It was 52% in favour of leaving and a majority of 1.2 million so in a democracy the vote must be implemented.
Having some cities stay and some leave would create bedlam and would be totally unworkable.
The point made is that if an MP's constituency voted leave, that MP should back the leave vote, no matter what the MP's preferences were, and the exact same should apply if an MP's constituents voted remain.
MP's of all parties are put in Parliament to represent the people that voted for them at a G.E.
MP's are the servants of the electorate, and should fulfil to the best of their ability the wish of their electorate.
A classic example of the "I know better than you" thought process, is that woman Anna Soubry, whose constituency of Broxtowe voted leave.
Maybe she should step down, fight a bye election as an Independent and then see if those that voted leave would stand by her against a Tory or Labour candidate.
My daughter's constituency is Broxtowe and the voters there, both Labour and Tory who voted Leave are angry at her to say the least,
