Eighth lawmaker jumps ship in crisis for UK Labour party



An eighth Labour MP quit the party on Wednesday in protest against leader Jeremy Corbyn , joining a mounting rebellion sparked by rows over anti -Semitism and Brexit .

Joan Ryan told BBC radio that Corbyn had “ introduced or allowed to happen in our party this scourge of anti – Semitism .

It has completely infected the party ” .
“ The other huge problem is that I think Jeremy Corbyn is aiding and abetting a hard Brexit , ” she said .
Seven MPs broke with the opposition party on Monday in the biggest split in British politics since 1981 .

They will sit as an independent group in parliament for now and have announced plans for a new centrist party .

Ryan said there was a “large number” of Labour MPs who were unhappy with the leadership and that she hoped other party members would join the new Independent Group .

The Sun and ITV reported that up to three Conservative MPs are considering joining the group in what would be a radical shift in Britain’ s political landscape .

Britain ’ s two main parties are badly divided over Brexit and the tensions have come to a head as the March 29 deadline for the country ’ s departure from the bloc looms .

Labour has also been plagued by claims of anti – Semitism ever since Corbyn , a lifelong eurosceptic and supporter of anti – Israel groups , became its leader in 2015 .
