SEVEN Labour MPs were today hit with sickening abuse by far-left activists and trolls furious with them for quitting the party in protest at Jeremy Corbyn. Luciana Berger, Chuka Umunna and five others were attacked for leaving a Labour party they say has been infested by anti-Semitism and radical bullies. The seven splitters were piled with abuse online They said they couldn’t be a part of it anymore thanks to Mr Corbyn’s leadership, leftie views on defence, and failure to stamp out anti-Semitism and far-left intimidation. And as if to prove their point, as soon as they announced their departure, they were bombarded with sickening abuse. Ex-MP George Galloway said Luciana Berger, who is Jewish and has been subject to reams of anti-Semitic abuse, had been “rolling out the foul, poisonous lie that the Labour party and Jeremy Corbyn and those around him, she said, are anti-Semitic.” He said in a live video: “That’s what it’s about for those seven, anti-Semitism. Their concern is not anti-Semitism but support for the Palestinian people.” The Young Labour’s Twitter account posted: “Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer, we’ll keep the red flag flying here.” Some on Facebook said the quitters were “attacking Corbyn’s ability to free Palestine” and said they “cannot serve two masters” – common tropes used against Jewish people. Another said they mentioned “fake anti-Semitism” as reasons for leaving. One said Luciana should go back to ‘Zionist Israel’ A Jeremy Cprbyn supporters group was filled with abuse of the MPs One said they were liars and cowards Plenty of abuse spilled out onto social media One called the MPs ‘c**ts’   One said ‘off you f**k’   Online activists showed exactly why the MPs felt they had to leave the party One person tweeted her directly to say ‘f**k off bitch’   Some suggested the group would be funded by Israel Others said Chuka was a disgrace and an Uncle Tom – a racist slur Activists labelled them as traitors Some said they were glad to see the back of them Some showed their anger with the group for leaving the party Activists online said they were ‘opportunists’ Gavin Shuker received abuse on his Facebook page One person said they were just “opportunitists leaving because they cannot get their own way and would rather see the Conservative party get elected”. Labour MPs and union bosses reacted with sadness and frustration at today’s news. Mr Corbyn said earlier he was “disappointed that these MPs have felt unable to continue to work together for the Labour policies that inspired millions at the last election.” Lisa Nandy MP said: “This is an awful day for the Labour Party and everyone who needs us” and Lucy Powell said she was “sad and disappointed” that some colleagues had quit. But Shadow Health boss Jonathan Ashworth said the move would only “help the Tories stay in power”. I am disappointed that these MPs have felt unable to continue to work together for the Labour policies that inspired millions at the last election and saw us increase our vote by the largest share since 1945. — Jeremy Corbyn (@jeremycorbyn) February 18, 2019 The 'Independent' Group isn’t just an attack on Jeremy's policies For the Many, Not the Few. It's a direct attack on the Labour Party. Chuka's vision for a coalition with Tories and Lib Dems is not the solution. A radical Labour government is. We'll keep fighting for that. ✊🌹 — Richard Burgon MP (@RichardBurgon) February 18, 2019 Labour MP Lloyd Russell-Moyal said his colleagues were cowards This morning is of major concern to everyone concerned about technological employment. Seven Labour MPs appear to have automated de-selection. — Aaron Bastani (@AaronBastani) February 18, 2019 [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN POLITICS” posts_category=”318″ posts_number=”12″ query_type=”popular” /] The MPs involved in the split are Luciana Berger, Chris Leslie, Angela Smith, Chuka Umunna, Mike Gapes, Ann Coffey and Gavin Shuker. They are forming a new grouping in the House of Commons called “The Independent Group” – but fell short of creating a whole new political party. Ms Berger, the Jewish MP who has faced a torrent of abuse from far-left activists, said: “I cannot remain in a party that I have today come to the sickening conclusion is institutionally anti-Semitic.” Mr Leslie, the former Shadow Chancellor, added: “We can no longer knock on doors and support a government led by Jeremy Corbyn and the team around him.” He said: “This has not been an easy decision for any of us. We have all been Labour MPs for years. But the Labour party we joined is no longer today’s Labour party.” [bc_video video_id=”6003407932001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”John McDonnell demands Labour splitters leave their posts and have another election”] We pay for your stories!

Chuka Umunna – who pines for the bankrupt and discredited politics of a decade ago and cosies up to Tories – said in his ‘launch’ speech this morning that his quitters’ group was for those ‘sick and tired of politics as usual… guess what so are we‘. Luciana Berger went on to add jaw-dropping crassness, […]
