General Election

The General Election is a die cast into the wind. A risk that has the potential of failing. PM Theresa May cynically u-turns away from her commitment to not dissolve Parliament before 2020.

The leaders of the opposition parties fail to take the opportunity to overturn Brexit, but say they are “committed to the will of the people”. The fact that the General Election is the opportunity for the will of the people to be expressed, now, in 2017 and the lack of an alternative view that the referendum result of 2016 is no longer current seems to have passed them by.

If someone recognises they have a constituancy by uniting the majority of Labour MPs and the Liberal Democrats and Greens, they could capture the moment and win the election. 48% of people do not agree with Brexit and when it continues to be a Hobson’s choice someone should stand against it.
