Theresa May brushed off renewed Tory calls for her to set a "road map" to resignation in the wake of disastrous council election results as Downing Street made clear the Prime Minister meant to see the first phase of Brexit through.

One option under consideration is allowing MPs to list their Brexit preferences, allowing their second and third choices to be counted if no one option gets an outright majority, the Telegraph reported.

The U.K. was expected to have abandoned the 28-nation bloc by now, but British lawmakers have rejected Prime Minister Theresa May's divorce cope with the EU.

For months, Prime Minister Theresa May's government promised this election wouldn't be held in Britain, because the country would have left the European Union by now.

She is immune from a leadership contest until December after surviving one previous year.

Following their gains in last week's local polls in Britain, the leaders of the Green Party urged voters to say "Yes to Europe, No to climate change".

Archie Harrison WILL become prince when THIS convention is invoked
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex revealed the name of their newborn son on Wednesday: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Celebrating the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle , they had sent gifts for the newly-weds.

The UK's Minister for the Cabinet Office, David Lidington, confirmed there is now no time to complete the ratification of a Brexit deal before the European Union elections - meaning UK parties will have to contest these.

Graham Brady, the chairman of the 1922 committee of Tory backbenchers, is understood to have made clear their frustration last night.

Earlier, Brexit-backing Conservative Andrea Jenkyns confronted May in the House of Commons, saying "the public no longer trust her to run Brexit negotiations".

"I think they've lost track of a lot of the key issues and it's time to get Brexit out of the way and we should be leaving without a deal. If it were an issue about me and the way I vote, we would already have left the European Union".

The EU has agreed to delay Brexit until October 31 to allow British politicians to try to agree a way to leave that minimises the impact of the split.

Separately on Wednesday, spokesmen for May and for the opposition party said talks on how to break the impasse would continue in the coming days.
