Britain ‘will have to take part’ in European Parliament elections - minister

After weeks of cross-party talks, the government's negotiating team is expected to present Labour with a formal offer on the key issue of Britain's customs relationship with the European Union after Brexit.

Setting out her stall to be leader post-Theresa May, Leadsom said: "I've always felt that no-deal would not be ideal for the country".

"With Labour's trust in the Tories hurt by leaks to the Sunday papers, and Theresa May under pressure to clarify her resignation date, there appears to be too much party politics at play to actually reach a compromise palatable to both sides", he said.

Nearly three years since Britain voted to leave the European Union, there is little clarity about how, when or even if Brexit will happen.

Speaking after a meeting of Conservative backbenchers, top Tory Sir Graham Brady said: "I'm sure that when we meet with her, that will be the question that needs to be resolved to people's satisfaction".

He said that he had not yet decided which party he will vote for, pointing to the "problem" of the divided nature of the anti-Brexit parties, which include the Lib Dems, Greens and newly formed group Change UK.

Mr Cameron angered fellow European Union leaders by promising a referendum on Britain's membership of the bloc in a bid to prevent voters deserting his ruling Conservatives for the UK Independence Party. "[I am] disgusted at the fact that almost three years on and we still haven't left the European Union".

Mr Burt told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "I think the Prime Minister is well aware of the pressures upon her, but she is very determined to get the first stage of Brexit agreed and I think that's the right thing to do".

A revolt against Mrs May could become more likely if talks with Labour result in a Brexit compromise which would be unacceptable to Tory Eurosceptics. There is a swell of feeling in the aftermath, even though she has refused again to set a firmer date for her departure, that somehow, the final days of her leadership might soon be upon us, with a new leader installed before the summer.

"In terms of legitimacy, if the Brexit Party wins this election arguing for a WTO Brexit, and we get significant support and we win, I think we will have democratic legitimacy to have a say in how we proceed from here", said Farage at a press conference on Tuesday.

An instance is the case of Andrew Sharpe, chairman of the grassroots National Conservative Convention who will reveal an Extraordinary General Meeting where an unprecedented confidence vote in the Prime Minister will be decided upon by 800 members on June 15, 2019.

Conversely, Labour supporters, along with many parliamentarians will not back a deal with the Tories unless it is accompanied by a confirmatory referendum, an idea that has not had sufficient support in Parliament so far.

However, despite a growing bitterness over the ongoing talks between British Conservatives and Labors, McDonnell had added that the talks would resume at the later part of this week and had a deal been on the cards, it had to be concluded quickly.

"We are fighting the European elections here in the U.K. Why?"
