Chuka Umunna, the Member of Parliament for Streatham and six others have left the Labour party to form an Independent Group.

The MP of Nigerian descent has always disagreed with the leader of his party, Jeremy Corbyn over his direction on Brexit.

Mr Umunna, a member of the extreme right wing faction of Labour UK has now decided to leave for a new party.

At the launch of the new party, the lawmaker noted that it is¬†time “we dumped this country’s old-fashioned politics and created an alternative that does justice to who we are today and gives this country a politics fit for the here and now – the 21st Century.”

The six other MPs who left Labour – Britain’s major opposition party are:¬†Luciana Berger, Chris Leslie, Angela Smith, Mike Gapes, Gavin Shuker and Ann Coffey.

This paper understands that Mr Umunna, who happens to be the ring leader of the pack no longer enjoys the full support of his constituency because of his constant antagonising of Mr Corbyn, who has won a leadership election twice since 2015.

DENISAURUS News has been in touch with Labour members in Tulse Hill, which is part of Mr Umunna’s constituency, who want him to step down.

According to a source, a plan is being put in place by a leading activist to recall the MP and cause a by-election in the area.
