LONDON Feb 19: Labour was rocked by a historic split today as seven MPs walked out with savage criticisms of Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership and hinting at plans for a brand new political party.

The seven, including leading modernisers Chuka Umunna, Luciana Berger and Chris Leslie, will sit as The Independent Group and are all fierce anti-Brexit campaigners.

Mr Umunna gave a strong signal that they aim to form a new centre party in future, saying: “The established parties are not up to this challenge… they have failed to fulfil their duties with the competence the public deserves.”

And he urged MPs from other parties to come on board saying: “It’s time we dumped this country’s old-fashioned politics…
