United Kingdom minister warns about protest votes at European Union elections

April FrancisMay 13, 2019

Andrew Hawkins, the chairman of ComRes, described the poll as a "disaster", adding: "If the Conservative leadership contenders are not careful, there will be no party for them to lead".

Deutsche Bank analysts point out that the latest press reports suggest that the United Kingdom is mulling reopening Brexit talks with the European Union with the PM's office saying over the weekend that the government will explore with the European Union this week how to rewrite the outline political agreement on future customs ties.

The Tory collapse has been stunning, with a party that has billed itself as "the natural party of government", and claims to be the longest-lived active political party in the world now polling at just 10 per cent, according to a new YouGov survey.

When asked if he felt a change of party leader would improve the party's dire poll ratings, Scully was reticent: "My biggest worry is that a leadership election will see a six-week window where we will be talking to ourselves and not the country".

"But raising expectations of the kind of deal the United Kingdom could get and using the phrase "no deal is better than a bad deal" so relentlessly was always going to open the party up to this kind of challenge once those expectations could not be met".

The shadow Brexit secretary warned it was "impossible" to see how an agreement between the Conservatives and Labour could clear the Commons unless it guaranteed the deal would be put back to the public for a "confirmatory vote".

He's shooting an insane 42 percent from three-point range, 56 percent from the field, and 90.1 percent from the free-throw line. Curry must re-emerge as the alpha scorer and lead playmaker, running more pick-and-rolls and taking on a heavier shot load.

Downing Street has said the prime minister remains opposed to any form of referendum being attached to a Brexit deal, as the government prepares to enter its seventh week of talks with Labour to find a compromise.

May's government hopes that Britons elected to the European Parliament will not need to take their seats, still wanting to get a divorce deal passed by parliament before the end of June.

Labour has dropped 5% from 21% the previous week.

He said: "On the European elections, while the question of which party Brexit voters should back was settled some time ago, the equivalent for Remain voters is still ambiguous".

"Interestingly, Brexit voters have deserted the Tories to such an extent that the Conservatives actually have a higher share of the European vote among Remainers (12%) than among Leavers (11%)".
