The absentees who saved the government

On the terrorism bill were, according to the Guardian:
"Vincent Cable, the Lib Dem Treasury spokesman, (who) was caught up in a mass lobby of Parliament by the Make Poverty History campaign and arrived too late to vote, Brian Binley, Tory MP for Southampton South forgot to leave his mobile on. George Galloway, the Respect MP who has made no secret of his opposition to the terrorism bill, was speaking at a commercial event."
What? Did you expect your MP to be concerned with such mundane matters such as defending your ancient rights and privileges as a British subject in Parliament or something? Oh how bourgeois!
