Failure to Deliver Brexit Led to Huge Frustration in The UK

"Pro-Remain parties the Greens, Liberal Democrats, and the newly-formed Change UK (CUK), previously known as The Independent Group (TIG), and other breakaway Europhile groups hope to use the European Parliament elections as a "soft referendum" to show support for remaining in the EU".

The prime minister is facing renewed calls from Tory Brexit supporters to step down as talks with Labour over the European Union withdrawal bill continue during the Easter recess.

While The Brexit Party (15 per cent) and UKIP (14 per cent) take third and fourth places respectively after Labour and the Conservatives, the research firm noted that "neither [Tories nor Labour] are far enough ahead for comfort" of the anti-establishment Eurosceptics.

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. "That process seems to have restarted and the Conservatives are beginning to suffer".

Less than a fortnight after the vote, which saw Britons choose to leave the bloc by a slim majority, Farage resigned as UKIP leader, saying he had "done his bit" to get the United Kingdom out of the EU.

The Observer newspaper in London reported Sunday that the latest Opinium poll suggested the Conservatives have dropped six points over the past fortnight, giving Labour a seven-point lead.

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.

Talks between the British government and the opposition Labour Party to find consensus over a Brexit plan are more constructive than people think, Britain's Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said on Monday.

They would discuss environmental standards and workers' rights after Brexit as well as the future security relationship with the EU.

"What we will want to move towards is to put before Parliament a set of options - with a system for making a choice and Parliament actually having to come to a preferred option rather than voting against everything", he said.

The minister for the cabinet office explained that while the two parties have common goals there needed to be movement from both sides.

Last week, the European Union agreed a new Brexit deadline of 31 October.
