The prime minister, Theresa May, has called a snap election, to be held on the eighth of July 2017. Despite having repeatedly denying she would do such a thing pretty much right up until the announcement. However, May has shown she has no problem making U-turns or lying if she can get her claws on more power. The PM in an authoritarian move didn't even tell her MP's that she was going to announce a general election, perhaps she was inspired by Irduans power grab in Turkey.

(For more information on that watch our video about him after this video) This shows May believes she is at a high point and is opportunistically trying to grab as big a majority as possible despite the fixed term parliament act which is supposed to stop such a thing. However, as the labour party and the liberal democrats support the election she will be able to get around the fixed term parliament …
