I have not yet read through yesterday's debate in Hansard but have looked through the list of how MPs voted. Readers will be glad to know that Henry Smith MP voted only once this time and that was against the Government, for the Motion. Here is the list of both Ayes and Noes. [Scroll about a third of the way down.] Many of the usual suspects but they were joined by quite a few supposed "eurosceptics" like Chris Heaton-Harris and the delectable Ms Patel who do not usually put their heads above the parapet. One can only surmise that, contrary to the media and eurosceptic hysteria, they do not think that there will be many personal consequences to their rebellion.
