    They are citing poor handling of Brexit.

    They are joining the revealed right wingers who have defected from the Labour party.

    So that's down to rampant antisemitism in the Tory party perhaps?

    Perhaps weak leadership from the prime minister Theresa May?

    Ask them, if they haven't already declared why.

    The three who have left the Conservatives have not joined the TIG. They have stated they will sit "alongside" it. Their beef is about Brexit. Their resignation letter states that they will continue to vote with the government on other key matters and gives examples of the economy, national security and the improvement of welfare services.

    According to R4 this afternoon, it's because ERG aka UkipLite have taken over the Tory party.
