MPs overwhelmingly voted against amendments to the European Union bill this evening, after a lengthy debate in the Commons.
Veteran eurosceptic Bill Cash led the debate by putting forward a series of radical changes designed to defend the sovereignty of parliament from the EU and the courts.
His amendment was defeated by 39 to 314. (353)
Ok, lets do the maths. There are 650 members of parliament, that means 297 members didn't give a fuck about UK parliamentary sovereignty and didn't turn up to vote.
Who are these lazy bastards and are they fiddling there expenses in there absence from the house.
Clearly a case of institutional fiddling
