Corbyn set to fight United Kingdom 'rigged system'

May's reticence to cross swords with political opponents confirms that the Tory Prime Minister has not chosen to call a general election because of political strength but of weakness.
Under the terms of the Fixed-Term Parliaments Act, Mrs May must secure a two-thirds majority of MPs to bring the election forward by three years from the scheduled date of May 2020.
"They are under threat from so many different angles - in Scotland from the Scottish National Party; from the Liberal Democrats in the cities; the Conservatives and possibly UK Independence Party in the north". Mrs May's previous steadfast reassurances against calling early elections have seemingly been superseded by greater needs for personal legitimacy and a real mandate for a "hard" Brexit, and should not be viewed as a breakdown of integrity.
Which is surprising, given how appallingly he is polling - in fact, it's probably May's motivation for the election.
A YouGov poll for The Times puts Corbyn's party 24 points behind Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives.
McDonnell who was in the audience for Corbyn's campaign speech in London this morning, was repeatedly asked whether Labour would rule out a second referendum but refused to answer.
"To many, including me, there was a forlorn hope that a reformed and radical Labour party would rise to historic occasion".
Mr S suspects that Corbyn's supporters might be in for a shock come June 8th...
But Mr Corbyn has now ruled out a second vote.

Her suggestion that she will "get out and about and meet with voters" and will be too busy to spare a few hours in debate with Corbyn and others holds no water.
"For the centre left it was a victory which could easily have been demolished by a meaningless and meretricious Labour vote". It is only a Labour Government that will stand up for people on these important issues.
He made only a passing reference to Brexit, widely described as Britain's biggest challenge since World War II, saying he wanted to focus on life after leaving the EU. Perhaps, one might think, Labour had completely failed to anticipate this development and accordingly prepare contingency responses.
The Sun, Britain's top-selling newspaper, splashed the headline "Blue Murder" - a reference to the Conservatives' colour branding and the prospect of Labour losing dozens of seats. The Conservative's parliamentary majority stands at just sixteen, nearly perpetually holding the government hostage to rebel MPs.
"Only two parties can win this election - Labour or the Tories".
"However this is the Labour Party; he is the leader of the Labour Party; and members of the Labour Party, Members of Parliament, candidates [and] rank and file members will fight like hell to advance the Labour cause".
Professor John Curtice, Britain's leading election expert, says that despite May's strong showing in head-to-head opinion polls against Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, a lot of Labour seats are still safe due to their demographics.
While an increased Conservative majority can be predicted with relative confidence, little else is certain.
Sturgeon had pledged to set out her plans for another referendum in the coming weeks, although the snap election will give her a short pause for thought.
