  • The Independent Group for Change, also known as Change UK, was a centrist, pro-European Union political party, founded in February 2019 and dissolved ten months later, shortly after all its MPs lost their seats in the 2019 general election. Its principal policy was support for a second referendum on European Union membership, in which it would campaign to remain in the EU. On economic issues it expressed a commitment to the social market economy. It was led at its dissolution by the former Conservative Party MP Anna Soubry. In February 2019, seven MPs resigned from the Labour Party to sit as The Independent Group. They were dissatisfied by Labour's leftward political direction under Jeremy Corbyn's leadership, its approach to Brexit, and its handling of allegations of antisemitism within the party. They were soon joined by four more MPs, including three from the governing Conservative Party who disliked their party's approach to Brexit and its perceived move rightward. That April the group registered as a political party so as to compete in the May 2019 European Parliament election under the name Change UK – The Independent Group. Following the party's failure to secure any seats in that election, six of its eleven MPs left the party. Four of the six formed "The Independents" grouping and two defected to the Liberal Democrats. Later, three of the "Independents" also joined the Liberal Democrats. Following a legal dispute with petition website Change.org, in June the party adopted the name The Independent Group for Change. Three of the party's MPs stood for re-election in the December 2019 general election. None of them were re-elected, each losing to candidates from their former parties. On 19 December 2019, Soubry announced the party's dissolution. (en)

  • The Independent Group for Change, also known as Change UK, was a centrist, pro-European Union political party, founded in February 2019 and dissolved ten months later, shortly after all its MPs lost their seats in the 2019 general election. Its principal policy was support for a second referendum on European Union membership, in which it would campaign to remain in the EU. On economic issues it expressed a commitment to the social market economy. It was led at its dissolution by the former Conservative Party MP Anna Soubry. (en)
