to dictate whatever he likes without the democratic controls and scrutiny of MPs and parliament.

  1. Could you provide more information about this vote? Specifically, what practical effects will it have? Was it a just symbolic vote, or did it actually grant extra-democratic powers to the Prime Minister? I realize likely new PM Boris Johnson is pushing for a hard Brexit, but I don’t think the majority in Parliament supports that nor a subversion of its political power. I am wrong?
