Theresa May is believed to be planning a fresh attempt to get Britain of the European Union before Euro elections in a fortnight amid plots to topple her as Tory leader.

Following their gains in last week's local polls in Britain, the leaders of the Green Party urged voters to say "Yes to Europe, No to climate change".

"She is here to deliver Brexit in phase one and then she will leave to make way for new leadership for phase two", the Downing Street spokesman said.

Britain's main opposition Labour Party has launched its campaign for the European Parliament election with an attempt to appeal to Brexit-backers and pro-Europeans alike.

"But she hopes Parliament will agree to a Brexit plan before MEPs start their session in July", May's spokesperson was quoted by Xinhua as saying.

Party chiefs are relying on telephone canvassing and taxpayer-funded mailshots in a cut-price campaign boycotted by large sections of its membership angry at her refusal to leave the European Union...

Brady, the chairman of the so-called 1922 committee of Tory MPs, said she agreed to address its executive members next week on the question of her future.

This has been perhaps the most confusing Boston Celtics season of my lifetime and just like that, it's on it's way to ending. The Celtics reserves finished with just 23 points between the two games.

"We need an awkward negotiator in order to get a good deal because at the moment what we're faced with is either a bad deal or remaining, and I think that's just so unfortunate", she said.

A Labour spokesman said: "After the second day of talks this week, the negotiating teams are working to establish scope for agreement, and will meet again at the beginning of next week".

Last week it was suggested that if talks between Labour and the Government over Brexit had not achieved anything by today they might be halted.

If their talks fail, May has pledged to allow the parliament to decide on a new strategy in a series of votes.

European elections on 23 May will go ahead, almost three years after the Brexit referendum, the government has confirmed.

However, Britain will now participate in the elections following Theresa May's decision to extend Article 50 - the mechanism that allows the United Kingdom to leave the European Union - until October.
