Boris Johnson’s sister running for pro-EU party

The Prime Minister went into the Easter recess having been forced to seek an extension to Article 50, the mechanism that allows the United Kingdom to leave the European Union, until 31 October, drawing the ire of many Brexiters in her party.

Conservatives who have working on local election campaigns, and now hastily-arranged European elections, have found anger among voters about the failure to negotiate Brexit - and they are now openly calling for Mrs May to quit.

On Whitehall, the Conservative and Labour Brexit talks started again after the Easter break.

But May survived a no-confidence vote among party colleagues in December, and under Conservative rules she can't face another challenge until a year has passed.

Ahead of the meeting, the committee chairman Sir Graham Brady met privately with the Prime Minister in Number 10.

Talks on striking a compromise between May's government and the main opposition Labour Party resumed Tuesday.

"Instead we must offer a radical alternative based on our values that speaks directly to the people we represent and demonstrate Labour has a way forward out of the crisis". Three times she has taken them to Parliament-and three times they have been rejected.

Mrs May's official spokesman told reporters: "The Prime Minister said discussions with Labour had been serious but had also been hard in some areas, such as in relation to the timetable for the negotiations".

Farage castigated Labour for, as he put it, reneging on its promise to support Brexit, saying: "We're going to go after that Labour vote in a very big way".

If it is defeated, it can not be retabled unless the Government brings the parliamentary session to an end and presents a new legislative programme in a Queen's Speech, introducing delays which would nearly certainly dash hopes of avoiding the European elections.

PRIME Minister Theresa May "could be forced from office" after 70 local Conservative association chiefs signed a petition to kick her out.

"Cabinet agreed on the need to secure safe passage of the withdrawal agreement bill, WAB, through parliament as soon as possible in order to allow the United Kingdom to complete the ratification of its orderly departure from the European Union". The Prime Minister's spokesperson told reporters: "The PM said the discussions with Labour had been serious, but had also been hard in some areas, such as in relation to the timetable for the negotiations".

Journalist Rachel Johnson is among candidates for Change U.K., a newly formed party founded by former Conservative and Labour Party politicians.

Pro-Brexit Conservative lawmaker Nigel Evans says calls for May's departure are "growing into a clamor" and she should resign "as soon as possible". There have been reports that some Conservatives are considering whether to change those rules to allow another vote to be held sooner. "It's something that's got to be done, and the longer you leave it the worse it will be".
