May 4th General Election?

Could it happen?

The possibility of a General Election on the 4th May is now being openly discussed, with the Labour Party on a war footing and a number of Conservative MPs seeking to persuade the government to go for a snap election.

With Labour tanking in the polls and Theresa May facing significant opposition both on Brexit and issues such as grammar schools as well as the SNP push for a referendum in Scotland, there is clear logic to hold an election sooner rather than later.

The usually cautious Prime Minister is said to be dead against the idea however.

Nigel Farage is the latest big figure who has said that May should call an election to drain the swamp. We agree. Time to empty the Westminster swamp of its pro-EU remnants and push on united behind Brexit.
