UK Prime Minister Theresa May has announced plans to call a snap general election on 8 June.

She said Britain needed certainty, stability and strong leadership following the EU referendum.

Explaining the decision, Mrs May said: "The country is coming together but Westminster is not."

There will be a Commons vote on the proposed election on Wednesday - Labour have said they will vote with the government.

The prime minister needs Parliament's backing to hold a vote before the next scheduled date of 2020.

Explaining her change of heart on an early election, Mrs May said: "I have concluded the only way to guarantee certainty and security for years ahead is to hold this election."

Could the reason be Tory election fraud means she was about to lose 20 MP's so to beat the arrests she announces a snap election.

 

It a bold move as polls are not to be trusted and I think labour in England are in a much better position than the polls show.

The Tories can raise millions in a short space of time. Labour are in debt and need Trade Union money to fight an election, which they might not get. Lib Dems are also not in a finanicial position for an election.

 

Corbyn is mad to support an early election that his party is not equipped to fight.

We could do with some help from you.

They were in debt, but have had good income over recent years, so might not be the case. The last election cost them £48 mllion.

IMHO, I think she was right to call an early election and I am just surprised it has taken her so long.

 

 

She is constantly being told she doesn't have a personal mandate - she will now either get it or not. Perhaps it will make those in her own party who are causing her grief either put up or shut up.

. "what another one?" :lol:

quite. :)

and May told sturgeon not so long go that it was not the time, with brexit etc, for another 'vote' ie scots independence ref...

sturgeon saying that the election is 'miscalculated'

cf. though that sturgeon did put forward before that the pretender didn't have the mandate...

IMO

What happens when the Tories lose their majority ? Not very likely looking at polls, but how many would trust the Tories with a large majority e.g hard brexit with no negotiation on article 50 terms, no EU trade deal in sight, removal of many rights e.g Human rights, workers rights.

 

During the election campaign Theresa May is going to have to tell voters her full plans and they may not like them. Jeremy Corbyn seems ill prepared to offer an alternative.

This is going to be interesting as will those who could have voted in the EU Ref but didn't and blamed the people who did:madgrin: will vote for a party, or could it be possible, an independent who wants to reverse/challenge the EU ref outcome. A twist in the tale.

Do you mean anyone but the Labour party snowdragon, or do you mean anyone but the Corbynistas?

 

If the former, why do you think that the Conservatives, who are the prime movers in creating what I think you probably mean by our changed country, are any better?

If i remember Snowdragon does not like Labour due to things that happened when they were in power that affected their family. Personal experience is always a major factor behind voting decisions.

Unfortunately, there is no alternative to political democracy for a decent society. Otherwise you have Russia, North Korea, Saudi Arabia to name a few.

 

I would like proportional representation so every vote counts and there would be more choice.

Thank goodness for that - our elections are becoming more like the USA every time - I want to see politicians out there engaging with the public not pandering to the idle who are stuck in front of their screens.

Of course she wont allow herself to be directly asked difficult questions

Unassailable Preaching to the 'plebs is her forte

 

Very mini-Maggie May

at least Maggie would stand up to anyone toe to toe.

Courage of her convictions had Maggie T, no matter how much I disagreed a number of them.

What mess was that snowdragon?

 

I do recall there being lots of news reports about the 'coffers being empty' when the Tories took over.

If that is one of the main reasons snowdragon, then look here

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Kingdom_national_debt

 

525px-UK_Debt_to_GDP_ratio.png

 

 

If Labour had borrowed the amount the Tories have, but with Labours same expenditure, we would have been cash wealthy and just built the nuclear reactors and tidal power lagoons.

 

"The British Government debt is rising due to a gap between revenue and expenditure. Total government revenue in the fiscal year 2015/16 was projected to be £673 billion, whereas total expenditure was estimated at £742 billion. Therefore, the total deficit was £69 billion. This represented a rate of borrowing of a little over £1.3 billion per week."

Interesting that Brexiters and Tories are calling into question Tim Fallons LGBT views.

 

Now Fallon apparently is an Evangelical Christian, and refused to answer when questioned whether he considered gay sex 'a sin', refusing, he said, to get involved in theological questions but that the Christian view was that we are ALL sinners.

 

 

Now whatever Fallons personal beliefs may be, the record shows he unarguably actions his votes in a liberal and progressive way pro LGBT rights,

and if he has personal religious based opinion, they quite correctly remain personal opinion.

 

Strange though that in promoting May's apparently newfound LGBT 'friendliness', these spinners completely fail to highlight Fallons positive support of LGBT rights,

and also fail to highlight MAYs demonstrated and actioned OPPOSITION to LGBT rights

 

http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/article/36683521/is-theresa-may-the-right-conservative-leader-for-gay-people

 

"Mrs May has previously voted against reducing the age of consent for gay people, the repeal of Section 28 and civil partnership."

as has Liam Fox *Liam Fox has voted against every "gay rights" bill during his time in Parliament.It's said he resigned from his student union after a decision to allow an LGBT group to join.

 

and Stephen Crabb (who apparently believes it can be 'cured' and "I don't regret any vote I've taken," he says of his views on gay rights.)

 

Now based on one + vote from May (now its politically expedient some might say) May and the Tories are touted as a LGBT champions

LOL

 

They are certainly far far better at spinning lies than anyone else

I was just asking what mess you were referring to snowdragon, surely you wish to be clear on the issues driving your vote and not fall foul of political spin? (aka lies)

 

and the above isnt politics, they are economic facts, although spinning lies that the Torys are better at managing the housekeeping is of course politics - or lies - depending on how you spin it....
