Talks with Labour on Brexit are serious but hard, May tells ministers

Talks with Labour on Brexit are serious but hard, May tells ministers

Conservatives who have working on local election campaigns, and now hastily-arranged European elections, have found anger among voters about the failure to negotiate Brexit - and they are now openly calling for Mrs May to quit.

"This is no rebel alliance - this is the home of the remain alliance", she said.

Announcing her candidature to become an MEP representing the South West region for the Change UK - The Independent.

Senior officials in the prime minister's team believe the only realistic chance of a Brexit deal passing a vote in Parliament is if the opposition Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn decides - preferably this week - that settling the issue is in his interests.

Barry Lewis, who has led the Derbyshire authority since May 2017, said he had informed party chairman Brandon Lewis of the boycott of the European elections, which he said had received overwhelming support from his colleagues.

Boris Johnson's sister Rachel and ex-BBC star Gavin Esler today revealed they will stand for Britain's new remain party in the European elections next month.

It is just one of the calls that will be facing her from MPs, councillors and party workers after a hard two weeks of campaigning on the doorsteps of the country.

"We are not afraid to say it as clearly as that".

Mr Esler spoke at the launch and said of Nigel Farage and Jacob Rees-Mogg: "They claim to speak for the people - they do not". Esler told the audience before lashing out at Brexit campaigners, saying they "stole our patriotism, and I want it back".

Just 23.1 per cent said they were still loyal to the Conservatives.

Speaking at the launch of the party's campaign in Bristol, Mr Esler labelled the country's political make-up a "worldwide joke".

"I have never been seriously anxious about the future of our country but I am now".

"Our political system is a joke. We all know any version of Brexit will make us poorer as a country".

"We'll continue putting our case but quite honestly there's got to be change in the Government's approach", said the Labour leader.

Nigel Farage's new Brexit Party is already leading opinion polls, to the cost of the Tories.

CUK party cofounder Chuka Umunna, formerly of Labour, also detailed a number of defectors from the establishment Tory, Labour, and Liberal Democrat parties, such as former Liberal Democrat MEP Diana Wallis, former Labour minister Jon Owen Jones, and former Conservative MP Neil Carmichael.
