UK's May seeks Brexit deal amid mounting pressure to quit

The news came after the Government's official acceptance that it can not get its Brexit deal through Parliament in time to avoid European elections on May 23. The UK will vote to send 73 MEPs back to the European Parliament in just over two weeks' time.

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has said today that all sides in the cross-party Brexit talks between the Government and Labour need to be willing to compromise.

Talks with Labour, which has pledged conditional support for a second referendum, are due to resume on Tuesday and May's ministers have spent recent days talking up the prospect of a swift deal.

2 in May's government, said "regrettably" it was no longer possible to get Brexit finished before the elections, which are being held across the European Union from May 23-26.

So talks between government and Labour will fail.

"The Government needs to move on its red lines and we expect to make compromises, but without a government that's willing to compromise, it's hard to see how any agreement can be reached, and I think the Government is aware of that".

Speculation is now increasing that the United Kingdom might be facing an inevitable second referendum.

Both the Tories and Labour are under huge pressure after losing seats in last week's local elections.

Incredibly, however, the "resilient" incumbent may not bow to pressure and step aside even in the face of this, with reports indicating that her allies understood to be threatening to take MPs to court to try and stop them from ousting her.

Meanwhile, British Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to have discussions with the chairman of the 1922 Committee of Tory backbenchers as calls increase for her to set a firm resignation date.

Conservative Brexit supporters might flock to the newly launched Brexit Party of former UKIP leader Nigel Farage.

The point is that Labour's main criticism of Theresa May's Brexit plan is that it is "blind", that it makes gives no promises or commitments about the UK's future relationship with the EU.

Nevertheless John McDonnell, the shadow chancellor, said on Friday that any customs union would need to be permanent and warned No 10 that "to get any deal over the line you've got to recognise there will be a large number of MPs in parliament who actually do support a public vote".

"I want to look whatever deal is come to between the parties and I know this is a crucial week".
