"It is finished."


I wonder how many ordinary citizens understand the duties of the 'whip' within a political party.

A whip is an official in a political party whose primary purpose is to ensure party discipline in a legislature. Whips are party enforcers, who typically offer inducements and threaten punishments for party members to ensure that they vote according to the official party policy. A whip's role is also to ensure that the elected representatives of their party are in attendance when important votes are taken.
