Libya: the 13 rebel MPs

The full list of the 13 MPs who voted against military action.

As expected, the Commons has voted overwhelmingly in favour of military action in Libya by 557 to 13 – a majority of 544. Below is the full list of the 13 MPs who voted against the government. The opposition largely consists of Labour MPs from the Socialist Campaign Group, but also includes the Tory MP John Baron, the Green Party leader, Caroline Lucas, and two SDLP members.

Labour's Katie Clark (North Ayrshire and Arran) and Yasmin Queresh (Bolton South-East) acted as tellers for the noes.

It will be worth watching to see whether the increasingly jingoistic tabloid press now demonises them as "traitors".
