So what did our local Labour MPs do in the crucial Gurkha vote


Well as the Daily Post put is:


'George Howarth, the Maghull MP, had tabled an amendment condemning the new rules as “morally wrong and offensive”. But he, Eddie O'Hara, Peter Kilfoyle, Ben Chapman and Frank Field, backed down when ministers hinted a further review would allow many more Gurkhas to stay'


Joe Benton (Bootle) and Rosie Cooper (West Lancs) nether of whom -it is rumoured-expect to be in the next parliament vote with the government.....................why?

So who was the ONLY local MP to vote for the motion? -well the photo is a clue.
