Die with my boots on
Posted Monday, 24 October 2011 at 00:05

Today is the day that some of us get to vote on whether or not we believe the British people should have a say regarding our future relationship with Europe.  There has never been a better time to have that vote.

I am not a rebel, in fact, according to ConHome I am one of the most loyal MPs my party has. However, I cannot possibly vote any other way than 'yes' tomorrow. This day is one of the reasons I came into politics, it is one of the reasons I worked so hard to become an MP and the same applies for many of my colleagues.  

Apparently if I vote yes tomorrow, as one of the MPs whose seat has disappeared in the boundary review, I am going to find it impossible to find a new seat. This is because the whips office will be having words with associations to make sure that those of us who defy the whip tomorrow will be used as an example to other MPs in the future. You know how it goes, ‘Nadine Dorries, or whoever MP rebelled on the EU vote and look what happened to them’ type of example.

It has made me think, will this be worth the trouble? I can only come to one conclusion, if I don’t vote yes I will never be happy in my job again and so it wouldn’t be worth having anyway. If I am going to die, I may as well do it with my boots on.
