Three pro-EU lawmakers from Britain's governing Conservatives quit over the "disastrous handling of Brexit" on Wednesday, in a blow to Prime Minister Theresa May's attempts to unite her party around plans to leave the European Union.
She said: "We have seen in the past that setbacks like this can cause damage, we now need to come together because a Labour government is the best thing for Aberdeen and the United Kingdom".
Derek Hatton, the former deputy leader of Liverpool City Council, has been readmitted to the Labour Party over 30 years after he was expelled from the party for being a member of the Militant tendency.
Among potential runaway Conservatives MPs are Anna Soubry, Sarah Wollaston, Nick Boles and Heidi Allen.
However, Prof Rob Ford, an academic and Labour expert at the University of Manchester, said that the Tories would be wise to remember that the new independent group could also steal voted from their party: "If Tories are saying "ha ha" to Labour about the Independent Group, then it doesn't strike me that they've thought very deeply about the possible consequences", he said.

They complained that the party was now being controlled by the hard-right, euroskeptic European Research Group (ERG) and by Northern Ireland's socially conservative Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), which is propping up May's minority government.
"While I respect her personal decision - and it can not have been easy - I'm disappointed because I've personally found the Conservatives to be a broad church".
She said there are two ways to stop a no-deal Brexit - supporting her deal or revoking Article 50 - and pressed Mr Corbyn to tell the Commons what his preferred policy is.
Mr Leslie said: 'We're not joining the Liberal Democrats.
"They were elected to carry out those policies, they chose to go somewhere else and I regret that because I want our party to be strong".
The party's disdain for the Jewish community's concerns over the antisemitism scandals that continue to plague its rank and file "has rotted Labour's moral core", Ryan asserted. "I am saddened by this decision - these are people who have given dedicated service to our party over many years, and I thank them for it", she said.
