Reports that Tory MPs have been placed on a three-line whip later this week raised speculation that the government could make a final attempt to hold votes on a Brexit outcome before European elections on 23 May.

"We haven't seen the significant shift yet that we require to be able to support a deal", said Labour's finance chief John McDonnell.

Targeting Labour voters on a European election campaign stop in Yorkshire, Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage claimed a new referendum would help him win a majority in Parliament at the next general election.

One-run triumph gives Mumbai Indians record fourth IPL title
West Indies batsman Pollard's unbeaten 41 off 25 balls, alongside Quinton de Kock's 29 helped set up the Mumbai total. Neither was able to make a consistent case this year, but 12 months down the line, who knows how the land will lie.

Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, a longtime critic of the European Union, has shied away from committing to a second Brexit referendum - to the fury of a majority of his lawmakers, who believe a second vote on European Union membership would overturn the June 2016 plebiscite, in which a thin majority voted for Brexit.

"You are in denial, the BBC is in denial, the Tory and Labour parties are in denial", said Farage.

Addressing a party rally in west Yorkshire, Farage said that up until the European elections, where his party leads in the polls, he would talk only about Brexit-related matters.

The declaration, published with the British government's withdrawal agreement that has been vetoed by the parliament three times, sets out the parameters for the future relationship between Britain and the EU.

A cross-party Brexit deal will not pass through the Commons unless it is subject to a fresh public vote, senior Labour figures have said.

Sir Graham Brady, chairman of the Tory backbench 1922 Committee, and 13 former cabinet ministers have written to Mrs May to warn her not to agree a compromise with Labour that includes a customs union with the EU. May, while pledging to step down ahead of the next phase of Brexit negotiations, is yet to name a date.

"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". Both the Conservative and Labour party faced heavy losses in the May 2 elections in England and Northern Ireland, as smaller parties, including the Greens and Liberal Democrats, made gains, while the UK Independence Party (though suffering net losses overall) made some gains in areas that had voted heavily to leave.

Brexit has been delayed until October 31 as MPs failed to reach an agreement on how best to exit the EU.
