There will be a Commons vote on the proposed election on Wednesday. Explaining her U turn on an early election, Mrs May said: "I have concluded the only way to guarantee certainty and security for years ahead is to hold this election."
Commenting on the prime minister’s announcement Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron tweeted, “This election is your chance to change the direction of our country. If you want to avoid a hard Brexit. If you want to keep Britain in the Single Market. If you want a Britain tht is open, tolerant and united, this is your chance.”."
