Three MPs resign from UK Conservative party, join Independent Group

The first three walkouts from Theresa May’s ruling Conservative party came on Wednesday amid mounting disarray over her Brexit deal. Claiming that “the country deserves better,” the rebels joined the Independent Group in parliament, formed by eight Laborites who quit their party on Monday and Tuesday in protest of its “institutional anti-Semitism” and Brexit policy under Jeremy Corbyn.

    United by antipathy for democracy, its not a good foundation for the future, even if they’ve taken a good stand against Jew hated in Labour.

    How is resigning from May’s sell-out party which has not controlled her for more than two years, antipathy for democracy?

    By not controlliing her they enabled her to run down the clock and produce a deal that would be worse than staying in the EU as at present. She is doing this so that either Parliament reneges on Brexit altogether or accepts her terrible deal which would lock the UK into the EU for as long as the EU wished it to be.

    If anyone is anti-democratic it is May, who only at the last minute some week ago after 2,5 years allowed the MPs to contribute with ideas – far too late. These 3 MPs are leaving because they see that there is not going to be any good deal coming out of May and the 8 MPs who left Labour earlier are doing it because Corbyn is anti-Jew and dictatorial within the party.
    May’s handlers are the same people who got her to establish 100 sharia courts in the UK when she was Home Secretary. Go figure whose agenda she is furthering.
