The Prime Minister is also under pressure from her own party to set out a roadmap for her departure, with her Brexit plan already having been defeated three times in the Commons.

One option under consideration is allowing MPs to list their Brexit preferences, allowing their second and third choices to be counted if no one option gets an outright majority, the Telegraph reported.

Five separate dates in mind: UK Prime Minister Theresa May.

"MPs are supposed to represent their constituencies, a lot of the MPs that were in Leave constituencies have repeatedly voted against Brexit motions and it is so frustrating that we're still in this position when we should have left on the 29th March".

Britain's main opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn warned frustrated eurosceptic voters on Thursday they were risking a "Donald Trump Brexit" as he launched the Labour Party's campaign for European elections later this month.

The prime minister agreed a Brexit deal with the European Union last November, but MPs had rejected it three times. "If it were an issue about me and the way I vote, we would already have left the European Union".

"We constantly have lively discussions in the National Executive Committee, however I do not think there will be a row", he said.

Last week, polls placed the Brexit Party ahead of the Labour Party and Conservative Party with 30 percent of Brits votes for European Parliament voting intentions.

The veteran Labour leader said the fledgling party founded by anti-EU firebrand Nigel Farage supported leaving the bloc with no deal, which would result in "an economic shock threatening entire industries".
