Midlands MPs have today debated the process by which the UK will leave the European Union following the triggering of Article 50.
Speaking in Parliament, the East Midlands Conservative MP Ken Clarke said he will not back the Article 50 bill to trigger Brexit, describing visions of a post-EU future as a "wonderland" fantasy.
Ken Clarke's Rushcliffe constituency was the only area in Nottinghamshire that voted to stay in the EU.
In the same debate, Anna Soubry, the MP for Broxtowe, joined others who expressed their concern at the 'lack of detail' the government has given ahead of the talks with the EU.

The Brexit talks will be difficult and expressing concern over their direction should not be characterised as opposing the public's decision to leave the EU, Labour's Margaret Beckett has said.
The MP for Derby South criticised Brexit secretary David Davis' opening remark that the vote on triggering Article 50 was about whether MPs "trusted" the British public.
"I hope that the practice of dismissing any call, any queries, any concerns, however serious or well founded, as merely demonstrating opposition to the will of the British people ... will now cease."

A composer from Northamptonshire is hoping her new piece of music will bring people together after 'Brexit'.
Paula Boulton, from Corby, was inspired by the musical memories of 30 people, who have moved to the town from all over the world.
When composing the seven-movement 'Sounds of Home Suite', Paula asked people what music reminds them of home.
"I think music has the power to bring people together. Why build a wall, when you can build an orchestra and have people play music together and reach their souls and hearts through music? That's what we need to do. No one's going anywhere, we can't just disintegrate people, we have to learn to live together."
The piece premieres with a 60-strong orchestra at The Core at Corby Cube tonight (Saturday 21st January).

Ordinarily a by-election in a safe Conservative seat in Lincolnshire would barely raise an eyebrow in Westminster, but these are no ordinary times.
On Thursday all eyes will be on Sleaford and North Hykeham, as voters go to the polls to replace Stephen Phillips, the Tory MP who quit over the Government's handling of Brexit.
And in a constituency that voted to leave the European Union - Brexit is dominating the contest, with UKIP hoping to cause an upset.
