United Kingdom government to resume cross-party Brexit talks next week

Parliament could be forced to decide which Brexit option to go for if talks with the Labour party fall through, Theresa May's deputy has said.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is coming under increasing pressure from his own party members to fully commit the party's support to a confirmatory referendum.

The Sunday Telegraph says an analysis of polls suggests Mr Corbyn is heading for No10 after Theresa May failed to deliver on her promise to take Britain out of the European Union by March 29.

The poll said Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn would have a high chance of entering the Number 10 Downing Street because his party would be the largest in the Commons after a general election as many conservative supporters would vote for nationalist parties like the UK Independence Party (UKIP) or the newly-launched Brexit Party run by former UKIP leader Nigel Farage.

A poll by Opinium covered in the Observer said that support for Tories had fallen to 29 percent, down six percentage points compared to a fortnight ago.

May told MPs last month that she would stand down once she had secured the UK's exit from the EU.

Eurosceptic Iain Duncan Smith, a former Conservative Party leader, said May should be ready to quit in June.

"What the Prime Minister has to do is aim everything now towards departure before the European elections which would then allow her to step away having done what she said she would do, getting the United Kingdom out of the European Union one way or the other and then we can have another leadership election and pick a new leader", he told Sky. "If on the other hand we do offer clarity and a confirmatory ballot we could do very well", Corbett said.

David Lidington, who is leading the talks with Labour on subjects such as environmental standards, workers rights and the security relationship with the European Union, said the discussions were going to continue next week but that they wouldn't last months.

Lidington told the BBC compromise talks with Labour would continue, with both sides seeking agreement over a plan for Brexit that could win parliament's approval. But with Parliament still deadlocked on whether to accept that the government's divorce handle the bloc, European Union leaders have stalled Brexit until October 31.
