General Election confirmed as MPs back Theresa May

22 April 2017

"That's what I believe in doing, that's what I'm going to be doing around this campaign".

In a public speech, May said that despite the government delivering on the mandate that it was handed following referendum results last summer, its efforts were being undermined by opposition parties, and called on an early election to end political "gameplaying".

Sir, - Brexit was an anti-Tory vote, a vote against David Cameron, a vote against the status quo, a vote against powerful vested interests (including the corporate world for whom free trade is a necessity), a vote for a better life.

That prompted claims from the Conservatives that Labour was planning to disrupt Brexit.

It's this prospect of a so-called "hard Brexit" that has mainly anxious businesses in Britain, many of which trade intensely with the European Union, the biggest destination for British exports.

US Ambassador Nikki Haley told United Nations reporters it was "up to North Korea to avoid further trouble". The latest draft statement dropped "through dialogue" and Russian Federation requested it be included again.

Elections should put that pressure to rest. She said she preferred "to get out and about and meet voters" instead. And she will be able to gain more loyal supporters, which will make her less susceptible to the blackmail of her backbenchers' blackmails.

And Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood - whose profile received a major boost from her involvement in two of the 2015 broadcasts - said: "Theresa May should be empty chaired if she doesn't show up to any planned TV debates". These discussions are expected to be able to continue in the run up to the election, which is scheduled for June 8.

Mr Corbyn promised he would not "play by the rules" if he won the election, but would take on the "cosy cartels that are hoarding this country's wealth for themselves".

Paramore to return with new album
Speaking to Beats 1 Radio presenter Zane Lowe, Hayley revealed the group's troubles had nearly made her give up on music. It echoes songs from their most recent self-titled album but perhaps with slightly more bite to it.

Only 56% of the country back the Prime Minister's call to the polls on June 8, according to research from Consumer Intelligence. He is not likely to succeed in setting the tone of this campaign.

Hours later, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn used his first speech of the election to flesh out the party's anti-establishment rhetoric, accusing the media and establishment of complaining that, under his leadership, the Labour Party doesn't "play by the rules: by which they mean their rules".

The first poll taken after Mrs May's announcement put the Conservatives on 32 per cent, giving Mrs May a 13 point lead on Labour, who polled 19 per cent.

The opposition Labour party is in second place with 24 percent, with the Liberal Democrats third (12 percent). That is not a far-fetched hope.
