After 4 decades, I have made the terribly difficult decision to resign from the Labour Party. It is the greatest honour of my life to represent the people of #EnfieldNorth. I will continue to represent and speak up for them as a member of the @TheIndGroup of MPs #ChangePolitics pic.twitter.com/W8UEsJG7Rh— Joan Ryan MP (@joanryanEnfield) February 19, 2019

EIGHTH MP JOINS INDEPENDENT GROUP
Joan Ryan, MP for Enfield North, has tonight become the eighth MP to resign the Labour whip and join up with the Independent Group. Like the existing Gang of Seven, Ryan is a Remainer. She has also been on the receiving end of a Momentum-sponsored vote of no confidence (she lost). Perhaps no coincidence that Ryan is/was the chair of Labour Friends of Israel.
