Re: "the opportunities created by Brexit".

Not scum like Dr Lee, who's Bracknell constituency voted leave.

As the referendum wasn't by constituency then it doesn't matter. Furthermore, MPs are representatives and not delegates either of constituences nor party. Numerous votes, not least the repeal of the death penatly, were probably unpopular with a majortiy of constituents at the time. Nevertheless, the principle of the MPs freedom to vote is central to our parliamentary democracy, which we're seeing the current government trying to dismantle.
