    Alan Johnson’s profile’s (on the New Statesman, Wikipedia or the BBC websites) don’t appear to paint a picture of a man with any deep allegiance to a particular faith.
    Alan Johnson is proudly quoted (in his New Statesman profile), ‘I’ve read more Marx than Harold Wilson’; which to me suggests that his influences aren’t forged with any religious zeal.

    Thanks for that Mark. Hope you’re right, but why did he vote against the amendment?

    There’s any one of a number of reasons why he voted or didn’t vote a particular way I would think – it seems that the whole process of voting is as much as anything down to politics as opposed to conscience. With whips and protests and everything else, it’s a miracle if any MP ever gets to vote according to their personal instincts. Of course, that might all be nothing to do with it!
