Most Labour MPs represent a constituency that voted Leave

Yesterday I posted my analysis of how the declared results would map on to Westminster constituencies.

I didn't include in that analysis any reference to the parties which hold those constituencies. For completeness' sake, here's the cross-tabulation of (a) which party holds each seat and (b) my assessment of how that seat voted. Bear in mind that these results apply only to England, Wales, and selected Scottish seats.

First, the raw counts:

Count of Westminster constituencies by party and likely referendum outcome

and now the proportions:

Proportion of constituencies held by each party according to likely referendum outcome

As the tables show, over three quarters of Conservative-held constituencies voted to Leave, and seven in ten Labour-held constituencies. Although Labour as a party is very much more favourable to the EU than the Conservative party, the same cannot be said of the constituencies it holds.
