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.
The Lib Dem leader predicted that Labour will lose "dozens and dozens" of seats on June 8, and said that the only threat to Conservative MPs came from his party. She held a meeting with European Parliament President Antonio Tajani.
Bolton North East is a held by Labour's Sir David Crausby, who has a majority of 4,377, and is being targeted by the Conservatives.
And Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood - whose profile received a major boost from her involvement in two of the 2015 broadcasts - said: "Theresa May should be empty chaired if she doesn't show up to any planned TV debates".
During the speech Corbyn repeatedly took pot shots at what he described as the "establishment" - the elite, the City, tax dodgers and much of the media - who believed that electoral success was only possible if their rules were played by. All said and done, however, whatever be the outcome of the election, Brexit is a reality from which there is no going back. How can a man that cannot even united his own party and gain the trust of his own MPs be trusted to unite the nation at a time when it's more divided more than ever. That contradicts one of the Prime Minister's stated goals, which is to end the jurisdiction of the court.

'If I were Southern Rail or Philip Green, I'd be anxious about a Labour Government.
It comes after shadow chancellor John McDonnell on Wednesday said the Government should "put the deal to Parliament and possibly to the country overall" and Mr Corbyn dodged a question on the issue in his first keynote speech of the campaign.
"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".
