Theresa May has called for a General Election because ‘the country is pulling together but Westminster isn’t’.
I think she lives on a different planet to me!
My suspicion is that the CPS has informed her that the election expenses cases (where they unfairly targeted LibDem MPs) are likely to result in her losing 12 MPs (and her majority after the by elections). Or she needs to go now before the consumer gets hit in the pocket by rising prices as a result of the Brexit folly.
Either way we are ready for her. We mustn’t lose sight of the NYCC elections and the Reith by election too.
But we gained 5000 new members yesterday including 5 in the Constituency. More are sure to follow as the reality sinks in.
