Conservative MP Maria Caulfield is an interesting case as her constituency of Lewes, who voted her in with a 2.14 per cent majority (72.74 per cent turnout) bridges two EU referendum voting wards.
Lewes voted Remain, 52.07 per cent to 47.93 (77.89 per cent turnout), while Wealden voted Leave, 54.5 per cent to 45.5 (80.03 per cent turnout).
Maria Caulfield campaigned for Leave, while the larger geographic half of her constituency voted for Remain.

Your point is? She doesn't care. She got her snout in the trough at the last election and that's all that concerned her. Her next concern will be staying aboard the gravy train at the next general election. There are enough greedy Tories and gullible fools in Lewes to keep her in too.

How many voters are there in the two constituencies? Without these figures you cannot make such an assertion 'Awkward'. To me it looks like the Western district constituency is three times the size of the Lewes one. I suspect though that the Lewes parliamentary constituency does not include all of the Wealden restrict. Complicated. :-(
