The Guardian has created a series of data visualizations showing how Brexit has created new parliamentary blocs in the UK’s House of Commons. By grouping members of parliament by how they vote, The Guardian demonstrates that pro-European MPs usually vote together and that MPs strongly against participation in the EU vote with each other, even if it means voting differently than their party leadership. These voting patterns have split the UK’s two parties into four distinct voting blocs.
