Theresa May calls for an early general election

Political Editor

Theresa May has called for an early general election on June 8th in the biggest political gamble of her career. She said divisions in Westminster would cause “damaging uncertainty and instability” and put the Brexit negotiations at risk. Labour said they would offer voters a credible alternative while the Lib Dems called it a chance to avoid the “disaster” of a hard Brexit.
