UK Brexit negotiator back in Brussels for last-minute talks

Leader of The Brexit Party Nigel Farage appears on The Andrew Marr Show

An Opinium Research poll last week predicted that the Tories will finish in fourth place with just 11 percent of the vote, behind the Liberal Democrats (12 percent), Labour Party (21 percent) and Farage's Brexit Party comfortably in front with 34 percent.

"No deal planning has never stopped", the spokesman said.

Others have hailed Mr Farage and his colleagues as the only party to deliver what they want. So Conservative voters are moving away en masse, particularly in the south, but also it was clear that the Labour party lost seats and didn't gain ground where the Conservatives were failing, and then in the north of England they too suffered due to their unclear view on Brexit.

"Westminster has betrayed your vote for Brexit", Farage said Tuesday, tweeting out a Brexit Party ad.

On May 23, British citizens and European and Commonwealth citizens resident in the United Kingdom will vote to select 73 candidates for the European Parliament; they will take up their seats in July for a five-year term.

"We can not ever allow again a great democratic exercise like this to be railroaded aside by career politicians of the Labour and Tory parties".

Meanwhile, senior Conservative MPs warned Prime Minister Theresa May against doing a deal with Labour, particularly over retaining a customs union with the EU after Britain leaves the bloc. May, while pledging to step down ahead of the next phase of Brexit negotiations, is yet to name a date.

The shadow chancellor said Labour had not seen enough movement from ministers, especially on the issue of a customs union with the EU, adding: "We're not near what we want".

He said: "The talks clearly aren't getting anywhere".

To try to break the impasse in parliament, May turned to the opposition Labour Party, led by veteran socialist Jeremy Corbyn, but after weeks of talks they have so far failed to reach an agreement.

"But the reality is that as long as a majority in the House of Commons is saying to the European Union we will not leave without your permission and we will not leave without a deal then the European Union has had no incentive".

The letter was also signed by Graham Brady, chairman of the Conservative Party's 1922 Committee, which represents the views of backbench MPs.

It is also implicit that the rebel group, made up of leadership contenders, would try tear up any soft Brexit agreement with Labour once Mrs May resigns.
