Brexit: Cross-party talks to continue

The government is set to continue its Brexit talks with the Labor Party as MPs return to Westminster following the Easter break.

Cabinet ministers, including the PM’s de facto deputy, David Lidington, will meet with the senior opposition figures in other to solve the Brexit impasse.

But the resumption of talks has result to anger among a number of Tory MPs, with senior backbenchers  holding series of meeting later to discuss their next move.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to chair a cabinet meeting.

Tory MP Nigel Evans, a Brexiteer and critic of Mrs May, told the BBC the government’s handling of Brexit had been “frustrating” and that “fresh leadership” was needed.

Senior members of the Conservative backbench 1922 committee, which Mr Evans is a member of, will meet late this afternoon.

He said: “She’s reaching out to the Labor Party and Jeremy Corbyn, when she should have been reaching out to the people.”
