- May announces a general election to ensure “strong leadership” in Brexit negotiations
- Poll date set at June 8th 2017
- Corbyn seemed uncharacteristically amiable and enthusiastic in regards to this announcement.
- SNP’s Nicola Sturgeon remains consistent however, complaining that May is putting the party ahead of the country.
It was announced at roughly 11.10am (UK time) on the 18th of April that there would be a snap election in June 2017. The main two candidates being the Conservative Theresa May and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
This comes at a time when Jeremy Corbyn has seemingly spruced up his act. One would wonder if he knew this was coming, and one would probably be right. Jeremy Corbyn, known for his incredibly sleepy, and boring persona, seems to have been taking some kind of “human training”. He has been noticeably more animated, almost imitating a normal human in some situations.
The first time I was introduced to “new Corbyn”, as he now must be called, was in his Easter Sunday announcement. You could see that his human lessons had been quite successful. He was no longer so droopy eyed and robot like, is this a sign of things to come? Can the newly programmed Corbyn woo the British public? Anyway, more of this in another article.
May seems to have changed her mind on the issue of an election, almost comically, while in Snowdonia on a walking holiday with her husband Phillip. I do not have a source as to how this interaction went but I imagine it went something like this:
Theresa: “Oh Phillip dear, I have just been alerted by my globalist overlords that it’s time to subvert the British public and attempt to dismantle Brexit. I think they’re backing our friend Jeremy, who will be delighted to take over the reigns!”
Phillip: “Oh, that’s marvelous darling! I dare say, we should celebrate!”
Yes, despite most Brits preferring May (who leads Corbyn by 30%) I imagine there may be a few tricks underway.
More on this as we get it.
