Politicians weigh in to slam or welcome early election : Morning Star

POLITICIANS of all shades have weighed in on the snap general election called by PM Theresa May yesterday.

Communist Party leader Robert Griffiths said that the unelected PM had called the election because she was standing on shaky ground and had “no mandate for five more years of austerity, privatisation and war.”

Ms May had been on the losing side of the EU referendum last June, and next month would be time to give the Tories another election shock, he said.

Labour’s shadow home secretary Diane Abbott said Ms May had decided to “cut and run” ahead of Brexit negotiations and predicted an unpleasant campaign under the management of spin-doctor Lynton Crosby, the man behind the dirty campaigning for Zac Goldsmith when he ran against Labour’s Sadiq Khan in the London mayoral election.

Mr Khan said: “I will be fighting hard for every Labour vote over the coming weeks — a Labour government is in the best interests of all Londoners and the whole country.”

Green Party co-leader Caroline Lucas welcomed an early vote at a time when “Britain is at a crossroads” and promised that the Greens would present a “bold, positive vision for a different kind of Britain.”

  1. I don’t’ think Corbyn is behind the polling rating anywhere near as much as Theresa thinks he is.
    That’s the trouble with bought and paid for polls, it’s rigged in favour of their paying masters.

    Theresa obviously believes her own parties never ending lies and propaganda.

    And with gods will (peace be upon him lol) let’s hope it all rebounds on her ass. And we get rid of the arrogant Tory fickers for good.

  2. May is completely deluded. She thinks she’s going to convert the North of England and Scotland, and have them vote Tory.

    She’s got as much chance of flying to the moon on a dustcart than that ever happening.

  3. Former Prime Minister Tony Blair has said voters should pick candidates from whichever party is prepared to hold Theresa May’s Government to account over Brexit.

    He said “unique circumstances demand a unique response” and that “this should cross party lines”, with many speculating he will campaign alongside the Liberal Democrats ahead of the June 8 vote.

    According to The Telegraph, Senior Liberal Democrats have “confirmed” Mr Blair “could” join forces with Lib Dem leader Tim Farron to campaign against Brexit at the 2017 general election.
