Lincoln People Shocked With Karl McCartney, MP For Voting Against Boris Johnson

Published on

  • Karl McCartney, MP for Lincoln voted against wearing face masks in public, Covid Passports, and social care workers vaccines

 

The majority of people in Lincoln are shocked and disgusted with their MP Karl McCartney for voting against plans to battle the COVID pandemic.

Since the vote took place on Tuesday and it came to light that the MP for Lincoln ignored the wishes of those living there, we have been inundated with emails from people who were shocked.

The majority of Lincolnshire MPs voted against Boris Johnson plans to tackle the pandemic. Karl McCartney was just one of those MPs.

In the Tuesday vote five of our eight Lincolnshire Conservative MPs voted against the draft Health and Social Care Act 2008.

The Government wanted to introduce a bill where people who attend nightclubs and large venues in England would be required to show coronavirus passes.

Although the majority of Lincolnshire MPs including Karl McCartney voted against the Bill, it still passed. It was approved by 369 to 126 votes in favour of COVID passports.

Two other new laws were also approved this evening.

A law for people to wear face coverings in indoor places such as museums and galleries was passed even though Lincoln MP Karl McCartney voted against the Bill.

Another law was also passed that makes it mandatory for NHS and social care workers to have received a coronavirus vaccine in order to go to work. They will be required to have received a vaccine by April 2022. Some of those in the NHS and social care who don’t want the vaccine have said it is unfair.

We have received emails from people living and working in Lincoln who have said they are shocked with their MP for voting against the plans to save lives.

A lot of those emails came from people working within the NHS who have said that Karl McCartney should work in a hospital for a week and then decide if he still wants to vote against the Bill.

A nurse from Lincoln who did not wish to be named said she was shocked and disgusted by Karl McCartney voting against face masks and COVID passports.

Another nurse from Lincoln said that MPs should be working together to fight the pandemic and not think of themselves or their political futures.

In a previous report, we found that those living in Lincolnshire were fed up with their Conservative MPs. The majority of those that we spoke to said they would not be voting for their Conservative MP at the next General Election. That could mean that Lincolnshire will have more Labour MPs than ever before.
