Brave move by May, have to admire her arrogance on this, will finally put brexit to bed and whether or not she got in as PM on the back of Cameron resigning...

Think it will go her way, Scotland though will have a chance through the polls to gauge where they stand should a referendum is going to work!

As for us it's a negative, unionist voters will be out, deals being done, while the nationalists stay away from London (mainly due to not taking up seats) and not representing their voters!

With a large working majority May can tell the DUP she doesn't need their sycophancy and grovelling.

I don't see may losing this at all. The election will *probably* illustrate ukip are dead and corbyn will not lead a party to victory. The main interesting spot is scotland and seeing where they sit.

If labour take a hammering corbyn will likely be gone.

It would be nice were may to not sweep to victory as she probably thinks she will.

GBP  is stronger against the eur. FT analysis suggest this means soft brexit as May wont have to kowtow to hardliners. Her support for remain was only evera lukewarm, I am a bit worried she is closet hardliner herself.

The strong recovery on Britain’s high streets after last year’s Brexit vote appears to be over, with retail sales figures for the first quarter showing the biggest drop in purchases in the last seven years.

The Office for National Statistics said UK retail sales fell 1.4% in the first three months of 2017, the biggest quarterly fall since 2010.

   European leaders are preparing to recognise the potential for a “united Ireland” within the EU, confirming that Northern Ireland would seamlessly rejoin the bloc after Brexit in the event of a vote for Irish reunification.

In a step that may stoke concerns in Britain that Brexit could hasten the fragmentation of the UK, diplomats are planning to ask leaders of the EU’s 27 post-Brexit member countries to endorse the idea in a summit on Saturday.

I'd expect Nichola Sturgeon to make use of this GDR clause when the time comes to coax Scots back into the EU.

Sadly i think that dup majority is coming back and the sickening arrogance we regularly see from foster will be on view :(

I don't see may losing this at all. The election will *probably* illustrate ukip are dead and corbyn will not lead a party to victory. The main interesting spot is scotland and seeing where they sit.

If labour take a hammering corbyn will likely be gone.

It would be nice were may to not sweep to victory as she probably thinks she will.

With any f@@kin luck he will be  >:(

Corbyn is the only one standing up for workers.
The Tories will help the rich.
If the Tories get in again it will be another example of workers voting against their own interests.

He is standing up for no one if he cant get elected.
He is a liability and the Labour party under him will not get into power.

All well and good to stand from the sidelines and shout the odds, sure any man on here could do that.
Its another thing to get elected and get to implement your ideas.

He should have gone long ago

He is the only one saying how the economy is run. the press arte against him because of this.

the Tories are selling Brexit which means :
-  no funding for the NHS or the elderly,
- breaking of Tory manifesto promises
- continued contributions to the EU budget
- zero control of immigration
- adherence to EU rules
- can't have cake and eat it
- no quick and easy trade deals with the rest of the world

Corbyn says "the rules have created a cosy cartel, which rigs the system in favour of a few powerful and wealthy individuals and corporations. It’s a rigged system set up by the wealth extractors for the wealth extractors.
But things can, and they will, change. And Labour in this election will be part of a movement of the British people to make that change.
How dare they crash the economy with their recklessness and greed, and then punish those who had nothing to do with it?
We will overturn this rigged system. The Conservatives will never do that"

Maybe when Brexit crashes people will join the dots.
