Tories lead over Labour reaches 24 points in latest poll

21 April 2017, 01:28 | Taylor George

Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn have kicked off their General Election campaigns, just hours after MPs voted in favour of a snap poll on 8 June.

A female prime minister calls an election when the Opposition is divided, squabbling over policies and led by an unpopular socialist who's prompted some lawmakers to jump ship.

At this moment of enormous national significance there should be unity here in Westminster, but instead there is division.

The governing Conservative Party now has a narrow majority of 17 seats in the House of Commons. Mr Corbyn accused the government of "broken promises" on health, education and the economy during its seven years in office.

He said voting Labour was "the only way to remove Theresa May from office".

The political parties sparred during the debate, despite backing on the snap election vote from the Labor and Liberal Democrat parties.

The British Parliament approved a snap general election on Wednesday, even though general elections weren't due for another three years. "May heads for election landslide" was the front-page headline in Wednesday's edition of The Times newspaper.

However, it was later reported that at least 44 ISIS militants and four key leaders of the group were killed in the bombing. A security officer was quoted saying "13 Indian Daesh militants were also among those killed".

BC candidates highlight health care, economy as election continues
The analysis does not include the NDP's revenue assumptions or 40 additional uncosted promises, de Jong said in a statement. Liberal leader Christy Clark brushed off questions about the tactic, directing reporters to speak with her party.

"It is critical that in going into the most significant negotiations in this country for a generation that the Prime Minister has as strong a hand as possible".

Labour's top ranks convened an emergency meeting after Mrs May's announcement on Tuesday, where Mr Corbyn told MPs he did not underestimate the task ahead, but "let's get out there".

Meanwhile Jeremy Corbyn is resisting Mrs May's efforts to make Britain's exit from the European Union the defining issue of the election, insisting the poll instead gives voters a chance to pass judgement on the Conservatives' record on austerity and public spending cuts.

Under the terms of the Fixed-Term Parliaments Act Mrs May needed to secure at least a two-thirds majority of MPs to make her plan become a reality. "I am stepping down from the House of Commons - for now", he wrote in a letter to his constituents.

But for Scotland's first minister, Nicola Sturgeon, the move was a "huge political miscalculation" that could help the Scottish National Party's efforts to hold an independence vote. "If the SNP wins this election in Scotland and the Tories (Conservatives) don't, then Theresa May's attempt to block our mandate to give the people of Scotland a choice over their own future when the time is right will crumble to dust", she said.

The Prime Minister is set to include pledges that will lock party members and peers into backing her stance as the United Kingdom withdraws from the European Union. May has been insisting until days ago that she had no intention of calling an early election.

Blair, who won three general elections as the former leader of Labour Party, said in statement on Wednesday that May wanted to force the final European Union deal upon the people regardless of how good or bad it might be and that she would seek to suppress any opposition through a landslide victory in the upcoming vote.
