General election UK Parliament approves Theresa May's snap vote

Theresa May will reportedly include her Brexit negotiating priorities in the Conservative General Election manifesto to lock Remain-backing Tory MPs and the House of Lords into backing her stance.

May meanwhile headed to the northern English town of Bolton to promise "the strong and stable leadership this country needs to take Britain through Brexit and beyond".

That term could only be curtailed if the Commons voted with a two-thirds majority for a snap election, or if it passed a motion of no confidence in the government.

Anne Richards, chief executive of investment manager M&G Investments, said she thought the election move was due to the timing of Brexit talks, not a "potential squeeze" on real incomes.

May told the Commons an election was necessary to ensure "stability and certainty" for the country.

Asked if her manifesto would guarantee that in 2020 the United Kingdom would be clear the European Court's jurisdiction and EU free movement, she said only that United Kingdom will be ensuring "we negotiate the best possible deal".

Mr Corbyn retorted: "We welcome the general election but this is a Prime Minister who promised there wouldn't be one, a Prime Minister who can not be trusted".

She said that waiting until 2020 would mean the "most sensitive" part of the two-year Brexit negotiations would come during the run-up to an election.

May had previously said categorically that the next general election would be held as scheduled in 2020.

"The future of its leader Jeremy Corbyn is also at stake", he said.

Why the weekly FEC meeting did not hold - Presidency
The Presidential spokesman also dismissed insinuations of health-related problems, saying "that will not be fair". He looked at the agenda for the meeting and decided that the vice president should preside.


The Labour leader said it was a "chance to vote for a Labour government that will put the interest of the majority first".

The Labour leader will say "powerful people" do not want him to win and will vow to "prove the Establishment experts wrong and change the direction of this election". She made an unexpected announcement on Tuesday that she would seek an early election less than halfway through her government's five year-term.

May had repeatedly ruled out seeking to hold a snap election.

If she can extend her parliamentary majority, May will be able to silence critics who have opposed her own policies, not just on Brexit but also tax and education.

During the weekly session of Prime Minister's Questions in the House of Commons, May accused opposition MPs of trying to thwart the Brexit process. The survey showed the Tories on 44% with Labour trailing on just 23%.

Labour's rating is the lowest recorded in a YouGov survey since 2009.

Germany's foreign minister has said he hopes that the election will lead to more clarity and predictability in the Brexit negotiations.

Leader of the opposition Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn was among those calling for a debate.

While snap elections are a gamble, it looks like May's Conservative Party will win big on June 8.

"We won't be doing television debates", May said, adding that politicians should spend election campaigns "out and about" meeting voters.
