Weekend read: MPs who vote both ways

Before I read this article by the BBC’s Ed Lowther, I hadn’t realised that it was even possible for MPs to vote both ‘Aye’ and ‘No’ during the same division. Lowther’s careful discussion of the arguments for and against makes for a genuinely interesting read, and highlights the lack of any other mechanism for actively abstaining from Parliamentary votes. It’s a relatively short article for a Weekend Read, but it’s well worth reading.
