General election 2017: MPs back plans for 8 June poll

22 April 2017, 01:19 | Anna Nguyen

Mrs May was backed by the House of Commons by a margin of 522 votes to 13, above the two-thirds majority needed and was supported by Labour and the Lib Dems.

The bill passed in both the House of Commons and the House of Lords, leading Miller to threaten the United Kingdom government once again.

In Scotland, voters previous year favored staying in the European Union, compared with overall 52-48 percent British support to depart the organization.

Before holding the election, May must first win the support of two-thirds of the parliament in a vote on Wednesday (April 19).

She told MPs: "There are three things a country needs, a strong economy, strong defence and strong, stable leadership".

In a sign of the key campaign issues ahead, Mrs May traded barbs in the Commons with opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, whose party is deeply divided and languishing up to 20 points behind the Conservatives. "She says it's about leadership, yet is refusing to defend her record in television debates and it's not hard to see why".

As the debate began, former chancellor George Osborne - who has recently been appointed editor of the London Evening Standard - announced he would not be standing for election on June 8.

After months of denying the election would be brought forward from 2020, May performed a U-turn on Tuesday arguing her decision was to strengthen Britain's hand in Brexit negotiations.

"I trust the British public".

Wells Fargo claws back $75M in pay from two former execs
Wells Fargo will claw back an additional $75 million from two former executives implicated in the bank's phony accounts scandal. He hasn't had other pay clawed back, in part because he wasn't closely involved in overseeing the retail unit until recently.


"I genuinely came to this decision reluctantly having looked at the circumstances and having looked ahead at the process of negotiation".

Daniel Kawczynski, who represents the Shrewsbury and Atcham constituency, said that the Prime Minister could not risk entering into negotiations over Brexit with a general election hanging over her. That is in our long-term interest.

"There isn't time to organise a formal progressive alliance", she said.

May, who took office in July after an internal Conservative Party leadership race, wants the election to increase her majority in Parliament and consolidate her power as she faces both pro-EU opposition politicians and hard-core Brexit-backers inside her own party.

Following considerable wrangling over formats, the 2015 election campaign saw one debate featuring Mr Cameron and Mr Clegg alongside Labour's Ed Miliband and leaders of Ukip, the Scottish National Party, Greens and Plaid Cymru, as well as a second debate with the five non-coalition parties and programmes in which Mr Cameron, Mr Clegg and Mr Miliband answered questions but did not debate face-to-face.

With little resistance in Parliament, British Prime Minister Theresa May has secured a surprise election to take place in just seven weeks' time.

The investment manager added: "If the deal the next government negotiates doesn't match up to our current terms, MPs should do what's best for Britain and reject it".

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.
