On 20 October, 265 Tory MPs voted to allow water companies to pollute UK rivers with raw sewage. The names of the 256 MPs are here:

Voting to allow water companies to pollute UK rivers with raw sewage would appear to be a serious breach of the MPs Code of Conduct:

It is possible that the named MPs have acted criminally in allowing the pollution of river water, and we will seek a legal opinion on that. We will also seek an opinion from the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards on the apparent breach of the MPs Code of Conduct.

“Why would anybody, let alone those people paid to represent us, think the deliberate pollution of our rivers is acceptable. We certainly pay enough to the water companies to do the job required of them. These MPs and the water companies must be held to account. What is wrong with doing the job you are paid to do?”

“I think the MPs who supported this 'motion' (apologies) and further contaminate our water courses and rivers should be removed from representation of constituents in the HoC.
Our green spaces are dear, re introduction of otters and beavers and these idiots seen for to follow a buffoon such as Johnson.
Morons each and every one”
