Former U.K. Independence Party leader Nigel Farage says democracy is being 'walked all over'.

Asked if he wanted to become prime minister, Farage shrugged, "No, not particularly". "So there's a new approach by the Brexit party and we'll be seeing that after the next election", Woolfe said.

According to analysts at Rabobank, the recently held local elections in England and Northern Ireland had an expected results and lead to a breakthrough in Tory-Labour talks on a desired Brexit outcome.

Chancellor Philip Hammond is said to be among those who have lost faith with the plan to strike a cross-party deal, while education secretary Damian Hinds expressed support for finding a "stable majority" by allowing MPs to vote on different options.

Brexit uncertainty has damaged small businesses after almost three years of negotiations and equivocation, according to research by small business insurer Simply Business.

Amid the seemingly endless stream of defeats and delays, polls are suggesting that May's Tories will bear the brunt of the blame from Brits angry and exhausted by the Brexit saga, and will be punished severely when the country goes to the ballot box next week. One Tory said: "It's hard enough to get members out campaigning at the best of times, so there's no point in pushing them on this!"

MPs fear that they are costing Labour support ahead of the European elections on 23 May.

"I don't think anyone's in any doubt these are going to be hard elections for us", Damian Hinds, the education minister in Prime Minister May's Cabinet, told the BBC Sunday.

The legal default position is that Britain will leave the European Union on October 31 without a deal if an agreement has not been ratified by parliament before then.

A Labour spokesman said the party's top team and trade unions would be updated on what was discussed.

The BBC reported that Olly Robbins would meet European Union officials to secure the change - demanded by the Labour opposition during cross-party talks aimed at breaking the Brexit impasse.

Responding to that comment, Mr Blunt said: 'Nigel Farage said he would do a deal with the devil to get Brexit over the line; the Conservative party is very far from being the devil in this.
