DOING THE SPLITS: Seven Labour MPs RESIGN And Become Independent

The long anticipated split in the Labour Party has happened.

Announcing her decision to quit, Luciana Berger MP told the gathered media that the Party was “institutionally anti-semitic.” Chris Leslie, MP for Nottingham East and another rebel, said that this was a “very difficult decision” but that the Party has changed from the one he joined and had been hijacked by the “machine politics of the hard-left”.

He continued:

In all conscience we cannot knock on doors and campaign for Jeremy Corbyn to be Prime Minister

Mr Corbyn is, Leslie said, a “danger to national security”. Leslie went onto cite Labours “betrayal” over Brexit over its refusal to campaign for a Peoples Vote.

Angela Smith MP said she was “born to a Labour family”. What working class people want, she said, was a “fair crack of the whip”, not to be “patronised by left-wing intellectuals” who think poverty is a “state of grace”.

The split follows warnings from senior Labour figures that a split will keep Labour out of power for up to a decade.
