  • Second Brexit referendum vote could happen, says Hammond

Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond leaves Downing Street in London, Britain April 10, 2019.

Hunt, a Brexit convert and Tory leadership hopeful, said passing the European Union withdrawal bill remained a priority for the government, as reports suggested leading cabinet members were happy for May to stay in office until the autumn if she failed to get her deal through parliament.

May's authority has been shattered by her three-time failure to get an exit deal approved by parliament and a pledge to quit once Brexit is delivered, driving speculation about her successor and a possible national election.

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.

Meanwhile, an analysis of various polls by the Sunday Telegraph showed that the Tories would lose almost 60 seats in a potential snap election that could come over May's failure to deliver on Brexit.

Nigel Farage's new Brexit Party is attracting support from disgruntled Conservative voters unhappy at the party's failure to deliver Britain's departure from the European Union, according to new polling.


The UK's Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has been warned by the party's leader in the European Parliament and other grandees that the party would be deserted by millions of anti-Brexit voters if it fails to clearly back a second referendum in its manifesto for next month's EU elections.

CBI director-general, Carolyn Fairbairn, said businesses will adjust their plans to cope with a potential'no-deal' Brexit however, won't be cancelling them.

Despite being handed an extension of EU membership until October 31, May is hoping to pass a withdrawal agreement and lead Britain out of the bloc before May 23 to avoid taking part in elections for the European Parliament.

May has come under fire from MPs including former leader Iain Duncan Smith following her decision to agree an extension that would result in the United Kingdom taking part in European elections next month.

The Conservative Party faces being swept from power by Jeremy Corbyn with the loss of almost 60 seats in the event of a general election, according to new polling.
