British PM tells Labour: Let's do a deal on Brexit

Theresa May

May added her voice to these calls in an essay published in a Sunday newspaper. Frankly, if May signs up to this, I can't see the point of the Conservative Party even existing.

However she said this week's local elections, where both parties lost councillors, had given a "fresh urgency" to talks in a bid to end the impasse.

David Davis backs Dominic Raab as next Conservative leaderIt comes amid further calls for Theresa May to step down as Prime Minister following the recent local election results, which saw the Conservatives lose almost 1,300 seats.

Writing in the Daily Mail, Mr Davis said Mr Raab was the "standout candidate" and the "best-placed Brexit candidate to win the necessary support among MPs and party members and, above all, broaden our appeal to voters".

Britain was supposed to leave the European Union on 29 March, but the deadline has now been extended to 31 October after MPs voted down the Prime Minister's withdrawal deal three times. The U.K.'s departure date has been postponed from March 29 until October 31 because May has been unable to get British lawmakers to approve her divorce deal with the EU.

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May speaks at the Scottish Conservative conference in Aberdeen, Scotland, Britain May 3, 2019. The party is also expected to do badly in the upcoming European Parliament elections due on May 23rd.

Following newspaper reports that Theresa May is preparing to give ground this week in the discussions, the Labour frontbencher said the PM had "blown the confidentiality" of the talks.

"We have to make a change", former Conservative leader Iain Duncan Smith told LBC radio.

He says his story is not about making a profit, but connecting a community and sharing his passion for comics with others. It's Comic Book Day, comic book stores and specialty shops are offering special events - and of course free comic books.

"The message was loud and clear that, since March 29, people have decided they are absolutely furious with the political class".

"Labour and Conservatives at the moment are suffering from this whole Brexit thing - tortuous, sort of endless, Brexit thing and we've got to get beyond it".

Many party members and lawmakers want Labour to support a new, second referendum on Britain's European Union membership that could reverse voters' 2016 decision to leave.

The Liberal Democrats benefited from Tory losses, gaining 703 seats, with the Greens and independents also making gains.

Labour economy spokesman John McDonnell said Sunday the party would "come to an agreement if we can" with the Conservatives.

Labour's Corbyn has made a permanent customs union with the EU a condition for supporting May's Brexit plans, while the Conservatives oppose a customs union as it would stop Britain from reaching its own trade deals with other countries.

Labour's deputy leader Tom Watson said it would be "very difficult" to agree a deal in the cross-party talks.

"I have known and worked with Dominic over the last 13 years so I know he has the vision and personal attributes required to lead us at these crossroads in our history", he said.
