It's got nothing to do with 'brexit' really. It's just a call for a general election to take place as eary as June 8th.

Lets just hope 'Labour' DO NOT get in. They are the last party we want in charge, after what they let happen before...


What happened before? If by Iraq sure we dont want that.
If you mean the great financial crash and money issues, you should look at the Tories record, they've doubled the debt whilst cutting from just about everywhere, they were meant to be balancing the books, they done the opposite.. By design.


I meant the Labour party opened the gates to mass immigration from the ME/Africa (most of whom were Muslim). Now we have big divisive issues in this ?Country because of this and also homegrown terrorists have been allowed to grow within their communities and lets face it, they have lots of communities now in the UK. Not to mention everything we eat is HALAL when we didn't ask for it.

Good , it's right Theresa May has her own manifesto to put to the people and her own mandate to lead the country.
Bye Bye Jeremy , the end is nigh.

Wrong and you are not the only one to think this, it was actually a speech given by Lord Mountbatten the Queen's Uncle in INDIA when he observed partition in which he invited them to come and live with us.

He was the last Viceroy of india and the queen's uncle, the highest mason in the British Empire (it still was called that) and was probably only making that invitation to the wealthy Indian's but it had the effect of opening the flood gate's as you call them, since he was so high in the British hierarchy the Tory's are actually more to do with this episode than you believe.

Here is one beneficial side effect the Tory's enjoyed from the mass immigration from India and Pakistan, it is called Divide, Keep Divided and Conquer.
As so many of these people started to come into the nation they were often poor, the council housing which the Labor Party had intended for the working class, the ex service personel and the poor of the nation was then used by whichever government was in power to house these new migrant's to the UK, just like under the EU they were often given priority especially in later years over our own people but this had the knock on effect of creating alienation in these often poor, working class and LABOR party seat's and constituency's weakening the Labor Party's hold on these area's, so it's bread and butter threatened the Labor party was forced to fall for the trap the Hierarchy had lain for them and turn to chasing the vote's of the new migrant's (most of whom actually voted Tory at first) but because so many migrant's had come into the country it actually did not work as perhaps intended and in fact that vote became a sizable enough vote to become a viable political concern.
This in turn led to all party's seeking the Migrant/Minority vote.

Remember this before you accuse Labor, they were the moderate center left working class party of the BRITISH people, the Tory party are, have and always will be the party of the Elite, the party that gave you food bank Britain, the party that forced poor, disabled and sick people to work or die, the part that hired Cameron's friend's FRENCH COMPANY ATOS (why not give the job's to British people or better yet get the DWP to do it themselves rather than robbing the British tax payer to fund Cameron's friend's), the Party that want to remove state old age pension completely.

And don't be fooled by Blair and the still very Blairite labor members that are willing to destroy there own party to get a labor leader out because they want another tory light boy in they are Closet Tory's and not real labor anyway.

When the Tory's are in power we have mass incident's, minor's being beaten over the head's with truncheon's for standing up LEGALLY for there right's, Hillsborough cover up's and many other such crime's against the British people and now we have the Poor forced into homelessness, sanctioned and forced onto ZERO HOURS CONTRACT's which mean that they are still dependent upon welfare but don't appear on the unemployed statistic's all of which hide the true suffering of the nation's OWN poor people, not the migrant's because whether under the Tory's or anyone else they always get the handout's that the British are denied.

Ah the good old Labor Party.

I remember their many election battles against the Conservatory Party.

Anything can happen in British politics these days and I wouldn't be surprised anymore.
What an exciting and interesting few weeks ahead, I see much heated debate to come on the forums, and much amusement.

*edit*
...and for the record, I'll be voting lib-dem in June, I've voted for the candidate before, an excellent constituency MP who I have personally had professional dealings with.
I live in a constituency which is closely fought between conservative and lib-dem, conservatives won at the last election solely because of the UKIP vote.

I voted UKIP solely to express my wish for a referendum. We have had that referendum, I voted leave, so now I'm voting again for the best person I know to represent my community.

Not really , she has everything to gain and nothing to lose , I think she will gain seats and it will strengthen her hand in Europe.
She's singing the right tune in regard to Brexit and I believe Ukip supporters will jump ship to the party that is delivering what they want.

The big looser will be Jeremy Corbyn , another good reason for an election to be sooner rather than later , we can't go on with the Labour party in the state it is in , the country needs an effective opposition and at he moment Labour isn't it.

Well May has made it quite clear by playing this game that despite her claims, she doesn't have the country's best interests at heart, only her own and her party's.

I dread to think what this country will be like once her and her pals have finished with it - a low tax, low regulation heaven for corporations and the rich and complete hell for everyone else.

While I think May is taking full advantage of a Labour Party apparently low in the polls and with plenty of internal strife, I cannot lie down and allow the Tories to continue to decimate our NHS, social care, education system, workers rights and support for the vulnerable and disabled under the false guise of austerity while proceeding to give tax breaks to their mates unchallenged. I'll be voting and campaigning for Labour.

Lol but it could still go tits up depending on how voting goes in Northern Ireland and Scotland.
Anything could happen in the next few weeks so I keep an open mind and popcorn at the ready.

Low tax and low regulations are good for small businesses, too.

I'm pretty sure they will ensure these perks do not apply to small businesses.

For the first time in my life, I might actually vote Tory. Corbyn is a good guy but he has his head in the sand. I'm seriously concerned right now.

Sure, the accountancy costs can be prohibitive for some small businesses, but every legal framework to avoid paying tax, such as Amazon and Google enjoy, is available to small business.
Tax avoidance is legal, tax evasion is not.
I am self employed, I work within the law and exploit any legislation which helps me pay less tax.
It is up to the people to force government to change the laws they are unhappy with.

Well they may not be what they once were but at least there leaders don't put there dongler into a dead pig's mouth or burn a fifty pound note in front of a tramp to show there disdain for the poor in some sick and twisted satanic Bullingdon club initiation ceremony.

As for Theresa I warmed to her after she got rid of LDS and cleaned house but she really is not much better, just not a sickening person like that Cameron was.

On the other hand the old looney left were just as bad and everyone know's that when they got into power they simply looked after number one, Derek Hatton in my part of the wood's for example, the biggest crook in UK politics bar none (OK Thatcher was more evil but only just), by the way everything I state is fact, I am however voting green and the Tory's may yet have that sick grin wiped off there faces as the Greens though small are open to a coalition and so too maybe the SNP whom will likely once again wipe everyone else out in Scotland.
By the way Labor kicked Hatton out of the party, he actually stole art from the Liverpool museum, one painting of the Liverpool blitz was put into the office of one of his crony's and then conveniently disappeared and he is not popular in Liverpool after what he had done so though Liverpool is generally speaking a Secure Labor seat, especially after the Thatcher years it is far from the looney left the rest of the nation has it portrayed as.

I am also self employed but do not believe in exploiting tax laws. I agree with you about people forcing the government to change the laws, which is why I will be voting Labour!

I think Labour have proved how useless they are!

They where in power from 1997-2010 and all they have to show is the minimum wage, the Iraq war, selling off our gold reserves and the financial crash!

There was no fixing the already failing NHS or our degrading schools, no updating our obsolete train lines, fixing the rusting north or sorting out the tax doding scum.

The only good thing they did was the minimum wage. 13 years and thats all they have to show for it?

Why would the next labour goverment be any diffrent?

I dont want want to vote conservative, due to the disability cuts but dammed if I will ever vote for labour.

I welcome this news, I believe we should vote as to who has the hot seat

Honestly without trying to annoy anyone

Has Corbyn got any chance?

Or will we see a post Brexit reversal, that no one is predicting

I am no Blair fan, Blair and Corbyn are worlds apart politically although the Tories have done a hell of a lot more damage to our public services than Blair did. Blair was a neoliberal, Corbyn is a democratic socialist, the difference in my eyes is that one is owned by the establishment and the other works for the people.

Where war is concerned, the difference is blatantly obvious, you must agree there? And you can hardly blame the global financial crash on Labour. Deregulation of the banks did not help matters but again Corbyn would not advocate that.

Could this be one reason why May called the election in such a hurry?

Exclusive: CPS considering charges against over 30 people including Tory MPs over expenses
