NEW! How MPs voted on Key Issues

We've added a smashing new feature to all our MP pages, courtesy of Francis at PublicWhip

You can now check out which way MPs tended vote on half a dozen key issues from the last Parliament (Iraq, Fox Hunting, ID cards. Top Up Fees etc) via a nice, easy to understand panel.

For example, mining the voting record of Graham Allen, Labour MP for Nottingham North, shows that he was pretty dubious about the Iraq war, but very strongly in favour of a ban on fox hunting.

This information is the result sophisticated mining of PublicWhip's detailed vote data covering hundreds of Parliamentary divisions.

We hope it'll make it easier for you to keep track of where your MP really stands on key issues - after all, They Work For You.
