    It's criminal really to abstain on important votes, never mind life-death stuff like this

    Parliament works strangely.

    The opposition parties don't have to support or provide opposition to any government bill. This means it is then left to the government to whip it's own MPs to supports it's motions.

    I can give you an example of a much better system - proportional representation where every vote actually counts. This is used around Europe and in most countries in the world, even in fake democracy regimes.

    There are pretty much only 2 major countries in the world that still use FPTP system - UK and USA and both are FUBARed because of it.
