This law does not require you to have done anything wrong, you merely 
have to be accused, which is why people are going crazy. You don't have 
to be convicted. It could be somebody in your house who has been accused 
and then you're cut off.

Of course, we're going to get a polite email in 6 months time telling us 
how the PM carefully considered our opinion and then ignored it anyway, 
but if you don't vote you can't complain.
