Gravesham MP Adam Holloway quit his job as a ministerial aide yesterday as he joined a Conservative rebellion to back calls for a referendum on the European Union.

Prime Minister David Cameron suffered his largest rebellion during the five hour debate with official figures released today revealing that 79 of the party’s 305 lawmakers voted against the government, with two abstaining.

Mr Holloway, who was an aide to Europe minister David Lidington, told the Commons he could not go back on commitments he made to his constituents.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
