On 18 February 2019, Shuker and six other MPs – Chuka Umunna, Chris Leslie, Angela Smith, Mike Gapes, Luciana Berger, and Ann Coffey – quit Labour in protest at Jeremy Corbyn's leadership to form the Independent Group of MPs. The Independent Group cited disagreements over the handling of Brexit and mishandling of anti-Semitism within the Labour party as key reasons for leaving.
In June 2019, he left Change UK (The Independent Group) to sit as an independent MP. In July 2019, Shuker was a founding member of a looser grouping of MPs called The Independents. He stood as an independent candidate in the 2019 United Kingdom general election, but lost his seat, polling 9.3% of the vote and coming third.
On 6 September 2018, a meeting of the Luton South Constituency Labour Party passed a vote of no confidence in Shuker. Luton South CLP passed their motion with 33 votes in favour of the motion with five abstentions and only three voting to support the MP. After the vote, Shuker took to Twitter to declare "At a local Labour Party meeting last night a motion of no confidence in me was passed. It’s not part of any formal procedure, so it changes nothing about my role as Labour MP for Luton South".
Following the May 2015 general election, Shuker announced his intention to support Liz Kendall's campaign to be Labour leader.
In March 2014 under Shuker's chairmanship, the APPG on Prostitution and the Global Sex Trade published a new report on the legal state of prostitution in England and Wales. The result of a year-long consultation it was the first major cross-party report on the issue since the mid-1990s. The report called for a wholesale review of the existing legal settlement on prostitution, advocating consideration of a move towards the so-called 'Nordic model'. In the foreword to the APPG's report, Shuker wrote: "In short, we recommend a shift in the burden of criminality from those who are the most marginalised and vulnerable – to those that create the demand in the first place."
In the October 2013 reshuffle, he was shifted to the Shadow International Development team as a Shadow Minister of State. His brief covered policy on Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, in addition to responsibility for policy on climate change, inequality, violence against women and girls and the post-2015 SDG agenda. As part of his Shadow Ministerial role, Shuker has visited Palestine, Pakistan, El Salvador and the United Nations at Geneva and New York.
He was married to Lucie, whom he met at the University of Cambridge but announced in 2016 that they had divorced. They have a daughter, born 16 June 2013.
In March 2012, Shuker was one of three MPs who signed a letter sent to the Advertising Standards Authority asking it to reverse its decision to stop the Christian group "Healing on the Streets of Bath" from making explicit claims that prayer can heal. The letter called for the ASA to provide indisputable scientific evidence that such healing did not work.
In May 2010 he was elected in Luton South, with a majority of 2,329 votes (5.5%) over the Conservative candidate Nigel Huddleston, and with the journalist and broadcaster Esther Rantzen a distant fourth. In October 2010, he was appointed PPS to the Shadow Secretary of State for Justice, Sadiq Khan, and was also appointed to the transport select committee.
