It's the 21st Century

This system of dissallowing electronic voting disadvantages those approx 200 MPs who are self isolating - so effectively the system is discrimatory and isn't representing around around a third of the population of the U.K.

One assumes that the Conservative worry with implementing electronic voting is that the whips might have less sway over how people vote which means Mps might actually have a chance to vote according to constituents wishes rather than the party line.
