The blue shows you how many MP's will face this problem.

Actually it doesn't as the referendum districts do not match single parliamentary constituencies. In particular, pretty well all city referendum districts comprised multiple constituencies (particularly London) wheras country districts usually contained just one.


I've not seen any attempt to convert the referendum result into parliamentary constituencies (and can't be bothered to do so myself) but I am pretty sure, as with the referendum result itself, it would be pretty close. Given the relative oversupply of Scottish MPs probably very close.
