Britain's May stands by promise to resign after phase one of Brexit

May on Tuesday reluctantly accepted that Britain will take part in European elections, nearly three years after voting to leave the EU. "What we need is a bit of understanding", Corbyn said.

After being questioned on the clarity of his message to voters, Mr Corbyn said he made "no apology" for the party "trying to offer something to everyone over Brexit".

"Other parties appeal to just one side of the Brexit debate because they aren't really committed to taking on the tax dodgers, the big polluters or the financial gamblers who crashed our economy a decade ago", he said in the speech at Kent University's Medway campus.

The spokesperson for May then stated that she will resign after the first stage of Brexit and that if it was entirely up to her, the United Kingdom we have left the European Union already.

The Labour leader suggested the option of a second referendum could be a "healing process".

As democratic socialists, Corbyn said, Labour could not ignore the result of the 2016 referendum.

The Labour leader is expected to set out the party's position on the circumstances in which it would back a second vote.

May has so far remained in office, refusing on Wednesday to offer her lawmakers a timetable detailing her plans to resign. But Corbyn played down the prospects of an early breakthrough, saying: "It's actually quite hard negotiating with a disintegrating government, with cabinet ministers jockeying for position".

Mrs May's spokesman added it was "a matter of deep regret to the prime minister that we have not been able to deliver Brexit on time".

'It's in the country's interests to try to get this sorted one way or another.

"We voted to trigger Article 50 in 2017 and promised to respect the referendum in our general election manifesto and again at our party conference previous year".

Speaking in Kent, Corbyn said a confirmatory vote on any deal agreed with Brussels could help bring the Brexit process to a "conclusion".

Mr Corbyn pinned the blame on Theresa May's Government's "complete failure on Brexit".

He said Mr Farage's Brexit Party, which leads Labour in the polls ahead of the European elections, was "the No Deal Party" and its ideas threatened millions of jobs.

Corbyn also said Labour was the only party that could combat the "snake oil" peddled by Nigel Farage.

'It would be a Donald Trump Brexit, leaving us at the mercy of a reckless and bellicose USA administration.
