Almost three years since the United Kingdom voted to leave the EU in a shock referendum result, British politics is in crisis and it is unclear how, when or if it will ever leave the European club it first joined in 1973.

Then, she said, the government would put them before the House of Commons in a series of votes.

Earlier, EU negotiator Michel Barnier offered a downbeat assessment of the situation. "Therefore the only option is to find a way through which allows the United Kingdom to leave with a deal". Some would argue that it is democracy in action, others will tell you it is democracy being denied in slow motion.

European Union leaders still want to avoid the chaos of a "no deal" Brexit, but concern is rising that giving Britain a long delay poses risks of its own and would solve little.

Earlier this month, the European Union agreed to postpone the original Brexit date of March 29, but gave Britain only until April 12 to come up with a new plan and seek a further extension, or leave without an agreement or a transition period to smooth the way.

Lawmakers rejected four options in votes in the House of Commons.

May said after a seven-hour Cabinet meeting on Tuesday that she will try to have cross-party talks with opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn to try to break the Brexit logjam in Parliament. The prime minister, who is renowned for her dogged determination, could try to bring her Brexit agreement back for a fourth time later this week.

A hard core of Brexiteer legislators in May's Conservative Party dismiss this as "Project Fear" and argue for what they call a "clean Brexit".

MPs were given slips of paper with eight options, free to opine on as many or few as they wished.

Welsh First Minister and Welsh Labour leader Mark Drakeford said: "At last we see the PM attempting to reach across her red lines and seek a compromise".

It found that 83% of people were sick of seeing Brexit on the news every day, 64% believed the attendant anxiety was bad for people's mental health, and more than two-thirds felt Brexit became more confusing the more they heard about it.

The EU has made clear any further extension will mean Britain taking part in EU elections on May 23.

They are trying to come up with a solution as Remainer MPs launch a new plot to stop a No Deal Brexit starting tomorrow - and following a warning from the country's top civil servant that crashing out of the European Union could push food prices up by 10 per cent and plunge Britain into a recession.

Edwin Morgan, interim director general of business group the Institute of Directors, said May's statement was "a welcome step towards compromise", though their remained obstacles ahead.

Brexiteers say her deal would trap Britain in the EU's orbit indefinitely but pro-EU opposition parties say her proposed break would isolate Britain and cause lasting economic damage. "Both sides must play ball".

Britain had been due to leave the European Union on March 29 but the political deadlock in London forced May to ask the bloc for a delay.

Britain could still accept the deal negotiated by May, which Barnier said was "the only way" for Britain to leave the bloc in an orderly way.

"We still have a little bit of patience", Barnier said, but urged British legislators and the government to take a more realistic approach as soon as possible.

Mrs May is due to meet European Union leaders at an emergency summit in Brussels on April 10 to decide what steps remain open.

Should it it pass tomorrow, all stages of the Cooper Bill would be debated on Thursday, but it would still have to be approved by the House of Lords and receive Royal Assent from the Queen.
