United Kingdom opposition campaigns, govt lies low, in European Union election

Talks between Labour and the government are due to continue at around 1700 GMT on Wednesday but Labour say that, despite weeks of talks, they are yet to see the substantive movement from the government they believe is needed to reach an agreement.

Mr Farage, who is also an MEP, was joined by Conservative work and pensions secretary Amber Rudd, Change UK MP Anna Soubry, Labour's shadow economic secretary to the treasury Jonathan Reynolds and businessmen John Mills on the panel.

Meanwhile, Mrs May was last night given until teatime today to come up with a "road map" to her resignation as leader of the Conservative Party - or have one forced upon her.

"I know local people are concerned about cuts to bus services, the NHS and social care". It doesn't need to be this way. Journalists in the Q&A session overwhelmingly wanted to focus on what a Labour vote will mean for the Brexit process.

Mike Greene, 54, will stand for Nigel Farage's new party in its first shot at a seat in Westminster.
