I did predict it many pages ago... :P

It's monumental though! We could see the political landscape in the UK change beyond all recognition. People might vote tactically to scupper Brexit and we could see some pretty weird results come through.

I agree, I can't see a viable alternative at the moment.

Mind you... Brexit... Trump...

Not necessarily. Who will the 48% of Remainers vote for? Not Tory, that's for sure. This is probably more of a second referendum than it is a General Election.

I expect the Lib Dems to do well, which in turn will take Tory votes away...now that's interesting in the constituencies where Labour only just lost. This is a bit of a gamble for her.

If she wins, but with a similar amount of seats, as now, that's her gone. On paper, yes, it's a landslide, but these are funny times.

She is now saying the election is because Brexit may be damaged because of opposition parties. The party most divided on Europe has always been the Tories. May actually was on the remain side in the referendum but don't mention that eh Prime Minister.

I don't think it's as clear cut as that. There are an awful lot of Remainers who will vote for the Lib Dems. Tory Remain constituencies could fall to them quite easily because of that. That said, a lot of Labour seats should go Tory, because they voted Brexit!

What price will you give me on a minority coalition between Labour, Lib Dems and SNP? Of course, it could also be a Tory landslide (he said, covering all the bases...). :P

Big odds. Not sure off hand but May is now 1/14 to be the next pm.

I'm willing to bet that the EU establishment will use any means possible to get the electorate behind Macron- they will be collectively bricking it if Le Pen gets anywhere near Elysee Palace.
