Britain's Conservatives in fourth place in EU election poll, Farage leads

European Parliament election

A YouGov poll for The Times newspaper, published Monday, showed the Conservatives in a lowly fifth place as voters turn against the two major United Kingdom parties.

Britain is mired in political chaos and it is still unclear whether, when or even if it will leave the EU.

The two parties endured a drubbing at the polls earlier this month during local elections, with voters venting their fury over the UK's ongoing Brexit stalemate.

Labour's Brexit pointman, Keir Starmer, told The Guardian newspaper that any cross-party deal lacking a confirmatory referendum would not pass parliament as about 150 Labour lawmakers would oppose such a deal.

The weeks-old Brexit Party led by Nigel Farage, meanwhile, is dominating the race on 34 per cent - more than the Tories with their 10 per cent, the opposition Labour party with 16 per cent, and the anti-Brexit Change UK (CUK) party combined.

Farage, whose former party UKIP is credited by many with forcing Britain's 2016 referendum on European Union membership, launched his new party in April, threatening to take on Britain's political leaders who he accused of betraying the vote to leave.

Labour's deputy leader is calling for members to vote for the party at forthcoming elections, despite unhappiness with its European Union position.

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

"I only did it because the government and Parliament have made a total mess of it".

"There was a report in today's newspaper that said that Mrs May doesn't want the humiliation of losing a vote of confidence amongst the national association chairmen, which would be unprecedented".

Labour's trade policy chief Barry Gardiner told Sky News one of the "big sticking points" was that there was no guarantee that any successor to May would "actually deliver on it".

But other ministers said now was not the time to force May out, arguing her departure would do little to change the arithmetic in parliament, which has already rejected her deal three times. "What we need to do is to get on with the job", he said, adding that the deal could be passed in the next few months.

"No one should be under any illusion that just changing the person in that position would change the parliamentary reality".
