How many exactly voted against this? It looks like something between 2-5! Excellent graph

Of course, if the parties which proposed the vote wanted MPs to actually vote for it, they would a) hold when as many MPs who might vote for it were in the house, and b) tell people about it. The possibility that it was done merely as a trick to catch out Labour is neither here nor there.

But 40% or so of the voters would STILL vote for them.

HAHAHAHA.............. nice one. I still can't understand why anyone would EVER vote for Labour after the crap hole they turn this country into every single time they get back into power. One day the other parties will just say "F*ck it, you fix your own mess this time!"

You forgot the graph that shows "Number of Ed Balls - 1".... "Number of Ed Balls that turned up to vote - 0".

You are right - Labour are no better than the Lib Dems.
