Theresa May Hints at Brexit Compromise with Labour

Theresa May

"The pressure on her to go will increase dramatically, I suspect", he said.

After months of acrimonious, indecisive yet cliff-edged wrangling in Parliament over Brexit, U.K. lawmakers began a 10-day Easter break on Friday.

Earlier, May had said that she would step down from her post if she managed to pass her beleaguered deal in the British Parliament.

Consensus, however, was in short supply.

The Government has also held talks with the Labour Party after the Prime Minister reached out to Mr Corbyn last week to help try to deliver Brexit.

She added: 'The point at which our prime minister will not listen, not only to her membership, but will not listen to the people of her country...

And there was little solace for May on her own side of the House of Commons, as pro-Brexit lawmakers from her Conservative Party accused her of capitulating in Brussels. I can't sit by and let her do it.

'I know which one I'd rather have representing us now'. "Nobody has to stay but it is also a home and we are not going to kick anyone out".

She took a pointed dig at Conservative rivals, such as anti-EU campaigner Jacob Rees-Mogg, who say Britain could block and veto legislation to hobble the European Union if it were not able to leave immediately, according to one participant in the summit. Britain has the option of leaving before that if Mrs May succeeds in getting a withdrawal agreement ratified by Parliament.

"Please, do not waste this time", European Council President Donald Tusk said.

May says she still hopes for Brexit to occur before May 23, the date of Europe's parliamentary elections. Labour, on the other hand, has faced critics who believe it should be doing more to represent the 48% who voted to remain in the European Union, as well as from others who have warned that fighting Brexit would amount to abandoning some of the most deprived communities in northern England which voted overwhelmingly to leave.

"The government's position has not changed".

The pressure on May is increasing, with hardline Brexit supporters criticising her for twice begging the European Union to delay Britain's departure and many mainstream Conservatives suggesting she has failed to build consensus.

But pro-Brexit and pro-EU parties are eager to run in a contest seen by many as a way to express their strongly divergent views on the EU. He said the government was trying to limit the economic fallout of that decision.

Hammond said May's government was sticking to its opposition to any new referendum.

"The people doing the negotiation wanted to surrender from the outset".

Decisions would have to be made "swiftly" on MPs' return after the Easter recess, if the United Kingdom was to leave the European Union with a deal "as soon as possible" and avoid having to hold European parliamentary elections. The former U.K. Independence Party leader said delays to Brexit were "a willful betrayal of the greatest democratic exercise in the history of this nation".

Labour economy spokesman John McDonnell said the talks would continue and "we will see by the end of next week how far we have got".
