Several of the new Independent Group MP’s are threatening to break away from the newly formed Independent Group.
The inevitable split appears to have come as the party has grown in size over the week, leaving many members marginalized and relegated to the side-lines.
As members wrestle for leadership positions, both the left and the right of the new group believe that their needs are being overlooked.
‘I shall be forming the Independent Independent Group,’ threatened Chuka Umunna.
‘The Independent Group is very much yesterday’s politics,’ added Chuka.
