Very nice Iains, but it does not tell us which members of the public voted to remain or to stay.
Well let us make an assumption that those that voted for a Labour MP in the 2015 election also maintained their majority vote one year later in the referendum.
I take as an example Birmingham Northfields These figures are actual.
Labour Richard Burden 17,673 41% in 2015 election
Labour Richard Burden 23,596 53.2% in 2017 election Increase 11.6 %
June 2016 Referendum result by wards of Northfields constituency:
WARD Renain Leave Total Remain Leave
Kings Norton 4,275 6,643 10,918
Longbridge 4,269 8,157 12,426
Northfield 5,005 8,151 13,156
Weoley 4,785 6,695 11,480 7 18,334 27,256
59$ voted leave
53% voted labour
That succinctly demonstrate a labour stronghold that voted leave
