Roll of Honour

The following Labour MPs voted last night for an inquiry into the Iraq War:

Harry Cohen (Leyton & Wanstead)
Jeremy Corbyn (Islington North)
Mark Fisher (Stoke Central)
Kelvin Hopkins (Luton North)
Lynne Jones (Selly Oak)
Bob Marshall-Andrews (Medway)
John McDonnell (Hayes & Harlington)
Alan Simpson (Nottingham South)
Sir Peter Soulsby (Leicester South)
Bob Wareing (Liverpool West Derby)

David Taylor (Leicester North West) went through both lobbies (Aye and No), the traditional way of actually recording an abstention rather than simply staying away.

But where were all the other Labour MPs who voted against the war, not to mention those, including Jon Cruddas, who say that they now regret having voted for it? And why did most of them, as well as some of the above, nominate the pro-war Gordon Brown for Leader?
