General Election 2017: Anne Main welcomes snap election

19 April, 2017, 09:38 | Author: Brian Mcdaniel

The European Union said it would not affect the negotiations on Britain's departure.

Theresa May's decision to call an early election has taken people living in her constituency by surprise.

What's the Fixed-Term Parliaments Act? Everyone who is eligible - and registered - gets to vote for one candidate to represent their local area - which is known in Parliament as a constituency.

"That clearly would be enough to give Theresa May a quite substantial majority".

Ipswich MP Ben Gummer - who is also Cabinet Office Minister with a seat at the top table of government - said Mrs May had taken a courageous decision to ensure she had the strongest possible hand in Brexit negotiations with the EU. "If we do not hold a general election now, their political game playing will continue", she told reporters at Downing Street. Since becoming prime minister last July in the aftermath of Britain's vote to leave the EU, May had consistently said she would not seek an early election.

May's governing Conservatives now have a slight majority, with 330 seats in the 650-seat House of Commons.

The Conservatives are also surely keen to fight a Labour party run by the dramatically unpopular Corbyn. He says it is a "chance to vote for a government that will put the interests of the majority first".

It aims to prevent early elections except in two exceptional circumstances: either by a two-thirds majority vote in the House of Commons or a vote of no confidence in the incumbent PM.

Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron accused the Conservative premier of "bottling" the debates, just hours after May announced that she wanted a vote on 8 June.

Corbyn said he welcomed the decision to call for an election, even though his party is convulsed by divisions over his leadership, widely regarded as lackluster.

"As we enter this campaign it's clear that Labour have an electoral mountain top climb, and its leadership appears to have left its ropes and crampons at base camp", said Martin Boon, director of ICM Research, in a statement.

With Labour not sure what they stand for or who they represent they face a hammering in the election and the SNP in Scotland with nowhere to go but down the Liberal Democrats are the real and only challenger to this Brexit Government.

Mr. Nuttall added on Twitter that every vote for his party would be a reminder to the government that Britain wants a "clean" Brexit.

Prime Minister Theresa May last month formally triggered Britain's exit talks, nine months after the country voted in a referendum to leave the EU.

And speaking to the Yorkshire Post, Tory MPs indicated that few seats will be out of bounds as the Prime Minister looks to shore up support before talks get tough. As the most recent general election was in 2015, the next one was scheduled for May 2020.

The prime minister's own personal ratings also dwarf those of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, with 50 per cent of those asked saying she would make the best prime minister.

Labour campaigned for Britain to remain in the European Union, but Corbyn says he will respect voters' decision to leave.
