Interesting stats on They Work for You about Sylvia Hermon. The MP for North Down's last contribution at the House of Commons was back in March. In fact, since retaining her seat as an independent she has not taken part in any debate, despite business such as Saville and the budget coming before the house.
I hope that Slug can substantiate the information he has posted in the comments section of this thread about complete non-attendance. I will post the evidence immediately if he can.
In the mean time it's quite clear that North Down is receiving practically no representation at Westminster. Still, the situation wasn't much better in the previous parliament, and the constituency voted her in regardless. Frankly, her supporters are getting the representation they deserve.
The question remains whether she stood in the 2010 election out of a genuine desire to serve her constituents, or simply out of spite.
