Ever wondered what your MP gets up to?

I came across while reading a post on Nik Rawlinson's blog last week. He was disappointed that his MP responds to email by sending a reply by post, and decided to find out a bit more about him:

That’s disappointing. So what does the man who represents me in Parliament do and believe? I looked him up on TheyWorkForYou to check his voting record and it seems we disagree on at a lot of the most important political points of the day. It says that he:

Voted strongly against a transparent Parliament.
Voted moderately against introducing a smoking ban.
Voted very strongly for the Iraq war.
Voted very strongly against the hunting ban.
Voted moderately against equal gay rights.

So we don’t agree on any of those points.

Just tap in your postcode and you will find a wealth of information about your MP. Give it a go!
