The morning of 18 February 2019 marked a change in the composition of the House of Commons. Over the next three days, 12 sitting MPs would leave the comforts of the two main political parties and form an independent parliamentary grouping. United in their frustration with their parties’ approaches to Brexit and their desire for a different kind of politics, these MPs went on to form a new political party, Change UK. This chapter provides an overview of the Change UK story and explains how its rise and fall demonstrates well the challenges facing small parties in the Commons.
