Theresa May: No More General Elections

Theresa May: No More General Electionsby 👨‍💻 Simon Baxendale

Bored of Brexit yet? British or not, the UK’s upcoming exit from the European Union has been nothing but capturing headlines for the past few months, and with the deadline for exit ever-looming this coming spring, Prime Minister Theresa May has been sitting at the top of press mastheads for some time. She has recently spoken out against the EU for their ‘lack of respect’ during negotiations, and has advised in conversation that she ‘trusts’ President Trump – but beyond these soundbites, it seems that talk of yet another general election for the UK has travelled all the way to the top.

May infamously called for a ‘snap’ general election in 2017 which resulted in the Conservatives losing considerable power in the country. The upshot of the final results was the Prime Minister consulting with the DUP to prop up the majority. It was an event which helped to derail May’s image with many ministers and voters, and for a time, helped to bolster Jeremy Corbyn’s opposition party. Now, however, May is fairly steadfast on the fact that there won’t be another vote any time soon, especially over Brexit.

Speaking to press en route to the United Nations General Assembly, May advised that an early general election, or another snap vote, would ‘not be in the national interest’. “What I’m doing is working to deliver a good deal with Europe in the national interest – it would not be in the national interest to have a general election.” However, this hasn’t stopped some chatter at Downing Street, even though many Conservative ministers are dead set against the idea of another vote. Once again, May’s party appears divided on another issue.

Jeremy Corbyn has publicly stated that he believes another general election for the UK will help to ease issues surrounding Brexit, particularly at a time where May’s most recent offer to the EU was outright rejected – a plan which reportedly resulted in high-profile ministers Boris Johnson and David Davis to outright leave May’s Cabinet altogether. To say that May’s backwards-and-forwards with the EU is causing a bit of a stir in Parliament may well be an understatement.

However, the Prime Minister remains confident that a fair deal for the UK will be sought – she has remained resistant to a Canadian-style system after Brexit, however, and is pushing for the idea of a ‘pro-business Britain’. Let’s see!
