    “It doesn’t appear to be the largest vote loss in British history, e.g.: >For example, in March 1977 Labour lost a vote by 293-0 on public spending cuts to pay for a 1976 loan from the International Monetary Fund (IMF). In that instance, party managers instructed Labour MPs not to take part.”

    I think this is super interesting. It’s the kind of claim that races through the media because it sounds so good but the actual situation is clearly more nuanced. I wonder – would you like to start a ‘fact check’ article on the claim? We could surely quote the claim from several sources both left, right, and center, and then show why it is – at a minimum – simplistic.

    I think – without having done all my homework yet – that there is a kernel of truth to it. But it’s something like “Largest defeat in a case where the other side didn’t refrain from participating” or even more narrow than that.
