Things have just got interesting. If anyone still doubted the tories put party interest before that of the country, today they got their proof. After months of denying that she would call an election, this morning May did just that (although I'm sure this blog won't be the first place anyone will hear that). She obviously thinks that, the polls being as they are, the tories will win, giving May the mandate she craves. Thus this decision reeks of opportunism. After totally fucking the country last year, the tories want our permission to do it some more. The problem is, Labour is currently a shambles. The only hope for us who want to remain part of the EU - part of the world - is to vote Lib Dem. If the opposition is split between Labour and the Lib Dems, the tories will get reelected, brexit will continue, and life will get even worse. I'm thus very worried about what will happen in six weeks' time: could it lead to a new hope, or an even deeper pit?
Things, it would seem, have just got very interesting indeed.
