The Conservative motion to suspend the Post Office closure program was beaten by 288 to 268 votes on Wednesday. Over 90 Labour MPs and seven Cabinet Ministers campaigned in their local constituencies to keep their Post Offices open. Nineteen of those Labour MPs disobeyed the whip and voted for the Conservative motion. Of course this means that at least seventy one of those Labour MPs campaigning to keep Post Offices open, voted to continue with the Post Office closure program.
Did your Labour MP tell you they were pulling out all the stops to keep your Post Office open? To find out if they were full of crap, click HERE.
