For those interested in how often MPs vote against their own party, the website revolts.co.uk is back in action. There was a break because of the period of funding coming to an end, but the site, run primarily by Philip Cowley and Mark Stuart, has resumed service. It has proved invaluable over the years to journalists and others who are keen to know just how rebellious MPs are and who comprise the rebels. Dissension among Labour MPs has reached unprecedented levels and the best predictor of who will rebel is who has rebelled before.
I see the site also includes a link to the Browser and Philip Cowley’s selection of five books about Parliament that he recommends. I had not seen the list before and its inclusion of a certain Hull academic’s first book!
