I reckon the Tories will be pretty much wiped out in Cornwall, with the LibDems picking up the seats. I doubt it will be the only place, so on that basis I imagine the LibDems will back her in any Commons vote. It makes sod all difference to the SNP, who have pretty much all the seats they can get, and that isn't going to change much either. I imagine they'll abstain. So May will need a large number of Labour MPs to back her call for an early election. With the Nazty Party 21% ahead in the polls, how many will want to risk their jobs? I think she'll be lucky to get that 2/3 majority she needs to dissolve Parliament & go to the country.

The Liar Carmichael was on BBC news, the libs are well up for it, they support it, they will vote for it, and they are staggering hypocrites.

This is good news. It means Tory government is guaranteed until 2022, rather than 2025.

Labour will vote for an early election to get rid of Corbyn they can then think about fighting the err 2022 one?. 2022 really does sound like a long way away

Lib Dem's should get into double figures, SNP bound to lose a few seats (they can't win anymore) and Labour if they are lucky will get 100 seats.

Another 3 months blown on the brexit negotiations countdown, only ones who will do well out of this is May

Just like Cameron, May is a lightweight.
Bring on Boris.

Who will win them from SNP?


Labour and Conservatives, if anyone. There are a couple of juicy marginals.

I don't see how having a bunch of spiteful, nasty bastards in charge is ever a good thing

Tories most likely, if you have all the seats you can only lose them

Corbyn can only do better than people expect him to do, he will just be called a terrorist lover and basically May will ignore anything he says

And I'd imagine a Tory win would push Scotland towards that second independence referendum. If Labour do lose badly, and it looks as if they will, Scotland is looking at a Tory government for a good while. It would be pretty ironic that the Tory Party should be the one to oversee the break-up of the UK.
