Theresa May’s party slumps to fifth place in opinion poll as pressure mounts for her to step down

"No deal planning has never stopped", the spokesman said.

"Polls show his Brexit Party easily winning next week's European Parliament polls and edging ahead of Theresa May's Conservatives in a United Kingdom general election", reports Yahoo News. Founded in January, the party could well top the polls with the ruling Conservatives facing the humiliation of a virtual wipeout.

Former Brexit secretary David Davis called on May to abandon cross-party talks with Labour.

"The first and most obvious takeaway is that the Brexit party will do pretty will in terms of seats but the "Remain" parties may do well in terms of vote share", says Anand Menon, Director of United Kingdom in a Changing Europe.

"Clearly people are showing frustration, I understand that", he said, adding: "People feel really let down we haven't left already and that we are still talking about if we are going to leave instead of when we are going to leave".

To try to break the impasse in parliament, May turned to the opposition Labour Party, led by veteran socialist Jeremy Corbyn, but after weeks of talks they have so far failed to reach an agreement.

May's Conservatives trailed in fifth with 10 percent after the Liberal Democrats and the Greens.

"A vote for Labour is a vote for Brexit in these elections".

He later wrote in Twitter that in a choice between a no-deal exit or staying in the European Union, he would vote to leave without agreement.
