Dear Mr van de Ven,
Thank you for your correspondence regarding my voting record on Iraq.
I have checked both the websites you refer to - Public Whip and They Work For You.
Firstly, they use the same source of information and, secondly, the calculation is misleading.
They weigh the votes in such a way that they do not adequately reflect my stance, which was expressed in the Independent article you read prior to looking on the websites.
I hope this is helpful and I am sorry for the confusion.
So the Good and the Bad. Where do we start?
The Good? He didn't stick the letters MP at the end of his name.
The Bad? This could take a while. He can't face up to the facts in front of a bunch of school kids. Imagine what he'd be like in Parliament. He still hasn't confessed to the fact that, A), he is a puppet, or was it b), he's pro-war? If he was really a good politician, he'd attach a copy of said Independent article, which I hadn't read when I sent him the e-mail.
This letter also exposes Lansley as the puppet he is, voting with the party on an issue that apparently, he strongly disagrees with.
So no, Mr Lansley, your letter is not helpful and neither does it ease my confusion.
Oh, and by the way, searches on Google and the Independent website didn't return the article.
