back on the coalface today and backfilling the various people who've changed parties over the past term.

There are a lot more than I thought - I make it 38 distinct MPs who either resigned the whip or had it taken away? (One of those was for only a couple of hours - the party suspended him before he could announce his resignation)

There were I think 52 in 2017-19 - the Brexit purges by the Conservatives - but the five Parliaments before that each only had 5-10 people suspended or resign the whip.

Have we got higher standards or shadier MPs? (Or possibly both)
