Theresa May Calls Early UK Election For June 8th: Brexit Central Campaign Issue
UK Prime Minister announced early elections for June 8th yesterday taking advantage of the only window before Brexit negotiations begin in all seriousness. Given the Conservatives clear lead in the polls and divisions amongst the Labour ranks, Ms May looks set to win a strong majority in the House of Commons, which will stand her in good stead over the negotiation period and also give her three more years mandate once that is over. Labour is a mess, Lib-Dems and SNP will argue the Remain/Soft Brexit case but the Elephant in the Room could well be UKIP, especially if Nigel Farage returns as leader.
