Government Brexit talks with Labour face deadline

Theresa May’s party slumps to fifth place in opinion poll as pressure mounts for her to step down

The Conservatives and the Labour Party were also given a drubbing in local council elections this month.

Deputy leader Jo Swinson said Labour had a chance to stop the United Kingdom leaving the European Union but was instead "negotiating to try to make Brexit happen".

Chancellor Philip Hammond is said to be among those who have lost faith with the plan to strike a cross-party deal, while education secretary Damian Hinds expressed support for finding a "stable majority" by allowing MPs to vote on different options. The Brexit Party led both polls comfortably. The poll also revealed that the United Kingdom opposition Labour Party was expected to receive 16 percent of the vote, while the Conservative Party only came fifth with 10 percent of support. "We have been betrayed not just by the Conservatives; Labour has done the same thing too". They have literally denied our existence from day one, and when we get on to a major interview they don't want to talk about this campaign, they don't want to talk about our candidates, they don't want to challenge Brexit and the way in which we want to do it. "For some people this is the ultimate protest vote", he said.

The Prime Minister's spokesman said Theresa May was "focused on delivering the result of the first referendum".

Tyrion even points that out to her early on when she refuses to even think about sparing the innocent in King's Landing. But she downplayed the error, saying, "If that's the worst thing they're finding, then we're in good shape".

Anger at the Brexit morass is fueling support for smaller parties ahead of a European Parliament election next week.

The Brexit deadline was subsequently moved to October 31 with London obliged to participate in the European Parliament elections if the deal is not passed by May 23.

Despite the warnings from the Labour camp, Downing Street remained firm in its opposition to a second referendum on Monday.

"What she (May) is working to do is to get a deal passed as soon as possible", he said.

He later wrote in Twitter that in a choice between a no deal exit or staying in the European Union, he would vote to leave without agreement.

Enthusiasm in Britain for European Parliamentary elections has traditionally not run high: In 2014, the turnout in the United Kingdom was just 36 per cent.

Called a "confirmatory referendum", Labour's shadow Brexit secretary Keir Starmer said unless it is part of any consensus reached in the cross-party talks, at least 150 of his party MPs would vote against it. Both the Conservative and Labour Party faced heavy losses in the May 2 elections in England and Northern Ireland, as smaller parties, including the Greens and Liberal Democrats, made gains, while the U.K. Independence Party (though suffering net losses overall) made some gains in areas that had voted heavily to leave. Corbyn's aides say he's trying to ensure the support of the third of Labour supporters who favor Brexit.
