Labour leader says United Kingdom election 'establishment vs people'

Labour leader says United Kingdom election 'establishment vs people'

Theresa May, who had previously ruled out a general election, said a Conservative victory would make her "stronger" when she "negotiates for Britain with the prime ministers, presidents and chancellors of the European Union".

"She has in recent weeks sounded much more flexible about freedom of movement, much more flexible about the European Court of Justice and she now seems to understand that a transition agreement between Britain and the EU will require Britain to abide by ECJ rulings and continue freedom of movement", he said.

Nearly exactly 20 years since Tony Blair led Labour to the first of three consecutive election victories, the party is languishing in the polls ahead of the June 8 vote.

She added: "The election campaign has only just begun, I'm not taking anything for granted, the result is not certain".

Venezuelan leader to Trump: "'Get your pig hands out of here"
But sanctions so far have stopped short of hitting the oil sector in Venezuela, which is a major USA oil supplier. Trump's administration has repeatedly raised concerns that Maduro is moving toward one-party, authoritarian rule.


"The French are having their general election before detailed negotiations take place and I think the logic is quite compelling".

After meeting the Prime Minister in Downing Street, Mr Tajani said: "To have stability in the United Kingdom is better for us".

On Thursday, she said she plans to stick to her pledge to reduce annual net migration to below 100,000 a year. The move has, in any case, been welcomed by the opposition with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who stated the party would contest the government over its failure to fix the economy and public services. PM May is now an unelected leader, appointed to the role in an internal, Conservative party leadership contest following the post-Brexit resignation of her predecessor David Cameron.

His speech was the first in Labour's election campaign, which started today. To succeed in negotiations with European Union leaders she will need the flexibility to overrule party hard-liners who will oppose any concession on borders and regulation; that would be hard in the current Parliament.

The Labour leader has faced challenges from within his parliamentary team since he won a landslide victory to take the reins following Ed Miliband's departure, but has remained in charge due to his high level of support among its core membership.

With lawmakers having voted by a resounding 522 to 13 to back May's call for an election, the third in a little over two years, the decks have been cleared for the general elections which will predictably be dominated by Britain's vote to leave the European Union less than a year ago.

"If they truly trusted the British people - and wanted to give them a real say over the future direction of this country - then they would have committed to a democratic vote on any final deal", she said.

Would the House really need to vote again on health care?
Early this month the Legislature went into session for two days without being presented a budget bill. Steny Hoyer says that's what happens when the House votes on a bill "before they knew what was in it".
