Thurrock MPs Jackie Doyle-Price and Stephen Metcalfe abstain on Universal Credit vote


BOTH Thurrock MPs, Jackie Doyle-Price and Stephen Metcalfe abstained on a vote on Universal Credit on Wednesday night in the House of Commons.

Labour inflicted the “symbolic” defeat, hours after work and pensions secretary David Gauke announced he would end a 55p-a-minute helpline for welfare claimants.

Up to two dozen Conservative MPs had said they may support a Labour motion, which called for ministers to “pause and fix” the controversial welfare reform, which the government whipped its MPs to abstain on.

In the end, however, just one Conservative MP, the chair of the health select committee Sarah Wollaston, voted with Labour.


  1. Valen you hit the nail on the head.

    The poor have been kicked around by the middle class while the super rich have lined there pockets with wealth from the middle class.

    The Middle class are so dumb but hey they keep voting Tory.

    The Media tell the Middle class its the poor while the rich get richer no banker bashing now folks
