The 11 MP’s – eight from Labour and three Conservatives – who have declared themselves Independent in protest at their former parties have had their first policy meeting – and they celebrated by going out for a cheeky Nando’s.
A few of them shared the same snap of their outing, like this one from Luciana Berger.

Naturally, Twitter couldn’t resist having a few digs, and they were VERi-VERi funny.
There were comments about what they ordered – and what they might have ordered.
the independent group ranked on their chicken marinade at nandos
wollaston, allen- lemon and herb
coffey, leslie, ryan – mild
berger, shuker – medium
smith – funny tinge
soubry – plain
chuka – hot, but really prefers mild
gapes – extra hot

Angela Smith looks concerned that her meal has a funny tinge. Soubry doesn’t understand why she had to order at the till. No one is having hotter sauce than lemon and herb. https://t.co/lVqmw5IZQn

Anna Soubry ordering a salad and bottled water at Nandos has really shaken my confidence in this new movement. https://t.co/cuD1ei1aEk

I bet almost everyone at that table asked “do you have anything milder than lime and herb?” pic.twitter.com/mihjc1roRV

Some people marvelled – or cringed – at them pretending to be like normal people.
Siri, which restaurant will make us seem like normal people?
