ABSTRACT
AT LAST it's official: MPs haven't a clue what they are doing. Green Party MP Caroline Lucas reveals: 'When the bell goes for a vote and everyone's rushing over, the conversation is always, "What are we voting for?" I've seen people being pushed physically into the Aye or No lobby with absolutely no idea what they're voting on, which is a scandal.'
