British PM calls for Snap general election

Britain will go to the polls in June for what could a rerun of last summer’s Brexit referendum.

As Theresa May emerged from her Ten Downing Street offices, what should would say was to take everyone by complete surprise. Reluctantly she said a Brexit election was needed to stop her critics.

“I welcome the opportunity for us to put the case to the people of Britain, to stand up against this government and its failed economic agenda,” Jeremy Corbyn Leader of U.K. Labour Party said.

When she became Prime Minister, May promised there’d be no snap election.

But successful challenges in Parliament’s upper chamber and in the courts, as well as a growing political campaign against a so-called Hard Brexit now appear to require a strengthened government majority, said May for ‘certainty and stability.’

It’s true Theresa May has a significant lead in the UK’s opinion polls卋ut these days there’s no such thing as a risk free general election and the wrong result for the government could rewrite Brexit
