Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

More generally, this exercise allows us to make the following claims:

421 out of 574 English and Welsh constituencies probably voted to Leave

Of these, 270 English and Welsh constituencies almost definitely voted to Leave

152 constituencies probably voted to Remain.

Of these, half (76) almost definitely voted to Remain.

Which all leaves a lot of flexibility for individual MPs to decide which class their own constituency falls into and possibly encouraged by the claims that some people regret their vote decision.

The whole thrust of the discussion here is that MPs will decide simply on the risk of losing their seat or not.
Which in turn contains an implicit assumption that they plan to stand again in 2020.
The elephant in the room is that nobody has claimed that MPs will have an Epiphany and suddenly recognise that Brexit is really a wonderful thing for the UK.
