Shows which MPs voted most similarly to this one in the 2019-present, Westminster Parliament (whilst Independent). This is measured from 0% agreement (never voted the same) to 100% (always voted the same). Only votes that both MPs attended are counted. This may reveal relationships between MPs that were previously unsuspected. Or it may be nonsense.
