Theresa May has said her government has “a very big task” in Brexit negotiations and warned people that leaving the European Union is “going to be a complicated process”.
UKIP leader Nigel Farage said May’s comments were “absolutely embarrassing” and made she “look like she is scared of her own shadow”.
Mrs May said she “could not take back” her promise to call a snap general election – something that some Tories are worried about.

Brexit speech: What’s in it?
EU chief Jean-Claude Juncker is due in London on Thursday to give a speech outlining what the 28-nation bloc aims to achieve.
European Council President Donald Tusk will also brief EU leaders on the upcoming Brexit deal between the UK and the EU.
Speaking ahead of her speech, Mrs May defended her approach to Brexit, insisting it was the “right” thing to do.
Ms May also warned that a second referendum would be “imperative” for the UK to protect future membership of the European Union, saying: “I don’t think anyone would want to leave the European Union if they were not completely convinced that they could be part of a reformed EU.”
The Conservative party says the EU should not dictate a new immigration deal after Brexit.
Earlier in the week, May told MPs that no deal on trade “is better than a bad deal” but there should be no “race to the bottom in terms of benefits we receive, we’ll be at the bottom of the pile”.
In her speech, the Prime Minister said the EU should accept she was taking Britain out of the single market but not the customs union.
“If we leave the EU then we will be a completely new nation – our borders and customs will be controlled separately from our laws and regulations going back into the EU,” she said.
“I don’t think this will be a difficult negotiation – but I do think we should not be taking a second referendum.”
