    Bet she says we're not leaving the EU. Or that she's just read The Sun and........

    Edit

    Then again may have nothing to do with Brexit.

    If this is an election old Jeeza could end with the biggest electoral deafest in a hundred years.

    The UK public quite like the British army, the monarchy and jobs. Jez can't stand some of those things and is more interested in making friends with Hamas and the IRA than leading an effective opposition - never mind a government

    A very smart move on her part. There is little to no opposition at the moment!

    Mrs May has said that without a General Election, "political game-playing" would affect negotiations with the EU when they reached their "most difficult stage".

    She added: "Because we have at this moment a one-off chance to get this done, while the European Union agrees its negotiating position and before the detailed talks begin."

    Who on earth said, "Now is not the time"?

    She's trying a Turkey here I think, I mean the country not the bird.

    A victory for May will inevitably result in a one party state.

    God help us all is all I can say.

    Could do without yet more turmoil, uncertainty and the inevitable bickering and division so soon after the last GE and EU referendum but got to hand it to her, she has some balls. Let the games begin :)

    God help us if Corbyn becomes PM !

    I see her point of view , many have complained she wasn't the elected PM and there is a lot of dissent In Westminster and perhaps now a chance to vote for "hard or soft " Brexit.

    Really could do without another election and more turmoil though .

    Serious question and not being nasty but who do you think should be PM? Can you seriously see Corbyn in charge?
