Andrew Dismore and his Parliamentary Colleagues should be ashamed

Yesterday was a bad day for democracy in this country.

Andrew Dismore, Labour MP for Hendon was one of 113 MPs to pass a bill which would block the public from finding out information about the work they are doing and how much of the public's money they are spending.

Could Andrew Dismore have supported this policy, because he is fed up with the the media showing that he is an MP, which claims the most amount of tax-payers money for his office.

Andrew Dismore and his colleagues should remember that they are not special, rather he should remember he is a public servant and so should not stop the public from trying to find out information on how much he spends....

and is there anything else he is trying to hide?

Given that the Speaker has already given assurances that this would not be the case, this is a tad hysterical, no?

Also, of those 113 MPs that voted for the Amendment, did that include the Conservative Member who wrote and subsquently piloted the Amendment through the House?
