European parliament elections will go ahead in Britain

Ann Widdecombe will be talking to audiences in Kent

"But she hopes Parliament will agree to a Brexit plan before MEPs start their session in July", May's spokesperson was quoted by Xinhua as saying.

Brexit-backing Tory MP Andrea Jenkyns told Mrs May she had "failed" in European Union withdrawal negotiations and forfeited the trust of the public.

Britain's Conservative government confirmed Tuesday that the country will hold the elections to the European Parliament following MPs' repeated rejection of Prime Minister Theresa May's EU divorce deal.

She is immune from a leadership contest until December after surviving one previous year.

May has been making efforts to push her beleaguered agreement or an alternative withdrawal deal through the British Parliament in a bid to prevent the United Kingdom from participating in the European Union elections.

The leaflet links to a website that names the MPs who voted against Mrs May's deal, according to The Times, including 34 Tory Brexiteers.

Graham Brady, the chairman of the 1922 committee of Tory backbenchers, is understood to have made clear their frustration last night.

He said: "If indeed the Conservatives get something like 15 percent of the vote, which is what they are now at, the days of the Prime Minister, which are already, frankly seemingly limited in scope, may become even more limited".

She continued: "It will tell us that the two-party system on this issue is completely broken".

A number of other parties have already announced their candidates and launched their European election campaigns, but the Conservatives have yet to do the same.

The Prime Minister is reported to be considering a series of votes in the Commons in the next few weeks as talks with Labour over breaking the deadlock have themselves become stuck.

The 0.23 per cent drop comes after the government repeatedly said it did not want the United Kingdom to take part in the elections to the European Parliament later this month.

The EU has agreed to delay Brexit until October 31 to allow British politicians to try to agree a way to leave that minimises the impact of the split.
