UK: Nigel Farage's Brexit Party leads European Union election poll

Perhaps even more troubling, polling for general election voting intentions shows the many people appear to plan on backing Mr Farage at in national as well as European elections - with the Brexit Party now outpointing the Conservatives in a ComRes poll.

"I don't see how a leader can go on so removed from the support base of the party membership".

"A reminder that through most of Q1 the Conservatives were polling just under 40%".

A survey carried out by Yougov shows that just 10 per cent of Londoners are planning to back the Tories in the vote on 23 May, leaving them behind the Lib Dems on 17 per cent and the Greens on 14 per cent.

May and Labour's Jeremy Corbyn are scheduled to hold more talks next week to try to find a Brexit compromise, but getting any deal through Parliament will be tough.

And Labour would take the scalps of Boris Johnson, Iain Duncan Smith and Sir Graham Brady, the chairman of the 1922 committee, with the Tories retaining support from less than half of those who voted for them in 2017.

Although Mr Drummond cautioned the European election in less than two weeks could be "bleeding into" and "inflating" the Westminster results, the level of support was still notable.

The two main parties, Labour and the Conservatives, continue to drop votes, with Labour falling five points and the Tories four in the last fortnight.

And the Telegraph, which has long backed the idea of a hard Brexit, published a letter from 600 assorted Conservatives from the shires in which they warn that if May can't deliver a clean departure from the European Union, members of Parliament should replace her or "risk disaster".

The Conservatives have slipped to a humiliating fifth place in London, according to a new opinion poll ahead of the European elections.

The Tories have dropped another three points to stagger into fourth place with 11% support.

Meanwhile, the former Labour Prime Minister Tony Blair said Labour supporters angered by the party's ambiguous position on Brexit should instead vote for an "unequivocal" Remain party.

The Liberal Democrats are in third place on 15%, closely behind Labour on 16%, but the big frontrunners remain the Brexit Party, with 34%.
