A pro-EU cohort of Labour MPs resign from the party led by far-left Jeremy Corbyn in a significant turn of events.
Luciana Clare Goldsmith MP, known as Luciana Berger, declared that they are creating an independent group in the House of Commons.
Luciana Berger Member of Parliament for Liverpool Wavertree claimed she felt “embarrassed and ashamed” and even branded Corbyn’s Labour Party as “institutionally anti-Semitic”.
Berger said that she was “leaving behind a culture of bullying, bigotry and intimidation”.
Chris Leslie MP also claimed that the Labour Party had been taken over by “machine politics” of the far-left-wing.
The other MPs were Chuka Umunna, Angela Smith, Mike Gapes, Gavin Shuker and Ann Coffey.
The Independent Group of MPs have already set-up a Twitter page and have been fairly active on their since its launch.
The Independent Group have released a statement: “We believe that none of today’s political parties are fit to provide the leadership and direction needed by our country.”
It is currently unclear whether the group of independent former Labour MPs will register a political party with the electoral commission.
