History made

A small piece of history was made in the Commons yesterday when for the first time because of the existence of the Fixed Terms Parliament Act there was a vote as to whether to hold an early general election. By 522 votes to 13 to Commons voted in favour of holding an election on 8th June. A few Labour MP’s voted against the idea. I am heading back to Bury today for the weekend. Inevitably a lot of election planning in between all my existing engagements and meetings.

  1. Dear David, All your friends in Rotherham will be wishing you all the best in the election ahead. I look forward to hearing that you have been re-elected with an increased majority.
    Love to Sue, Your friend Christian.

  2. Well, sir, I hope that one of your first actions when re-elected is the repeal of the stupid fixed-term parliament idea.
