Today's news about Change UK losing six of its 11 members calls for a Monty Python Life of Gavin sketch:
HEIDI: Listen. If you wanted to join the The Independent Group you'd have to really hate the Brexiteers.
GAVIN: I do!
HEIDI: Oh, yeah? How much?
GAVIN: A lot!
HEIDI: Right. You're in. Listen. The only people we hate more than the Brexiteers are the effing Change UK.
ANNA: (Hic) Splitters.
SARAH: And Change Now.
MIKE: Yeah. Oh, yeah. Splitters. Splitters...
ANNA: (Hic) And the Tiggers' Front of Change UK.
MIKE.: Yeah. Splitters. Splitters...
CHRIS: The Tiggers' Front of Change UK. Splitters.
HEIDI: We're The Tiggers' Front of Change UK!
LUCIANA: Oh, I thought we were The Independent Group.
HEIDI: The Independent Group! C-huh.
JOAN: Whatever happened to the Chuka Umunna Independent Change UK Now Group?
CHUKA: I'm over here.
Of course, all I really care about here is where ex-BBC face Gavin Esler ends up? I'm guessing in either the Lib Dems or acting as independent peer Jenny Tonge's butler.
