A Westmonster investigation has exposed the most anti-democratic Tory and Labour MPs in Britain as former Home Secretary Amber Rudd comes out for a second referendum.
These are MPs who support another referendum to overturn the Brexit vote, but whose constituents voted to leave the EU.
One such constituency is Sunderland Central, the most symbolic city who came out for Brexit with 60% of voters backing Leave, but the Labour MP who occupies the seat wants another vote.
Another constituency is Redcar, where a whopping 67% of people voted for Brexit but the local Labour MP Anna Turley says there must be a second referendum.
Amber Rudd last night also came out for a so-called ‘People’s Vote’ in the event of No Deal but her constituency Hastings and Rye voted to leave by 56%, 4% more than the national average.
Here is the full list of the most anti-democratic MPs in the country with the % Leave vote in each constituency:
Anna Soubry –Broxtowe – 52%
Guto Bebb – Aberconwy – 52%
Phillip Lee – Bracknell – 53%
