Former chancellor Ken Clarke was the only Conservative party MP to vote against the Government's Brexit Bill, it has emerged.
Clarke previously likened visions of a post-Brexit future to a "wonderland-type" fantasy, saying "apparently you follow the rabbit down the hole and you emerge in a wonderland where suddenly countries around the world are queuing up to give us trading advantages."
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).
