Wollaston has always struck me as the sort of Tory who might be almost tolerable if we had a system (like the USA pre-Newt Gingrich, as I understand) that permitted MPs to vote relatively independently of party much of the time.

The Brexiteers seem to be preoccupied with two things: (1) Less regulation and lower taxes, which, as you say, are attractive to those who happen to be very rich, but have less obvious advantages to everyone else; and (2) whipping up xenophobia and the tendency to blame everything on immigrants.
