77% say "no" to extra week off

So 77% of our Notts readers reckon MPs shouldn't get the extra week away from Parliament for Christmas this year.

Admittedly only nine people voted in the Lobbydog poll - but the result still gives a bigger majority than any Government has had in the last ten years, so I'm claiming a mandate to read into it.

Most MPs would say they will use the extra time to deal with constituency matters.

The question is - does this mean voters don't trust their MPs to spend their time away from Parliament working? And if that is the case what can MPs do to regain the trust?

I'm actually really interested to hear from the two people that voted for the extra week. If you happen to read this then leave a comment.
