Of course, Theresa is smiling. That's what one in her position occasionally has to do at an "important" opportunity. But she won't show her mind. In fact, I truly believe, that she was already preparing for SY to start an investigation, when the McCs got wind of it and DEMANDED it. Pre-emptive, as always ...

I don't trust Theresa May in any way ( McCann case et al, she knows what happened, in my opinion). I just hope, Andrea Leadsom wins, with a bit of luck, although can't see it myself.

the whole thing is a set up. May is the Home Secretary responsible for the immigration fiasco that many see to be the main factor in Brexit winning(not IMO tho.) and Andrea is a banker .......that's the ones we hate most. Now who are we going to choose????

99% of the men here are hunters, as soon as the season is open they shoot on everything that moves. Sometimes they accidentally shoot each other. How sad ... :-(

Yep, and she certainly would never be voted in in an election with that policy.  She has cooked her goose.

Chirpy - should this be on the haunting thread?

Yes I agree we now need to have a General Election. If so, I wonder what would happen here in Scotland. I've asked a few friends but no-one seems to know. Anyone?

Firstly its unlikely that there will be a general election because a) we now have fixed term parliaments so early elections aren't allowed and b) the boundary changes, which will massively benefit the Tories and make it almost impossible for anyone else to be elected haven't happened yet. However, if there is a general election it will happen in Scotland as well. Where's the confusion over Scotland coming from?

It is however not impossible even if it is highly unlikely.

Early elections possible, but MPs need to agree

Lord Norton of Louth, an expert in government, has recently lamented that this is still misunderstood, even by political junkies. He points out that an early election can be triggered only if:

two-thirds of the House of Commons vote for it; or
a simple majority of MPs (more than half of those voting) passes a specifically worded motion expressing no confidence in the government. In this case, the election can be avoided by a new or reconfigured government securing a vote of confidence within 14 days.

Thanks Chirpy and AndyB.
@ AndyB, the confusion with Scotland is that the SNP have been elected here for the next five years, and by the looks of it nothing will change. It's just wishful thinking on my part
that a General Election would be on the cards and things might just improve up here.
