Rebel British MPs take up seats in parliament

A party source said they would now share whipping information and party resources where possible.

Because of that, my view is he's not fit for the office he's in now, and I don't think he's fit to be prime minister of this country.

Former Labour parliamentarian Joan Ryan (far left), who resigned from the party over antisemitism, pictured with the three Conservative MPs with whom she joined the centrist "Independent Group" in the British Parliament. She said people's livelihoods and jobs are now in the "hands" of members of Parliament and it's up to them to back her deal if they want to avoid crashing out without one.

The Labour leader's tone has been markedly less conciliatory than that of his close ally John McDonnell, who called for a "listening exercise" across the party.

He said he would not be able to stay in the Conservative Party if it "went completely off the rails" and backed leaving the European Union without a negotiated agreement.

The divisive issue of Brexit has caused political turmoil for British lawmakers, wrestling with their loyalties to their parties and personal views on the rights and wrongs of the United Kingdom leaving the EU.

A Labour party spokesperson said: "We have become aware of attempts to access personal data held on the party's systems by individuals who are not authorised to do so".

An eighth Labour MP has quit the party to join an independent grouping in parliament.

Ryan, a lawmaker for Enfield North and the chair of Labour Friends of Israel (LFI), said in her resignation letter the Labour Party has become "infected with the scourge of anti-Jewish racism".

That is despite him having a fractious relationship with Jeremy Corbyn, including labelling the leadership a "destructive combination of incompetence, deceit and menace" and being named in a published list of Labour MPs who were accused by the party leader of "abusing" him.

It adds: "There will be times when we will support the Government, for example, on measures to strengthen our economy, security and improve our public services".

The fledgling coalition started Monday, after seven parliamentarians resigned from the country's main opposition Labour Party.

Many Labour lawmakers "have been unhappy with the party's direction under leader Jeremy Corbyn, a veteran socialist who took charge in 2015 with strong grass-roots backing", the Bee added.

"We will fight those anti-Semites, we will deal with those bullies, we will bring half a million Labour Party members together and we will go out on the doorsteps and try to make this party electable".

The Liberal Democrats, an existing party with 11 MPs that claims the centre ground of British politics, could take advantage of the latest resignations - or find itself being squeezed.

The compromise, named after Tory MP Kit Malthouse, and championed by cross-factional MPs including Eurosceptic Steve Baker and soft Brexiter Nicky Morgan, may have seen the prime minister win the support of the European Research Group, led by Jacob Rees-Mogg - Rees-Mogg has previously given his full support to Malthouse. We've seen this exchange before, more than once, but now 29th March is just over a month away. They want to crush people like us trying to change things for this country.

Work and Pensions Secretary Amber Rudd said it was a "great shame to have lost the commitment and undeniable talent" of the three MPs.

Bale said: "I don't think it will prosper unless more MPs follow, but those who might be tempted both in the Labour and Conservative ranks will be watching both leaders' reactions to this - particularly when it comes to Brexit".
