British Election - June 8

Post by Rogue on Tue Apr 18, 2017 5:42 am

This should be interesting...

LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May called on Tuesday for an early election on June 8, saying the government had the right plan for negotiating the terms of Britain’s exit from the European Union and she needed political unity in London.

Sterling rose against the dollar after May made the surprise announcement outside her Downing Street office.

“I have just chaired a meeting of the cabinet where we agreed that the government should call a General Election to be held on the 8th of June,” May said.

Regardless of Brexit (which is the reason why she's doing this) if she wins she will anihilate the NHS and the education system. The Tories have targeted the disable, the poor, the elderly and the most vulnerable.

Whoever votes for the Tories simply to get Brexit, are heartless people without a brain or without economic problems.

I know I am being very judgemental and harsh, but I look after some of those people that the Tories have hurt the most.

Woke up to this news here this morn.

Ideology Ags. According to the Tories everywhere everything should be "privatised' and no Govt. Minister should ever be held responsible for what happens.

"Broad economic policy guidelines (BEPG)
Under Article 121 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, EU countries must regard their economic policies as a matter of common concern and coordinate them within the Council."
Although the systematic destruction of any decent conditions in the dog-eat-dog BEPGs is non binding in theory, in practice, you may very well find that you are highly likely to get destruction of public services and other neoliberal policies(privatisation, flaying the poor, socialize losses and privatize profits, etc ) regardless of who you vote for or what it is they sold you as a promise.

Once out of the EU people can still elect, according to the anti-democracy in which we live, a government that campains on a flay the poor platform, but at least if somehow a government with a different program gets elected, you get a medium-small chance they will deliver on a different program, instead of virtually no chance within the framework of the EU which is even more anti-democratic. IMO, of course.

Say that again.... I've never seen the UK so unstable!

Plus Trump causing chaos, Putin playing with other countries elections, our beloved Kim Jong Un faking missiles launches, Isis.... etc.... ~sigh~

Never a dull moment Ags. Cuddly Kimmie and his toys and Tree-men-dous Trumpy and his phantom Aircraft Carriers! Theresa May and her NHS Butchers! I have never felt so safe! (sarc)

I remember well the constant tension during the cold war, wondering whether the US and/or Russia would start a nuclear winter for the world......

We are seeing the slow demise of the US Empire. So much money being spent and wasted in futile wars that are without end, will eventually suck the life out of their economy.

The frightening thing is that the US is under the thrall of a group of religious Armageddonists. They believe in the end times and want to hasten it along. Mike Pence is one.

Theresa May has refused to rule out abandoning a 2015 election manifesto pledge not to raise taxes.

Totally agree! I have always thought that ever since she first raised her head in Westminster!!! Woman is a bitch!

Yes, Stirks.... I am praying people will vote for Corbyn... or even Farron, anybody who'll take votes away from that heartless bitch.

May considers herself to be another Mad Maggie "the Butcher" Thatcher!

The Labour party is in disarray with the internal fighting between the Parliamentary bunch thinking that they have to party under their control. Some would even throw the election rather than let Corbyn get in. Time for a big clean out. Dump the rubbish so to speak.

The Blairites are in the wrong party. They should be hooked into the May bunch.

The world is under the grip of the Neo-liberal agenda. The US Empire is also, but as well we have Dominionists like Mike Pence. No sign of them going away easily or soon.
