Cross-party Brexit talks 'positive', says shadow chancellor

An anti-Brexit campaigner holds up her sign in front of an European Union flag during a protest outside European Union headquarters in Brussels.

Conservative Party legislator Ken Clarke says that he doesn't believe British Prime Minister Theresa May will have the ability to convince the party to rear his own Brexit withdrawal bargain.

"She's younger than I am but I am very influenced by her, therefore it's odd that we should be in different parties, to some extent uncomfortable for us both", he said.

"But I'm damned if after 25 years I'm going to roll over and let these politicians do this to us!"

Without any consensus in parliament, reflective of a deeply divided population, all outcomes remain possible in the coming weeks and months: leaving the European Union with a deal, a disorderly exit without a deal, or another vote on whether to leave at all.

"We want exactly the same thing but we are coming to different conclusions about how it should be delivered".

The former minister was one of the main Leave figureheads in the Brexit debate and campaigned vigorously for the United Kingdom to leave the EU.

An Opinium poll published in the Observer newspaper showed the Conservatives at 29 percent, down 6 points from March 28 and 7 points behind Labour.

While that would not give Corbyn a majority needed to form a one-party government, it would be enough for him to rule in a coalition with the Scottish National Party (SNP).

"The government also look set to take a pasting in the European Parliament elections next month with the Leave vote fracturing between them, UKIP and Nigel Farage's Brexit party while much of how the Remain vote splits will depend on how well Labour can continue straddling the divide".

The EU has delayed the UK's departure from the bloc from April 12 to October 31 in order to avoid a no deal.

Mention of Mr Blair's name sent a chorus of boos around the arena, matched only by the mention of arch-Remainer Anna Soubry, forrmerly of the Conservative Party, now an MP for the globalist Change UK (CUK).

"We are lions led by donkeys", said the former UKIP leader and Brexit front-man, who warned that his new party was "not here just to fight the European elections".

"What the prime minister has to do now is aim everything towards departure before the euros (European elections) which would then allow her to step away having done what she said she would do - get the United Kingdom out of the European Union one way or the other", he told Sky News.
