Sinn Fein not the only MPs not to take oath

The ever informative Guy Fawkes’ blog has a little snippet that there might be another MP not taking the oath to Her Majesty. Not this time an objection to the ‘British Queen’ but the erstwhile “Member for Baghdad Central & Bethnal Green” is off in America defending himself against allegations and will not be back in time to take his oath. He therefore faces a £500 fine and the vacation of his seat should he set foot in the Commons.

Maybe like the Members for West Belfast, Newry & Armagh, Fermanagh South Tyrone, Mid Ulster and West Tyrone he’ll just be content with his offices and expenses at Westminster.
