And last night, the Parliamentary Labour Party, with 48 exceptions abstained on the second reading of the Welfare Bill. Jeremy Corbyn was one of the exceptions as were the leading candidates for London Mayor, at least those who are MPs. The SNP are making a big noise about Labour failing to vote with them, but it doesn’t look like they voted for Labour’s amendment & it’s only second reading! It’s Harman’s decision to abstain, that has created the dilemma.
