UK PM Theresa May called a snap general

Posted on: 19/04/2017

UK PM Theresa May called a snap general election for the 8th June 2017.  She said that divisions in Westminster over Brexit had made an early vote unavoidable. “The country is coming together, but Westminster is not,” she said. 19th April 2017 MPs approved Theresa May's plan for a snap election in a Commons vote by 522 votes to 13, formally firing the starting pistol on the election campaign.  The EU has said that all discussion on the Brexit negotiations must wait now until after the General Election.
