Theresa May Rejects Calls to Resign, Disowns Brexit Failures

Hunt says compromise needed to deliver Brexit

British Prime Minister Theresa May stands by her commitment to resign after she completes "phase one" of the Brexit process to open the way for a new leader to negotiate the second phase, her spokesman said on Wednesday.

But many Conservative lawmakers believe that May has failed to deliver on Britain's vote to leave the European Union and that the party needs a new approach.

"I want to look whatever deal is come to between the parties and I know this is a crucial week".

The government has resumed talks with Labour to try and break the deadlock in Parliament over the terms of withdrawing from the EU.

Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservative government had been desperate to avoid United Kingdom participation in polls for United Kingdom seats in the 751-seat European Union legislature.

The reality is that they are forging ahead towards the European Union elections to get MEPs in place before working towards blowing the lid on yet another extension as the October the 31st Hallowe'en Article 50 extension deadline approaches, before lining us up for a total reversal of Brexit.

That fear is compounded by the growing realization that May could be forced out of office sooner rather than later, with European elections (set for 22 May) also expected to see massive losses for the Tories.

But highlighting the decision by Boris Johnson and Dominic Raab to back Mrs May's Brexit deal at the third time of asking, Mr Farage said it was "very hard to work out in the final analysis who, in that case, you could really trust" and so the party's priority was to fight a full national campaign.

Pressure on Theresa May to set a firm resignation date has increased ahead of a meeting with the chairman of the powerful 1922 Committee of Tory backbenchers.

A survey by the ConservativeHome website published on Tuesday suggested that six out of ten party members will instead vote for Nigel Farage's Brexit party in the European elections.

Leading Eurosceptic Bill Cash said: "The time has come for her to resign". "She's using up the oxygen her successor will need to breathe", says another.

May's office said: "Today's meeting was constructive and detailed".

One Labour MP who backs a so-called People's Vote sounded a pessimistic note yesterday, telling The Scotsman: "If a referendum was going to happen, things would be further along by now".

If a deal is struck in which Labour achieves many of its goals in that deal, that it takes us up to a general election in which all parties will be able to then set out their stall, then I think that is a deal that is worth pursuing, she said.

As far as I can see, the elections are running, they cannot be stopped and once we're represented in the European Union the only problem the Remain establishment has is how to con us into believing that more extensions to the Article 50 process are needed, before springing the Remain trap shut.
