United Kingdom government to resume cross-party Brexit talks next week

The Tories would only win 28 per cent of the vote if a general election were held tomorrow, with Labour earning 32 per cent of votes, according to a YouGov poll for The Times.

Nigel Farage, the leader of the new Brexit Party, says his anti-EU group will mirror UKIP on policies, but when it comes to personnel there will be a "vast difference", with no far-right faction.

A poll by Opinium covered in the Observer said that support for Tories had fallen to 29 percent, down six percentage points compared to a fortnight ago.

Meanwhile, an analysis of various polls by the Sunday Telegraph showed that the Tories would lose almost 60 seats in a potential snap election that could come over May's failure to deliver on Brexit.

The British government's talks with the opposition Labour party on a Brexit compromise will continue, but will not "drag out" for months, Cabinet Office minister David Lidington told the BBC on Sunday.

"This party is not here just to fight the European elections".




The Telegraph commented that May now faces mounting calls by MPs and senior grassroots figures to name a date for her departure as it appeared Britain would have to participate next month in elections to the European Parliament.

Jeremy Hunt has insisted the contest to succeed Theresa May as Conservative party leader must wait until after the Brexit withdrawal agreement has been voted through by parliament.

Eurosceptic Iain Duncan Smith, a former Conservative Party leader, said May should be ready to quit in June.

"What the prime minister has to do now is aim everything towards departure before the euros (European elections) which would then allow her to step away having done what she said she would do - get the United Kingdom out of the European Union one way or the other", he told Sky News.

Farage is hoping to attract support from disgruntled pro-Brexit Tories, unhappy with Prime Minister Theresa May delaying the UK's exit from the European Union.

Labour is pushing for a deal that keeps Britain allied to the EU's customs union and single market, but the current deal agreed by May would see Britain leaving both.
