MPs vote for Brexit but 114 traitors try to block it

MPs have voted 498 to 114 to give Theresa May the authority to trigger Article 50 negotiations to take us out of the EU.

However, this is just the first step on the long road to Brexit. The Brexit Bill still needs to go to the Lords where the Remain-supporting majority will attempt to scupper it and through various committees who will also try to water it down or halt its passage.

This is why it's so important to bolster the pro-Brexit vote with UKIP MPs to ensure that our votes are respected. Many of the 498 MPs who voted to support the bill did so grudgingly, afraid of losing their seats by opposing it. Many of them will vote for wrecking amendments, betting on voters concentrating on the main vote when they judge their MP.

The MPs who voted to block Brexit are as follows:
