Pro-EU party launches election campaign as MPs return from break

Recent polls revealed the Conservative Party was losing support to Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party

The government and opposition Labour Party were set to resume Brexit talks on Tuesday as MPs returned from the Easter break. The list includes Rachel Johnson, the sister of Britain's ex-foreign secretary and arch-Brexiteer, Boris Johnson. I've joined the Remain alliance to stop Brexit, fix Britain, and move on to reform the EU.

"I think she is a formidable force and I believe that the government has mismanaged that completely", Mr Smith told talkRADIO's Julia Hartley-Brewer.

NIGEL FARAGE hailed the launch of his new Brexit Party as an "incredible success" before welcoming former Conservative MP Ann Widdecombe to the ranks.

Writing in the Daily Express, she said: I am standing for the Brexit Party in order that I may campaign vigorously and convince my fellow voters that this time it is imperative to fire a very loud warning shot across the bows of the parties they would normally support.

The other candidates unveiled were Lance Forman, a strongly pro-Brexit businessman who heads a family fish company; James Glancy, an ex-soldier who is now an environmental activist; Matthew Patten, a charity executive; and Christina Jordan, a former nurse described by the party as a community leader.

In a live phone-in on LBC last September, Lord Adonis said: "If you are a Brexiter, I hope you won't vote for the Labour Party, because the Labour Party is moving increasingly against Brexit".




British Prime Minister Theresa May survived the latest bid on Wednesday night to see her ousted from 10 Downing Street.

On Monday, it emerged May could face an unprecedented vote of confidence in her leadership after dozens of local Conservative association chiefs signed a petition in support of a poll.

May survived a vote of confidence by her own MPs in December and under party rules can not be challenged again for a year.

They called for an extraordinary general meeting of the National Conservative Convention to discuss the Prime Minister's leadership of the party, The Telegraph reported.

Ahead of the meeting, committee chairman Graham Brady met privately with the prime minister.

But grassroots discontent could increase pressure on the 1922 Committee to find a way of forcibly removing her from office.
