Theresa May today announced her Government's intention to hold an early General Election this year. Her Government currently has a paper thin majority, and it is clear that May will seek a more comfortable majority to push her brutal Brexit agenda.
We cannot allow that to happen. We relish this opportunity to win more seats in Parliament and fight against a brutal Brexit government. This is an opportunity for us to outline clearly our liberal vision for the future of Britain, and an opportunity for us to show who the real opposition to the Tories are.
