... Maybe she is going to apologise for the whole McCann charade lasting so long.

And then confirm they've now been arrested and are being flown out to Portugal to face prosecution.....? Very Happy

We`re probably going to war with Russia.

Either that or David Cameron is dead - or Prince Philip is dead.

Nice knowing you all. I'm off back home to build a bunker in the garden and stock up on cans of beans or something.

So you can't trust what she says - going back on her words!! 

They are Believing the polls that they are 21% ahead, I do not believe that for a minute, people are fed up with the cuts etc.  People suffering everywhere, what planet do they live on.

Using the majority vote of the public to say she needs a mandate to secure best possible deal for Brexit........ yeah!  Hoping all those that voted for Brexit will vote Tory.

Anyway as much as I hate the Tories and the cuts - for the time being her and her Brexit department should be left to get on with the divorce - no point in another government taking over half way through. I also think she has the right personality for negotiating.

She is bound to get a mandate - Labour are weak at the moment and Fallon is a dickhead.

I voted Brexit, but couldn't vote Tory whilst the cuts are still in force - I'm an OAP and am happy with my lot, but pity the state of the NHS and all those who've suffered such cruel cuts. And I used to find the election-night TV broadcasts most interesting, but won't this time. Hopefully Theresa will offer another election once Brexit has completed.

Surely a snap election has the same result as the previous one?

I voted Remain in the referendum, and I still want Remain.   Who should I vote for in this General Election to turn the tide ? Shocked Shocked

In fact I don't think it is a tide, more like stopping the tsunami.

I think King Canute thought he could turn the tide bluebell !

The remainers have tried everything to scupper the divorce bluebell but all they could do was slow it down. It can`t change once the people have voted. You may be lucky and get a soft divorce once parliament and the lords have thrown it back and forth.  I am sure Theresa May will make sure the remainers get a lot of the things they want - she will let immigrants stay who are already here, she won`t let the farmers be any worse off, she`ll make sure there`s an agreement for our citizens living abroad and for the scientific community to do swaps with academics abroad. I don`t really understand the bits about trade.   I`m optimistic it will be better for the UK in the long run if they`d just let her get on with it - but they won`t.

P.S. I don`t know why I`m sticking up for her because I hate most of the Tories and the hardships people and services are suffering under them.
