The Brexit Party is a Eurosceptic political party in the United Kingdom ( UK ). Established in 2019, it is led by Nigel Farage. The party has 29 Members of the European Parliament (MEPs)

Britain's breakaway anti-Brexit party, Change UK, imploded on Tuesday just weeks after its formation with the resignations of six of its 11 MPs.

The party was created by disillusioned lawmakers from the main Conservative and Labour parties, and promised to forge a new pro-European path in British politics.

But it failed to win any seats in last month's European Parliament elections -- gaining just three percent of the vote -- and was divided over how closely to work with other parties who want Britain to stay in the EU.

Leader Heidi Allen was among the MPs who quit, and was replaced by Anna Soubry, a fellow former Conservative known for her outspoken opposition to Brexit.

Soubry said she was "deeply disappointed" but said her party would keep working towards future elections.

"Now is not the time to walk away, but instead to roll up our sleeves and stand up for the sensible mainstream centre ground which is unrepresented in British politics today," she said in a statement.

Allen and fellow ex-Conservative Sarah Wollaston, and former Labour MPs Luciana Berger, Gavin Shuker, Angela Smith and Chuka Umunna will now sit as independents in parliament.

"We know the landscape will continue to shift within the political environment and have concluded that by returning to sit as independents, we will be best placed to work cross-party and respond flexibly," they said.

Nigel Farage's newly-formed Brexit Party topped the European polls and the pro-EU Liberal Democrats came second.

Allen had suggested supporters vote tactically to maximise the pro-European vote, a decision Soubry described afterwards as "bizarre".
