BREAKING NEWS: General Election Passed For June 8th

Posted on:   Posted by:

Theresa May’s unexpected call for a snap election was backed by MPs today.

The House of Commons endorsed the PM’s plan for a June 8 poll by a massive margin of 522 to 13.

Under the terms of the Fixed-Term Parliaments Act, the Prime Minister needed to secure at least a two-third majority of MPs to make her plan become a reality.

The vote came after George Osborne announced that he intends to quit as an MP.
