Despite declaring that the Gang of Seven are "not the SDP", Chuka Umunna has revealed that he is hoping to have a party up and running by the end of this year.  If this comes to fruition it will dash Lib Dem hopes of incorporating the seven (and almost doubling Lib Dem Parliamentary numbers in the process).  More bad news for Vince Cable came with the news that three separate polls today had the 'Independent Group' outpolling the Lib Dems!  No wonder he wants Chuka and co to sign up.

Richard Madeley's final question to Chuka was whether he thought Corbyn was a Marxist - "I think so, yes" was his reply.  Watch the full interview below.
