Although recently held polls put the conservative party of the current prime minister of the United Kingdom, Theresa May, ahead of the main opposition Labour party by 21 points, the head of the British government has decided to hold early general elections.
The BREXIT referendum last summer shook the fundamental basis of the modern structure of the country and has led to a complete reform in the state policies and goals, leading the popularly elected Prime Minister Mr. David Cameron to resign in a sign of his disapproval and discontent.
The unconventional means that led to Mrs. May then being elected as his replacement, gave fertile ground for the initiators of the historic withdrawal of the European Union to jeopardize all the commitment and effort she has pledged to the nations decision.
The strong-woman criticized her opposition for being an obstacle in the path she initiated to create the desired popular outcome, claiming: “After the country voted to leave the EU, Britain needed certainty, stability and strong leadership. Since I became prime minister the government has delivered precisely that. The country is coming together but Westminster is not. Labour have threatened to vote against the final agreement we reach. The Lib Dems have said they want to grind the business of government to a standstill. Unelected members of the House of Lords have vowed to fight us every step of the way”.
Instability and renewed confidence
The instability reigning over Westminster and the unwilling factions of the political platform to cooperate, led the head of state to urge the nation to voice their confidence in her or to choose a new “captain for the boat; as she stated: “We need a general election and we need one now. I have only recently and reluctantly come to this conclusion but now I have concluded it is the only way to guarantee certainty for the years ahead”
