that an MP’s responsibility is not to obey their electorate’s wishes, it is to do what they - the MPs - believe is in the best interests of the country as a whole. That is Parliamentary Democracy.
Seems the electorate have a different take on the matter. When their elected representatives no longer represent them they are discarded.
That is why the local council elections gave both parties a hammering.
The electorate do not like being lied to.
