"In all conscience, we can no longer knock on doors and support a government led by Jeremy Corbyn or the team around him".

Peter Topping, leader of the Conservatives in South Cambridgeshire, said he respects Mrs Allen's "personal decision" to quit the party.

"Unless they vote against the party on a confidence motion, we have to allow a range of thinking on Brexit".

The tweet, now deleted, stated: "Jewish people with any sense of humanity need to start speaking out publicly against the ruthless murdering being carried out by Israel", Sky News reported.

Earlier Wednesday, an eighth MP quit the Labour Party in protest against its veteran socialist leader Jeremy Corbyn, joining the mounting internal rebellion sparked by rows over Brexit and anti-Semitism.

They noted that there was a wider dissatisfaction with the state of British politics, with both the Conservatives and Labour moving "to the fringes, leaving millions of people with no representation".

May said in a statement she was "saddened" by the resignations and thanked the MPs for their "dedicated service to our party over many years".

Mr Benyon said that Brexit had been dominating affairs and preventing other important issues, such as tackling climate change and the NHS, from being debated.

Social media users were quick to criticise Young Labour's response to Ryan quitting the party.

"They were elected to carry out those policies, they chose to go somewhere else and I regret that because I want our party to be strong, I want our party to be united around the policies that we have put forward".

Mrs May also attempted to play on splits within the Opposition - while ignoring resignations from her own party - as she claimed Labour heroes Clement Attlee and Aneurin Bevan would be "spinning in their grave" at what Mr Corbyn has "done to a once proud Labour Party".

Brexit supporter and MEP Steven Woolfe has criticised the newly formed Independent Group, pointing out the organisations "biggest problem".

Normally, when a party is registered and has fought in a general election, they are entitled to money from the House of Commons given to opposition parties (known as Short Money).

The three Tory defectors said that the "hard-line anti-EU awkward squad" had taken over the party, while Labour leavers said they could no longer tolerate anti-semitism and the "machine politics of the hard left" that had taken over the party. I'm very sad indeed that they left.

The Chancellor told LBC he'd welcome Anna Soubry back into the Conservatives.

"Please, come join us", she said, predicting that more ministers in May's Cabinet would soon resign their posts - if not their parties - over the prime minister's handing of Brexit. I know all the Conservative associations of the county well and can confirm that they remain moderate broad churches where all are welcomed who subscribe to core Conservative values and principles.

It comes after the Nottingham East MP and six others resigned from the Labour Party, citing differences over Brexit and differences with the leadership of the party.

But May said she and the government would press on and deliver the Brexit that the country voted for in a June 2016 referendum.
