Types of Members of Parliament – The Ideologist
Some Conservative MPs on the right, especially the stronger Eurosceptics, and Labour MPs on the left are out of line with the centre of gravity of their party and keep up a critique of policies, including those of their own party, from this standpoint.
They can use opportunities in the Commons to push their views.
Peter Bone the Conservative MP for Wellingborough introduced Bills in the last Parliament such as reintroducing the death penalty, banning the burka and abolishing Nick Clegg’s post of Deputy Prime Minister, none of which endeared him to then Prime Minister David Cameron.
