BBC saying May to call election 8 June.  Those poll numbers are just too darned attractive for her, I guess.

Your move Tim Farron, that's 48% of the electorate that should throw themselves behind you if you campaign on a promise to revoke Article 50.

Ooh, shiny new forum. Literally got out of bed with a surprise erection to find a surprise election. Wonders never cease.

Should be quite straightforward. The Socialist Workers Party and the rest of the brain dead Marxists will make it an easy decision on who to vote for. Then the dummies will come out, masks over faces, protest marches etc etc... Yawn.

The hashtag #ToriesOut is already trending... yawn. Go on Lib Dems, actually do something useful with your two months. I didn't even know who Tim Farron was until I looked it up. Most UKIP voters will have gone back to the Tories by now, so I don't think there's going to be much change in the political landscape.

Absolutely disgusting comment.

I pray you can't vote.

UKIP was always a Trojan Horse for the Tories.

Agree but the timing of this is interesting. Nearly 50% of the country voted to remain so that's 50% (maybe less so in her own party) who won't be backing May. There's probably even a few more remainers now after recent months. If a vote for a lame duck like Corbyn (or an alternative Tory candidate) is seen as a vote for remain then May is pretty much screwed. 

Maybe that's ultimately what she wants? Voted out before she has to deliver this total crock of shit?

I hope people are smart enough to vote for the biggest Tory landslide in history and don't go and F things up by voting for corBIN or any of these other pro EU LOSERS.

It wouldn't just be May screwed. The UK would be screwed.

Those moneysupermarket.com advertising royalties are really going to your head. You're going all right-wing.

I'm just gonna look after this one for posterity.
