Seven lawmakers quit UK Labour Party citing Brexit 'betrayal', anti-SemitismIn a direct challenge to Corbyn, the seven centrist MPs said they were courting others from across parliament to join their group, saying “enough is enough” in keeping silent over their doubts about the Labour leader’s fitness for office.
