British Prime Minister Theresa May holds a news conference following an extraordinary European Union leaders summit to discuss Brexit, in Brussels, Belgium April 11, 2019.

In a television interview on Sunday, May's de facto deputy prime minister, the Cabinet Minister David Lidington said he did not think talks between the government and the Labour party, looking for a consensus Brexit deal, could be allowed to drag out for much longer.

May says she still hopes Britain can leave the EU before the country has to take part in elections for the European Parliament in late May. He then said they would "take stock" on the process once parliament resumes after its Easter break.

Without any consensus in parliament, reflective of a deeply divided population, all outcomes remain possible in the coming weeks and months: leaving the European Union with a deal, a disorderly exit without a deal, or another vote on whether to leave at all.

May has so far been unable to get the exit package she agreed previous year with the European Union approved by the British parliament, meaning Brexit day has been pushed back to avoid leaving without a deal.

In a press conference outside his home, Bennett said, "All my life, I've given all I could for the sake of this good people". He was hanging on the results reported by two other TV stations showing his bloc had won more seats than the opponent's.

May's authority has been shattered by her three-time failure to get an exit deal approved by parliament and a pledge to quit once Brexit is delivered, driving speculation about her successor and a possible national election.

If they go badly, it could increase pressure on May to step down.

The Telegraph commented that May now faces mounting calls by MPs and senior grassroots figures to name a date for her departure as it appeared Britain would have to participate next month in elections to the European Parliament.

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.

He said that although a no-deal Brexit appeared less likely, he hoped a recently signed EU-Japan trade deal would roll over to the United Kingdom if it left without a deal.
