    Anyone, especially MPs would have to be next level mongoloid to not want Brexit to go ahead now. The EU (which has gone to ****) has all but said "bye then", and the rest of the world wants to talk trade.

    For a given Labour MP, while the majority of their constituents might have voted for Brexit, the majority of their voters probably voted Remain. One could argue that they should then vote as the majority of their voters did.

    A voter is someone who voted for you. A constituent may have voted for another party.

    A leader who never demonstrated any loyalty to his party leadership when he was a follower has no authority over rebels whatever.

    Ah, makes sense. However, I would think the view of the majority of the constituents in a separate dedicated voting exercise trumps (small t) the view of the voters in a General or By-election.
