Luke Pollard tweeted videos yesterday showing hundreds of MPs lining up for miles to vote in the House of Commons
MPs have voted to stop voting digitally, meaning they can now only to vote in person in the House of Commons.
Hundreds queued up outside of Parliament yesterday in order to cast their vote - causing long queues as they tried to adhere to social distancing measures.
Plymouth Sutton and Devonport MP, Luke Pollard, tweeted several videos yesterday showing the huge lines of MPs backing up for miles.
Update: instead of queuing in a straight line we are now being sent around the lawn that is on top of the underground car park - lucky it’s sunny and doubly lucky we don’t live in Britain where it rains - ridiculous. pic.twitter.com/TPY1fcW2AP— Luke Pollard MP (@LukePollard) June 2, 2020
Mr Pollard described the system as "ridiculous" and says it is a disadvantage to some politicians:
MPs have recently been able to work remotely and join debates by video link in order to protect themselves from coronavirus.
