MPs’ EU voting record

Of note :

The Bruges Group has ranked Members of Parliament according to their voting in the House of Commons since the 2010 General Election You can check how they voted on the key EU related issues that came before them and see who are the genuine Eurosceptics and who are Europhile.

I’ve listed all MPs who scored 50% plus, in percentage order but for the full list, click on the link above.  Therefore, in the light of many campaigns currently underway, including our Say No to the Big 3, perhaps we could be a little circumspect and exclude some of those below from our wrathful box filling at the next elections:

100% Conservative  – Peter Bone, Wellingborough

There may have been errors in transferring from the Bruges’ Group list. These will be corrected as they come to light. It’s fairly obvious from this that the Lib-Dems should be eliminated from the political arena at the next elections.

Well done, Bruges Group, for that mammoth task.

    Peter Bone is very impressive on the few occassions I have seen him being interviewed and has a somewhat nonchalant attitude towards the whips.

    IPJ just asked about the basis on which the list was made. The BG wrote:

    In important votes in the House of Commons if an MP votes to protect or preserve Britain’s democracy and economy from EU interference they are awarded a score of plus 2. If the MP votes in a way that harms our freedom, prosperity and sovereignty the MP receives a vote of minus 2. In the face of pressure from the Whips acting on behalf of their pro-EU leadership an abstention receives a score of plus 1.

    James, Well done you for bringing it to our notice. I will try to give it further circulation. When one considers the damage the EU has caused our nation, studies such as this will provide a very valuable historical record. It might, for example, be used by a future government as a means of deciding MPs future pension reductions!

    My local MP, Philip Davies, appears in joint 3rd place at a meagre 88% – thus a 12% traitor.

    I shall take up this abysmal performance with him and insist that he mend his ways or risk losing my sackful of postal votes in 2015. He will be made aware that anything less than a Bone performance-level in future is unacceptable.

    Thanks you for bringing this disappointing data to my attention – must go, as my spleen needs venting towards that snivelling quasi-socialist who claims to represent me.

    Surprised that Doug Carswell only made 88%. I guess three abstentions counted against him, though if they were votes that were certain to go the way of the Europhiles I’d let him off depending on what he was doing instead at the time. Same with Philip Davies, Mudplugger: three abstentions (and I think not the same three as Carswell). I think these scores should be treated as a starting place for further scrutiny. In any case they’re all still Big Three and most of them are authoritarian, and therefore they’re to be treated with suspicion even if they are reliably anti-EU.
