    A bit risky with Labour polling at 23% and the public haven't really got to know Corbyn the man yet.

    LIB DEM REVIVAL!

    Pretty such she wouldn't have any role in announcing the death of a royal.

    I may complain but ANYTHING to bring an end the Fixed Parliament Act, which I hate. I like chaotic nature of the timeline of UK elections.

    My favourite suggestion so far is "She's going to release a reggae album"

    Seriously, is it a bad thing? I mean The Conservatives will win, but it's clearly the only way Corbyn's fucking off anytime soon. Let's just get it over with.

    I hope it BACKFIRES quite SPECTACULARLY. I can't imagine there is ANY appetite for another election in the country as a whole

    I have about as much interest as I do in the election for our Metro Mayor.

    If - IF - the Conservatives get voted out and replaced by another party how would this affect Brexit? Would it still go ahead?

    ALL of my University exams have been to the background of General Elections and Referendums. Not fair.

    Article 50 was triggered, but wasn't there a clause that we could take it back.

    Now I'm annoyed all over again that Corbyn doesn't even have a coherent position on Brexit. What a useless cunt.

    I might vote GREEN

    It would be SPECTACULAR if it backfired, but let's face it, it's a MASSIVE foregone conclusion that it won't. It's very clever- they can use the "Teresa is unelected, we owe it to the British public..." line and they have fuck all opposition and extend their time in government despite their dreadful record. Astonishingly clever, if obvious, in fact...

    Unfortunately, we also all know who benefits the most from a politics- and election-fatigue.

    General elections in Germany, France and the UK within 4 months of each other. Crikey.

    It is literally the only thing that could remotely give Labour a chance- a "We will rescind Article 50" policy. He won't, though...

    Me too. I promised I wouldn't ever again after those turncoats went into the coalition, but needs must at the moment, and Labour do fuck all in my constituency anyway...

    Since Cameron won in 2015, the Tories have held every single card and have played them perfectly.

    I expect a low turnout and a huge Tory majority (presumably they'll soak up loads of UKIP support from 2015). The prospect of finally sticking a fork in Corbyn is very appealing, at least.

    Absolutely. Politically they've played it wonderfully. Just a shame they've managed to fuck the country up alongside that...

    It's the one advantage, I guess, getting rid of Corbyn, but the thought of another 5 years of totalitarian Tory Teresa absolutely devastates me...

    It's a different politics post Brexit and it's Lib Dems to comeback time. This could be a flawed part of the Tory plan if the Lib Dem revival happens in any major way. I anticipate a series of mini by election style votes.

    I can only view it as extreme short term pain for long term gain.

    The recent demise of UKIP would be some kind of silver lining.

    Yes, I really hope people can get over the Lib Dem coalition thing. They have to. Hopefully we've had enough of the unfettered Tories now to make them realise.

    Will there still be another one in 2020 or will the 5 year cycle reset?

    There's no way those northern UKIP votes are going back to Labour though, especially since Terri went full-on KICK EM OUT.

    Has this come completely out of nowhere? I've not been following the news for a while now.

    Can we have a sweepstake on what time Corbyn will resign?

    Although I bet he doesn't.
