U.K. Elections - Impact On British Pound
22 April 2017, 01:26 | Terri Saunders
May continues to be the favored choice for prime minister, with 54 percent of people preferring her to Labour's Jeremy Corbyn, who is backed by 15 percent of voters.
May surprised allies, opponents and financial markets on Tuesday when she called a snap election for June 8.

That contradicts one of the Prime Minister's stated goals, which is to end the jurisdiction of the court.

"It's about providing the strong and stable leadership this country needs to take Britain through Brexit and beyond, it's about strengthening our hand in the negotiations that lie ahead, and it's about sticking to our plan for a stronger Britain that will enable us to secure that more stable and secure future for this country and take the right long-term decisions for the future".
However, says Stephen Bush in the New Statesman, the general public "tend to resent snap elections and turnout may drop".
Alex Massie in The Spectator believes the general election will first and foremost be a vote on Scottish independence, saying "May can not win a mandate for herself while then denying a mandate to the party that wins the Scottish portion of this election".
