What does The Independent Group mean for Brexit?
The eleven MPs who quit the Labour and Conservative party cited Brexit as one of the reasons for their departure. Ten out of the eleven who left want a people’s vote on Brexit. More MPs are believed to be wrestling with their consciences and considering leaving should their parties not change their Brexit stances, and soon. Jeremy Corbyn tentatively committed to backing a referendum amendment less than a week after The Independent Group (TIG, for short) was established.
