Alec Shelbrooke abstain

After most Labour MPs abstained today on an SNP motion to scrap the UK’s Trident nuclear weapons system, Tory MP Alec Shelbrooke thundered that any MP who abstained on such an important matter was not fit to hold office:

Which is a bit strange.

Because as recently as January this year, Shelbrooke himself didn’t even bother to turn up to abstained in a vote on Trident renewal (TheyWorkForYou):

And in 2014, Shelbrooke also abstained in another important vote concerning national security, the vote on airstrikes against ISIS in Iraq:

It must be hard to keep track of your values when you have so many…

  1. I dont know much but what I do know, is the difference between honesty and dishonesty, humility and lack of. You lot should spend less time discrediting one another and being destructive and more time being creative and productive. I am extremely disheartened as a proud English man to not understand our politicians and I dont mean what they say, I mean them, as people if I wasn’t so weak and fearful I would do something myself!!!
