Including tellers, 99 Conservative MPs voted against the Government’s proposal to delay Brexit to 30th June today.

Despite a three-line whip, only 133 Conservative MPs voted for the motion – a remarkably low number, which underscores the collapse in the authority of the Tory whip. A further 80 Conservative MPs – including Andrea Leadsom, Liam Fox, Geoffrey Cox and Brandon Lewis – did not vote.  As ever we must be careful to ascribe not voting to a deliberate political abstention, given that absence can be caused by illness and other reasons, but 80 is very high for a whipped division.

Presumably since Gauke et al were previously allowed to stay in Cabinet after abstaining in the face of a three-line whip, there will not be any disciplinary consequences for the absence of these Cabinet ministers. As this site predicted, the effect has been deleterious on discipline.
