As we move to the 2015 United Kingdom General Election, I start to realise that this could well be the most important general election in the history of the United Kingdom. This series has attracted quite a lot of interest, for obvious reasons: to make everything easy to find, I’ve started an index.
Here follows a list of the incumbent MPs and their record on devolution, along with some quotes from the referendum and beyond which voters may find of interest.
There are 9 MPs who are choosing not to contest their seat on the 7th of May: whether they are retiring, disgraced, or simply giant cowards, their Devo Files are essentially closed: whoever contests the seat, contests with a blank slate, with no previous record on their devolution votes.
