Labour anti-Semitism claims: Jewish group backs Corbyn

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

An eighth Labour lawmaker quit the party for the Independent Group a day later.

And she added: "Jeremy Corbyn has enabled and allowed a toxic culture to develop in too many parts of the Labour Party".

Cllr Smith said: "We welcome Heidi's decision to leave a party with which she has seemed increasingly uncomfortable".

The tweet, now deleted, stated: "Jewish people with any sense of humanity need to start speaking out publicly against the ruthless murdering being carried out by Israel", Sky News reported.

The MPs said they were leaving the party over leader Jeremy Corbyn's support for Brexit and his failure to stamp out anti-Semitism.

One of the seven lawmakers, Chuka Umunna, a leading campaigner for a second referendum, said on Tuesday that he now wanted to establish a new centrist political party by the end of the year at the latest. Corbyn has come under fire by some party members for not doing enough to oppose Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May's plans for leaving the European Union and for not pushing hard enough for a second referendum.

Labour's Jo Rust said she was "disappointed" by the departure of her party's former MPs and said it was a matter for the constituency parties as to whether by-elections should be sought.

"This proposed reform has the dramatic potential to empower citizens and will be one of many measures the Labour Party is planning to consult on and announce that will change the way politics in this country is done". However, several lawmakers have reportedly urged the party to do more.

'I don't mean this in a cruel way but I think she is absolutely delusional about the situation that she and the country is in'. I have no doubt the seven MPs have other grave concerns about today's Labour Party, such as its baked-in problem with anti-semitism, and its move to the far left on many issues, but what truly binds them is an unwillingness to accept the 2016 referendum result and belief it must be overturned.

They wrote: "Brexit has redefined the Conservative Party - undoing all the efforts to modernise it".

But Ms Soubry insisted: 'My views haven't changed, the Conservative party has changed.

The group of 11 newly independent lawmakers has no policy platform, political organization or leader, and it will operate in an electoral system that makes it nearly impossible for new parties to break through.

Anna Soubry has launched a furious personal attack on Theresa May, accusing her of being "delusional" and of 'having a problem with immigration'.

The Independent Group's arrival in the Commons attracted widespread attention on social media as they posed for selfies and settled in.

"I am determined that under my leadership the Conservative Party will always offer the decent, moderate and patriotic politics that the people of this country deserve".

Recent polling indicates that some 57 percent would now prefer a full, No Deal Brexit to one on the terms negotiated by Theresa May, on 23 percent, or remaining in the European Union, on a paltry 15 percent.
