Backbench MP Luciana Berger refused to rule out leaving Labour to join another party on ITV’s Peston last night.
Peston: “You’ve been associated with a breakaway party. True?”
Berger: “I think what the poll highlights is that there’s a disaffection with the lack of leadership we’re seeing on all sides, you know, politics at the moment isn’t working.” […]
Peston: “People will hear that you haven’t denied that there are circumstances – if Corbyn gets it wrong for you on Brexit – that you would leave the party.”
Berger: “I’m focussed on Brexit, that’s my responsibility as a constituency MP.”
Peston: “So you might?”
Berger: “My focus very much is… There’s many people that have many different challenges, not just Brexit, in terms of seeing leadership from all the main political parties.”
