Neil Carmichael defends vote decision

Nov 25, 2014, 07:34 AM, Stroud, Gloucestershire, England

The MP for Stroud has been criticised after promising to vote IN FAVOUR of more freedoms for pub landlords...but then voting AGAINST!

Last week MP's backed a change in the law so landlords can buy beer on the open market - rather than only from the brewery that owns their pub.

It's emerged Mr Carmichael - who voted against it - had promised the Stroud branch of CAMRA that he would back the motion...and even posed for a photo with a placard.
