Rachel Johnson, candidate for the new pro-EU political party, Change UK takes part in the launch of their European election campaign in Bristol on April 23, 2019.

The Independent Group was formed nine weeks ago when eight Labour MPs and three Tories left their parties.

She was joined on stage by former BBC Newsnight presenter Gavin Esler, who is also standing.

Meanwhile, Mr Farage vowed to target Labour heartlands and his new Brexit Party unveiled more of its European election candidates, including Claire Fox - a former member of the Revolutionary Communist Party. "We need a People's Vote now".

"The bigger principle for people in Britain is that we voted to leave the European Union and they want the politicians to get on with it", he told the BBC Radio 4 Today program, adding that it would be " very, very challenging" for May to continue as leader if she failed to get her deal through.

Unlike May, Corbyn seems in no hurry to get Brexit done, people familiar with the matter said.

The journalist, who described them as the "posers of Brexit" and said they were "selling the same old snake oil".

"I believe the only way we're going to break this impasse properly is if we have fresh leadership of the Conservative Party", Evans told the BBC.

Despite coming under fire, the prime minister survived a vote of confidence of her MPs in December.

Many Conservative Brexiteers think May should be replaced with a more staunchly pro-Brexit leader such as the former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.

Rachel said: "These are chances that the politicians who chose to campaign to Leave have enjoyed themselves".

He derided the "poseurs of Brexit - the Farage's and Rees Moggs...they claim to speak for the British people...they stole our patriotism and I want it back".

The government still hopes it can avoid holding European Parliament elections, but has begun selecting Conservative candidates and started the necessary procedures to be ready if a poll does need to be held. "It is a worldwide joke", he told the event.

"I have never been seriously anxious about the future of our country but I am now".

'They are laughing at us - not with us, at us'.

It is putting forward a full list of six candidates in Scotland, led by a former activist for the Labour-allied Co-operative Party.

May is determined to see the divorce through to its conclusion, her advisers say.
