    abstention is not an honest option but it is entirely in line with the haughty approach of this particular MP, who sadly represents me and who I saw about another issue recently. Her response about that, too was hasty and ill-thought. Certainly, I would enjoy voting for another MP or abstaining in a general election, and indeed would encourage others to do likewise.

    Well, abstaining is really an indirect ‘no’ vote. Is she that stupid to think we believe she wouldn’t have voted that way? She’s not off the hook if that’s what she thinks. None of them are who abstained or were conveniently absent. We will find out who they are and send a clear message come 2015 as a reminder that they represent all constituents not just some of them whom they kow-tow to.
