Offord backs Euro rebellion, Freer bottles it

The BBC has published the full list of MP's voting for a Euro referendum. Hendon MP Matthew Offord stuck by his principles and voted for the referendum. Finchley and Golders Green MP Mike Freer bottled it and voted to keep his promotion prospects alive.

Full list here - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-15387333 -

You may find Mike Freer's comments on Twitter on this subject rather entertaining

Today :-
Mike Freer MP
I support George Eustace's amend. Yes to reform of our relat with EU. Yes to referend at some pt. No to distracting the PM from econ now.
 
Mike Freer MP
How important is the EU debate to my voters? So far 10 emails on the EU, 40 about planning reforms and 220 on the ditched forestry reforms.

Last week :-
Mike Freer MP
Motion on EU and the UK would give people a say on our relationship with the EU. People should have another say - the EU has changed
 
A week is a long time in politics (especially in Finchley and Golders Green)

Perish the thought that people may be allowed to express their opinions and make a decision.
