The 14 best jokes and memes as three Tory MPs quit to join the Independent Group

It's been another helter-skelter day in Westminster, as three more MPs have jumped ship and joined the new rebel Independent Group.

MPs Anna Soubry, Sarah Wollaston and Heidi Allen switched from the Conservatives to join the new party, which was introduced to the Commons on Monday after seven Labour MPs defected.

The trio, which are all pro-EU, have cited Brexit and Theresa May's handling of the negotiations for switching allegiances, with Allen citing that May had been bullied by Jacob Rees-Mogg's European Research Group.

Soubry, Allen and Wollaston were joined by the former Labour MP Joan Allen, who quit the party last night to join the Independent Group, which now has 11 MPs.

With the group now having taken their seats in the Commons, a discussion about the future of British politics and what this means for Brexit has begun to happen and, as you can imagine, people have a lot to say.

However, this isn't what you've come here for, is it? No, you want memes and jokes - and here are 14 of the best from another chaotic day in British politics.

We'll start with SNP MP Mhairi Black and her face in this picture, which basically tells you all you need to know

Soubry, Allen and Wollaston who all resigned an hour before PMQs, were probably having a great time.

Next up is the great picture of diversity in the Conservative Party.

What sort of formation would this new 11 form?

We wouldn't fancy their chances against Alan Sugar.

Nicola Sturgeon didn't hold anything back.

Anna Soubry's speech also raised a few eyebrows.

There was more confusion over Jeremy Corbyn's statements.

Amazingly, none of this was mentioned during PMQs, which is all so very British.

Can you imagine if Theresa May returned to her pre-2016 referendum self?

Might as well role this one out again, for old times sake.

Don't worry Britain, everything will be fine (possibly).
