Jeremy Corbyn meets activists in Manchester after the local elections

His party is locked in talks with the government in a bid to reach an agreement on how Britain will leave the European Union that will get through Parliament.

The two party leaders have failed to come to a consensus on a Brexit deal and therefore, the Prime Minister has had to admit the Conservative Party will fight in the European Union elections.

According to the Telegraph, Theresa May reportedly entered secret discussions over the possibility of staging a second Brexit referendum, the newspaper said on Sunday.

A triple whammy has hit Theresa May as she prepares for Tory backbenchers' verdict on whether she can stay in No 10.

No confidence vote in Parliament: The PM would have to resign if she lost a confidence vote in Parliament.

Treasurer Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown said Mrs May should announce a "road map" for her resignation after the European elections, set for 23 May.

The Prime Minister's meeting with Sir Graham Brady comes after the 1922 Committee requested "clarity" about the Prime Minister's timetable for standing down and triggering a leadership contest.

"The PM deeply regrets that we haven't left the EU on time, which was by 29 March, and that a effect of that is that we will have to take part in the European elections", May's spokesman said.

As talks between the Government and Labour over a Brexit deal resume on Tuesday, there is growing Tory pressure for Mrs May to quit.

"She needs to be given a date".

Conservative Brexit supporters might flock to the newly launched Brexit Party of former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, a staunch opponent of Britain's European Union membership.

What's encouraging, however, is that both the ruling party and the opposition are keen to make progress and work towards a Brexit deal.

The talks have been given new urgency by last week's local elections, which saw the Conservatives hammered and Labour also lose ground as voters expressed anger at the country's Brexit impasse.

Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage told the Press Association: "I'm amazed she is still there".
