Have you seen this, surely he hasn't got a leg to stand on. Brandon Lewis should abstain from voting at the moment (under the 'pairing agreement') because his opposite number is off on maternity leave. He abstained from the first six votes about the trade bill, but then voted on the last two ("the most contentious", on staying in the customs union if the UK fails to agree a trade deal with the EU, and on EU medicines regulation, both votes being super tight). So he remembered about it to begin with but then forgot? yeah right perhaps he thought no one would notice

it doesn't help your flagging faith in the parliamentary system does it
