That is the number of MPs who supported the Coalition's decision to bung the IMF an additional £9.2billion when the vote, without a debate, was taken in the House of Commons late last night, on the draft International Monetary Fund (Increase in Subscription) Order 2011.
Richard North is hoping to publish over the next 273 days profiles of each and every one of the 274, having started this evening with Nigel Adams, MP for Selby and Ainsty.
It is the intention of this blog to link to Richard North's post on these 274, each and every day - and it would help if other blogs did likewise. These bastards need to be 'named and shamed' to the widest audience possible!
Of the remaining 130 MPs who were not present, perhaps the question should be asked of them where they were and why - allowing of course for the Speaker and his Assistants etc.
