Ex-UKIP leader Nigel Farage launches Brexit Party

Ex-UKIP leader Nigel Farage launches Brexit Party

Britain's Minister for the Cabinet Office David Lidington leaves the Houses of Parliament in London, Britain April 3, 2019.

The Government has said attempts to find a Brexit compromise with Labour will continue during Parliament's Easter recess, despite no sign of movement on either side's "red lines".

A Labour source said: 'Our MEPs are all pro-Brussels and do not want to fight alongside anti-Brussels Labour candidates because they say it will show the leadership is facing both ways.

"We've got to deliver the outcome of the referendum. but, the Conservative Party has got to remain a broad church, a national party, and it's got to be talking about things that matter to people in their everyday lives: housing, health service, living standards". The Prime Minister failed to get her Withdrawal Agreement through the House of Commons on three separate occasions and has also now requested two separate delays to Britain's exit date from the European Union, with the most recent extension set to last until October 31st unless a deal can be agreed before then.

The Sunday Telegraph says an analysis of polls suggests Mr Corbyn is heading for No10 after Theresa May failed to deliver on her promise to take Britain out of the European Union by March 29.

"I don't think this question can be allowed to drag out for much longer, I think the public rightly wants politicians to get on and deal with it".

Steve Murrells, chief executive of retailer Co-op group, told the BBC the government had "kicked the can down the road" on Brexit, but that his firm would continue to plan for the worst-case scenario of leaving without a deal.

May has come under fire from MPs including former leader Iain Duncan Smith following her decision to agree an extension that would result in the United Kingdom taking part in European elections next month.

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

The event's posting on ticket retail website Eventbrite said Mr Farage will be joined by other MEP candidates ahead of the European Parliamentary elections on May 23.

Odds are now at 4/11 for Labour's European election manifesto not to include a commitment to a second EU referendum, according to bookies Ladbrokes.
