I make that 41 for, six against. Apologies to anyone I’ve missed out.

There are two ways of reading the fact that most Conservative MPs didn’t vote at all.  The first is that support for the pro-Palestinian cause, to use a form of shorthand, on the Tory benches is low.  The second is that support for Israel is slipping away – in support of which claim the low number of Conservative MPs opposing the motion will be cited.

My take is the latter.  It may also be that many MPs concluded, as I argued yesterday, that the case for recognition has not been made.
