My pro-SSM MP did not abstain: he was at a meeting

An update on my previous post.  I emailed my MP to thank him for abstaining on the SSM vote, and received the following reply:
Martin did not abstain on the equal marriage bill last night. He did not vote as he had an important meeting with constituents in Cheltenham on the effects of the government’s welfare reforms. This meeting had already been rearranged once and had to go ahead. Martin remains 100% in favour of equal marriage and will vote for the bill at all its subsequent parliamentary stages and looks forward to it becoming law.

Perhaps we should pray that he is kept away from Parliament by another equally important meeting on the next occasion!
