In this morning’s news. PM May has called a “snap general election” for June 8.
She is assuming that her party will receive a fresh vote of support, to set up the negotiations with the E.U. over the terms of Brexit.
BUT . . .
What if the voters deliver a verdict against Brexit?
What if the UK voters have re-considered last year’s vote and enough of them have changed positions, to make a real difference?
If the Scottish Nationalists run on June 8 on a platform of holding another devolution vote, within a year or so, and get a solid vote of support for that, how could Whitehall stop them?
Has she thought this through, any better than her predecessor did for Brexit?
Our UK peeps, please wade in.
