Three cheers for economic liberals

Wading through the Northern Rock theft bill division list in Hansard, I spotted some unexpected names in the noes list:

Clare Short. I didn't think she bothered with Parliament these days, what with her lack of chums in the House. Equally, I would not have had her name marked for being opposed to stealing the commanding heights of the economy.

Frank Field - way to go Frank. Actually no - I got the wrong Field, as Umbongo pointed out in the comments. So Frank, along with Gisela Stuart, hang your heads in shame. No sign of a vote from the member for Vauxhall....

Pete Wishart - SNPer and formerly of sundry Caledonian beat combos.

More names later if I pin down any other rebels etc.

Actually Frank Field voted aye and Mark Field voted no. I've got a lot of respect for Frank but not this time round.

No sign of a vote from the member for Vauxhall....

I feel another email coming on...

Hoey says she was too busy to vote against the bill.

Apart from Europe, fox-hunting and Ulster, Hoey is pretty left-wing - esp. on the economic front. That's why she'll never join us.
