Disgusted by Brexit hardliners, three MPs abandon the Tories

Conservative MPs Anna Soubry and Sarah Wollaston walk with Labour MPs Chris Leslie and Chuka Umunna as they arrive at the Cabinet Office ahead of a Brexit meeting with Theresa May's Chief of Staff Gavin Barwell and David Liddington M

But the resignations put Mrs May in an even weaker position in Parliament, where her Brexit deal was crushed last month when Eurosceptics and European Union supporters voted against an agreement that both sides say offers the worst of all worlds.

Ms Berger is one of eight former Labour MPs who have quit to join the new Independent Group over Jeremy Corbyn's approach to Brexit and anti-Semitism.

Mr Pollard said comments made by Labour general secretary Jennie Formby to the Parliamentary Labour Party two weeks ago showed the leadership were not taking the antisemitism allegations seriously. There will be times when we will support the Government, for example, on measures to strengthen our economy, security and improve our public services. I would not be able to maintain my support of the Government.

Writing in the Daily Telegraph, Ms Phillips said what happened next would depend on whether the party chose "kindness and healthy self-criticism or instead choose to go to war".

Umunna also hinted that more MPs, including from the Conservative party, could soon be resigning in order to join them.

"I know that raises a myriad of questions but those are for the Conservative Association".

He was readmitted provisionally, pending final approval, on Monday and said it was "good to be back" in a party led by Jeremy Corbyn. If you do that British politics is going to be shaken quite a bit if you get that through - I'm willing to extend confidence and supply to your government so it doesn't fall over through the period of the referendum.

He said: "The Conservative Party has always been a broad church welcoming people with different views on major issues and I do not think that will change".

"I hope they recognise that they were elected to Parliament on a manifesto that was based around investment in the future, was based around a more equal and fairer society and based around social justice", he said.

"While I respect her personal decision - and it can not have been easy - I'm disappointed because I've personally found the Conservatives to be a broad church".

All three rebel lawmakers were part of the more pro-European wing of the Conservative Party and favor holding a second referendum on Brexit.

When asked though, Mr Bradshaw - who is a former Express & Echo reporter - said he had not considered leaving Labour.

And by the way, the PM can trust The Independence Group to keep her in office.

James Palmer, mayor of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority blasted Mrs Allen's "foolish" decision to leave the Conservatives, saying there should be a by-election in South Cambridgeshire. So what we have is a party in waiting, starting off with the position of wanting to disrespect and overturn the largest democratic vote in Britain's history since universal suffrage was achieved.

"To make crystal clear, I did not send the tweet about Joan Ryan from the Young Labour Twitter account and I utterly condemn it", she wrote on Twitter.

"This is the game, of course, they will play but we are better than that, and we think our constituents and the country deserve better than that".
