Brexit anger makes European vote 'difficult' for Conservatives - Damian Hinds

So far both sides have said the talks are not going very well.

A YouGov poll for The Times newspaper, published Monday, showed the Conservatives in a lowly fifth place as voters turn against the two major United Kingdom parties.

"And I believe if we leave the Labour and Conservative parties to deal with this, we will never get the Brexit we voted for".

Chancellor Philip Hammond is said to be among those who have lost faith with the plan to strike a cross-party deal, while on Sunday Education Secretary Damian Hinds expressed support for finding a "stable majority" by allowing MPs to vote on different options.

"I've made it clear that at this stage, at this 11th hour, any deal that comes through from this government ought to be subject to the lock of a confirmatory vote", Sir Keir said.

Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage said there has been a breakdown of trust between people and politicians.

European elections will be hard for Britain's governing Conservatives, their education minister said on Sunday, after the party slumped into fourth place in an opinion poll and a new Brexit Party took top spot.

The talks with Labour are a last resort for May, whose party's deep divisions over Brexit have so far stopped her getting approval for an exit agreement and left the world's fifth largest economy in prolonged political limbo.

The Tory collapse has been stunning, with a party that has billed itself as "the natural party of government", and claims to be the longest-lived active political party in the world now polling at just 10 per cent, according to a new YouGov survey.

"Here we are, almost three years on from that referendum, Brexit's not been delivered, and frankly given this government and given this parliament there is no prospect of these parties delivering a clean break Brexit".

Elections for 73 MEPs to the European Parliament will take place on 23 May.

"We're at the flawless storm, so yes, I think we'll get an absolute mauling".
