Early insults fly as MPs clear the way for June polls

21 Avril, 2017, 03:17 | Author: Claudine Rigal

Mrs May said she was concerned that opposition parties would seek to derail Brexit by voting against key pieces of legislation including the Great Repeal Bill, which will provide the legislative authority to take Britain out of the European Union. A two-thirds majority of MPs must agree to a move that will shorten the lifespan of a parliament.

Jeremy Corbyn will on Thursday launch the Labour party's general election campaign with a populist appeal to voters to overthrow a "rigged system" run by a "cosy cartel" of the rich and the powerful.

May has already won approval from Queen Elizabeth for the snap election.

Brexit will dominate the campaign, with May - who took office after David Cameron resigned following the European Union vote - seeking public backing for her plan to pull Britain out of Europe's single market.

But there was deep division over the issues which should decide the election's outcome, with Mrs May casting the poll as an opportunity to secure "strong and stable leadership" for Britain as it forges a new position outside the European Union, while Mr Corbyn said voters should take the chance to make their judgment on the Conservative record on austerity and public service cuts.

Earlier, Mr Corbyn dismissed Mrs May's argument that she needs a fresh mandate to deliver Brexit, and said it was "extremely interesting" that she had chosen to call an election as the Crown Prosecution Service prepares to decide whether to press charges against a string of Tory MPs over allegations relating to 2015 general election expenses. The choice before us is clear: "to trust the people and then let the public decide".

During a special debate in theHouse of Commons, she said it was the "right and responsible" thing to do hold the election now to provide "five years of stability and certainty" and help the United Kingdom prepare for life outside the EU. "Labour is the party that will put the interests of the majority first".

Technically, there are now only two ways to call early elections.

The paper cited polling data from YouGov that suggested the Conservatives were on course to win a majority of 114 House of Commons seats on June 8.

Mr Corbyn said that a Labour government would conduct "responsible" Brexit negotiations to ensure future trading relations with the remaining EU.

May, who reversed her position Tuesday, told leaders there was a "window of opportunity" to hold a poll before negotiations begin in earnest in June in departing from the EU.

In her speech on Tuesday at the door of 10 Downing Street, May made it clear why she wanted an early election.

She said: "At this moment of enormous national significance there should be unity in Westminster, but instead there is division". "The country is together, Westminster is not", she said.

But Ms Richards said she did not believe a potential worsening of the economy to be a factor.

Mr Corbyn said the election was an opportunity for voters to pass judgement on the Tories' record on austerity, cuts to the NHS and schools, child poverty and a crisis in housing.

"We will prove the establishment experts wrong and change the direction of this election", he will say, "because the British people know that they are the true wealth creators, held back by a system rigged for the wealth extractors".
