On Monday I wrote about the MySociety online campaign to persuade MPs to vote against Harriet Harman's desire to keep MP's expenses secret on Thursday. More than 6,700 people have joined the Facebook Group, dozens of blogs from all parts of the political spectrum have taken up the issue and many people have emailed their MPs or contacted them through TheyWorkForYou.
As a result both the LibDem and Conservative parties are imposing a whip on their MPs to fight the move. Labour MPs are on a three line whip to ram in through. This should not be a matter for party politics, it is about doing the right thing. I am delighted that Alan Duncan's first act as Shadow Leader of the House was to toughen up the Partys stance on this issue. Until this week only frontbenchers were being whipped. Now the whole parliamentary part is being asked to vote against.
If you haven't already contacted your own MP to lobby on this issue, it's not too late. The vote isn't until Thursday afternoon. I will be listing here on all those MPs who vote to do one thing, when they make laws which force the rest of us to do the exact opposite.
