Antisemitism is threat to Labour at the ballot box, says inquiry head

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.

But they have refused to support the prime minister's withdrawal agreement over concerns with the controversial Irish backstop, which aims to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland.

An analysis of polls since the original intended March 29 exit day, published in the Sunday Telegraph, showed the Conservatives would lose 59 parliamentary seats if an election were held.

The Brexit Party has 70 candidates and sees the upcoming elections, which begin on May 23, as a "first step", Farage said at the launch event in the English city of Coventry on Friday.

Jacob Rees-Mogg gave LBC listeners his reaction to the news that his sister had joined Nigel Farage's Brexit Party ahead of the European Union elections next month. The support is the lowest May's party has scored since the European elections in May 2014, according to the pollster.

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.

Former Conservative leader Iain Duncan Smith called Sunday on May to resign as prime minister next month.

"What we have agreed is a programme of meetings next week on particular subjects with the ministers and shadow ministers concerned getting together", he told the BBC.

He said he had not set a deadline for the talks to produce a result, but the public wanted parliament to resolve their differences over Brexit quickly.

"She's younger than I am but I am very influenced by her, therefore it's odd that we should be in different parties, to some extent uncomfortable for us both", he said.

The Conservative government and Labour are continuing talks over the coming week to test each other's ideas in a bid to break the Brexit deadlock.

David Lidington, who is leading the talks with Labour on subjects such as environmental standards, workers rights and the security relationship with the European Union, said the discussions were going to continue next week but that they wouldn't last months.
