British Prime Minister Theresa May is a politician with a current job-approval rating of less than 30 per cent. Last week, 225 of the Tory party's 314 members of Parliament opposed the measure. The head of the EU's executive stressed on Monday that according to EU rules, the United Kingdom would have to take part in European Parliament elections if it stays in the bloc beyond April 12.

It's unclear if May would accept any option that might win approval in the House of Commons.

He said: "I think it would be in the national interest to have a cross-party government so we can take decisions without the chaos that we're seeing in Parliament at the moment where every possible alternative is rejected".

Frustration is growing within the bloc, with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on Sunday telling an Italian TV station that the EU is running out of patience with Britain.

British lawmakers will try once again today to agree a new approach to Brexit after rejecting Prime Minister Theresa May's divorce deal for a third time, but the European Union warned its patience was wearing thin.

"We need to get Brexit done, because we have so much more to do, and so much more that unites the Conservative party than divides us", Johnson wrote in Monday's Daily Telegraph, which sounded to some like a leadership bid. "Enough of the long silence".

The votes by MPs are not legally binding but the government fears they may lead to legislation that would force May's hand.
