German EU lawmaker hopes for compromise with UK

The election was made official on Wednesday during a rowdy session of the House of Commons, May won the support of 522 lawmakers in the 650-seat parliament for an election on June 8.

Former Treasury chief George Osborne, a leader of the losing campaign to keep Britain in the European Union, says he won't be a candidate in the June 8 elections.

She claimed a large Conservative majority would strengthen the Government's hand in getting a good Brexit deal and provide "strong and stable leadership in the national interest".

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn this afternoon used two of his questions in the House of Commons to attack the government on school funding. Its lawmakers abstained during Wednesday's vote.

Britain is now gearing up for its third general election in seven years, which comes less than a year after the divisive referendum that decided the United Kingdom would withdraw from the EU.

Chase de Vere financial planner Patrick Connolly says while an early election adds some uncertainties, people already see the Conservatives remaining in power and adding more seats in the government.

Labour are now lagging well behind Theresa May's Conservatives as campaigning ahead of the snap June 8 vote gets underway.

Germany's foreign minister has said he hopes that the election will lead to more clarity and predictability in the Brexit negotiations. "We need a general election and we need one now", she declared on Tuesday.

Mr Corbyn said Mrs May's U-turn on her previous insistence that she would not call an election showed she could not be trusted. If the findings of recent polls are borne out, Labour could lose 59 seats and be left with just 173 MPs - the party's lowest tally since 1935. The UK split 52 per cent to 48 per cent in favour of Leaving the EU in 2016, but there is little polling evidence of this division carrying over into party politics, with Ukip support declining since the referendum and the strongly pro-EU Liberal Democrats struggling to make significant inroads in the polls.

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, who is pressing for an independence referendum, said May was making a "huge political miscalculation" that would bolster her Scottish National Party.

If the election goes ahead, parliament would be dissolved on May 3 and the campaign would begin in earnest, just days after European Union leaders hold a special summit to agree a negotiating strategy for Brexit on April 29.

May's strictly conservative vision of Britain with that of the Labour party, which is led by its most left-wing leader to date, and has, while backing the Brexit, promised to offer an "effective alternative" that involves, among other things, pumping more into the National Health Service and welfare, and raising corporation and individual taxes for the well-off.

The senators' letter further details that the action is leaving farmers with hard decisions about the future of their farms. Waivers and exemptions have been "abused greatly", a US senior official told reporters Monday.

And Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood - whose profile received a major boost from her involvement in two of the 2015 broadcasts - said: "Theresa May should be empty chaired if she doesn't show up to any planned TV debates".

The First Minister accused the Prime Minister of trying to "crush" opposition to her Brexit plan.

Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron has launched a staunch defence of gay rights saying "my belief for equality runs through me like a stick of rock", amid criticism over his refusal to clarify whether he thinks homosexuality is a sin.

"We won't be doing television debates", May said, adding that politicians should spend election campaigns "out and about" meeting voters.

May, previously the interior minister, took over as prime minister for David Cameron, who resigned a year ago after voters said Yes to Brexit.
