98. No way back for defecting MPs as all 11 fail in bid to win re-election

Each of the MPs who defected from Labour or the Conservatives this year has failed to be re-elected.

Most of the 11 politicians - all ardent Remainers - who quit the two main parties in 2019 were beaten by substantial margins.

The closest any came to re-entering the House of Commons under a different banner was Chuka Umunna, one of the original six Labour MPs who quit to form The Independent Group in February.

Standing for the Liberal Democrats, he came second in Cities of London and Westminster - having previously represented Streatham - 3,953 behind the Conservative victor.

Not surprising...
