The trump Russian tension is a bluff, he could start a war with North Korea though. Through twitter. They’re going to do a nuclear test to provoke the orange eejit into action. I would be very nervous if I lived in Seoul.
Despite all the bluster the Yanks don’t like bombing people who actually have nukes.
Trump will get a bullet, literally, from within if he goes near the nuke button.
Theresa May to make a statement at 11:15 in Downing St. Speculation she’s going to call a snap election other speculation it’s a party political matter but huge (Resignation on health grounds has been suggested)
Theresa May to make an announcement from No 10 v shortly, lectern in place. Expected to announce General Election, but other rumours inlcude health issues and there’s always the crazy stuff. Live on all news channels.
General election announced in UK, June 8th. The polls show Labour trailing badly.
Cue Charlie Flanagan making an announcement, that he’s watching developments…
Shrewd move, Labour are in disarray, The tories will sweep in with a huge majority. Lim Dems will make big gains but not enough to stop the tories.
That’s Labour in England fucked
Just like our Labour Party.
Still won’t be Corbyn’s fault though…
May needs 2/3 majority in Commons tomorrow to actually call the election - she expects to get Labour MP’s to support the call for a Gen Election
Charlie Flanagan, the man that watches. Very very carefully.

It's almost as if they want to get an election out of the way before the consequences of Brexit start to become apparent— Robert Harris (@Robert___Harris) April 18, 2017

Harris is bang on the money
If the opposition turn this into a second referendum on Britain’s exit from the EU, it could backfire badly on Theresa May.
Labour won’t because Corbyn is a Brexiteer in reality. Huge chance for the Lib Dems though. Constantly protray themselves as a Anti Brexit Party
i think she might be realising what a clossal f**k up brexit is.
Correct. This is all about getting an extra two years in power. Next election wasn’t due until 2020 at which stage the Clusterfuck of Brexit will be well apparent. This way they stay in power until 2022
Plus with an election win under her belt, she has a mandate to tell the ukippers in her party where to go.
