The first thing that has to be said is that they are fooling no one by saying they are now seven independents who happen to have formed a group in parliament rather than creating a new party.

"We find it unconscionable that a Party once trusted on the economy, more than any other, is now recklessly marching the country to the cliff edge of no deal", the lawmakers wrote. No responsible government should knowingly and deliberately inflict the dire consequences of such a destructive exit on individuals, communities and businesses and put at risk the prospect of ending austerity.

"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". During those years, the Labour Party and the Liberal Party were vying to become the main opponent to the Conservatives.

Mr Palmer said: "It's regrettable that Heidi Allen has felt it necessary to resign from the Conservative Party and join the new Independent Group of MPs". It should be remembered that while Labour voters overall (including Labour voters in seats won by the other parties) were for remaining in the European Union, the majority of Labour voters in the seats they won were in favour of leaving. "The answer is no".

The Bracknell MP quit the Government over Brexit and has been the subject of speculation about his future. 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. They want to crush people like us trying to change things for this country. She added that she would continue "fighting for an open, inclusive and welcoming Young Labour".

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

Mrs May also attempted to play on splits within the Opposition - while ignoring resignations from her own party - as she claimed Labour heroes Clement Attlee and Aneurin Bevan would be "spinning in their grave" at what Mr Corbyn has "done to a once proud Labour Party".

Albert Finney honoured with celebrity tributes after death at 82
Finney played the lead in Ronald Neame's acclaimed 1970 Scrooge , winning the Golden Globe for Best Actor In A Musical / Comedy. One of his most recent roles included the portrayal of Kincade in the 2012 film Skyfall .


Greening, meanwhile, told the BBC she would not join the Independent group "for the moment" but warned that if her efforts to block a No Deal Brexit in Parliament were not successful, "then to my mind the party that I joined many years ago and that I felt matched my aspirations..."

May, like Corbyn, expressed disappointment by their announcement.

"He seemed broadly disinterested in Nottingham and that definitely has generated a view that well if he wants to go, that's up to him and I'm sure the Labour party will be able to find somebody far more enthusiastic and energetic about representing local people and local people's concerns". "Of course, the UK's membership of the European Union has been a source of disagreement both in our party and our country for a long time", May said. Ending that membership after four decades was never going to be easy.

In response, May said she was "saddened" by the decision.

Ms Soubry also revealed that ex-prime minister David Cameron had pleaded with her, Dr Wollaston and Heidi Allen to stay on the Conservative benches.

Ms Wollaston suggested a third of the Cabinet could walk out if Mrs May steers the country towards a no-deal Brexit. "Our party has always been able to contain different views on Europe". "There needs to be an alternative, so that's perfectly possible".

The Independent Group is yet to be registered as a political party.
