British Parliament votes in favour of early polls

20 April 2017, 10:06 | Terri Saunders

May has framed the election, in which her ruling Conservative party could win as many as 100 extra seats, as a way of securing the best possible Brexit deal for the UK. There were also a number of abstentions.

May said the election is needed to stabilize her Conservative Party and the British government ahead of negotiations to leave the European Union. "We are still referring to Hard Brexit vs "Hard-er" Brexit, but now the likelihood of a cliff edge is further reduced, with Theresa May likely to gain a further majority, allowing for flexibility on the negotiations with the European Union".

"What the British people - what the people of the United Kingdom - voted for past year was for the UK to leave the European Union".

Since being fired, Osborne has been criticised for taking on other jobs alongside his duties as a Conservative lawmaker, including editor of the London Evening Standard newspaper and a part-time role at asset manager BlackRock.

Since being fired by Theresa May, Osborne has earned lucrative speaking fees and taken on an advisory role for American investment giant Blackrock.

Peers would also be forced to back the priorities under the Salisbury Convention, which means that the Lords will not try and vote down government plans mentioned in an election manifesto.

But Mr Corbyn dismissed her argument that she needs a fresh mandate to deliver Brexit, and said it was "extremely interesting" that she had chosen to call an election as the Crown Prosecution Service prepares to decide whether to press charges against a string of Tory MPs over allegations relating to 2015 general election expenses.

European Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas said that "the real political negotiations on Article 50 with the United Kingdom will start after the elections foreseen for June 8".

Labour's Corbyn made clear he'll focus on May's dramatic decision to reverse her position on an early election as a sign she won't keep her promises.

"Had the election been in 2020, we would have been coming up to the most crucial part of the negotiations at the end of the negotiations in what would be starting to be the run-up to a general election", she said. Demmer said Wednesday: "The German government assumes that the negotiations can be continued without disruption".

According to analysts, voters could give Europhile politicians a boost in Britain's upcoming election but the effect will be limited and the prospect of a grand alliance to soften Brexit is improbable. May said that an election will take place in just six weeks' time on June 8, saying it is in "the national interest" to do so.

23% of respondents said they plan to vote Labour. "Now we will be much freer", she told The Sun. "I hope the former will be the case". "We risk a Parliament which is lop-sided in its make-up; which has a big Tory majority", he argued. He added: "If it isn't a triumphant success, it will be to some extent a personal failure".

The research was carried out on Tuesday and Wednesday - after Theresa May announced her intention to go to the country.

Addressing MPs beforehand, May said an early vote would strengthen her hand in dealing both with Brussels and domestic critics seeking to "frustrate the process" of Brexit.

"Why don't you do deals with parties that believe in what you believe - staying in Europe".

A transitional deal would be a temporary arrangement which would be in place from the minute that Britain leaves the European Union at the end of the two-year Article 50 process until an expiry date agreed during the negotiations.
