Default UK .Theresa May Announces Snap General Election , June 8th .



At least there won't be months and months of party bullcrap for the voters to listen to ..

FTSE 100 down 1.59% . European markets down as well .

She doesn't have enough support to push through the 'Hard' Brexit she wants. So she thinks winning a larger number of seats may allow her to push through her agenda.

It is quite possible that the Tories might even lose the election. While I don't think that Labour led by Corbyn can win, I suspect the Lib Dems might actually make gains.

Effectively this might well be the second referendum on Brexit. Personally I hope people actually vote against Brexit.

Default Queen is obviously stepping down really soon- prolly next week

solid play on her part=

walk away and let someone else deal with it or come out as boss and taske charge

brilliant move imo- I'd do the same. I don't need this ****. Either fall in line be hind me and back the play or go **** yerselves in the street with the next guy.

the society will take the devil they know over the one that they don't-

The return to a king ..........is more likely than her not getting re-elected. good one May


"either back me" " or find someone else "

The public is fickle.. and given the buyers remorse don't take anything for granted.

In the current climate I wouldn't even rule out the moron Corbyn's chances. (Hope in hell)

Shrewd move by May; if she wins (and I believe that she will) she will have a legitimate mandate from "The People", Scotland can get stuffed as well as all the "Remain" cry babies.

The likelihood of her winning is good. The real question is that will she have enough of a lead to push through whatever crap she wants to?
I have my doubts.

This is the chance for the yUK to quash the madness of Brexit. Even though your views differ.

^^ Brexit can't be quashed now that article 50 has been implemented.

The UK is leaving one way or another whether you like it or not, and that is that.
