"She's called this election, in spite of promising not to, and in spite of the fact that she has an overall majority, in order to get a bigger majority so as to sideline her own scumbag rebels."
With labour nothing but a has been party it would be a stupid, incompetent prime minister that did not call a snap election in the present circumstances.
The aftermath will be the interesting time. With such a short lead time the 20% that can be assed to vote will have to think for themselves instead of taking their orders from whatever daily comic they read.
Not much time to spin and weave fairy stories this time around.
I anticipate more than a few applecarts being upset, with potential surprises in Scotland. It also gives an excuse to kick brexit a little further down the road.
