First past the post is supposed to give us the best form of democracy. An MP we can see and lobby. However in the majority of cases the MP is elected by a minority of the electorate who could vote. Often they may support a view not held by the majority of their own electorate – e.g. a pro-remain Tory elected by a leave voting constituency. Obviously a far from perfect system.
