Pity that we still use a fox hunting term to describe a parliamentary post when hunting is illegal and banned. On the other had it's difficult to think of another suitable name for a person who performs this function?
My mp is a whip. I feel unrepresented as he clearly won't ever rebel. Given current events, I'm hopeful that a remain voting constituency will not forgive him. Spineless. The only worse position would be to have the speaker as your mp. How is that democracy?
I really dislike this element of politics. The whole towing of the party line thing... We elect a politician on their merits. Their opinions aligning with our own. Then, if they get into parliament, they aren't allowed to vote the way they want to!?
I have to admit, in recent years, it's started to turn me off the whole process.
