Why do we need this election?

Date Filed:  Thursday, April 27, 2017

We need an election to strengthen the Prime Minister’s hand in the crucial negotiations with the EU that are about to get underway.

At the moment, the Government only has a very small majority in Parliament. In recent weeks, Labour, the Liberal Democrats, the SNP and unelected members of the House of Lords have all threatened to vote against whatever deal Theresa May does.

This division at Westminster risks making these negotiations, which are so important for the future of our country, much more difficult - if the EU believes there is a chance Parliament might still block Brexit, it is much less likely to offer us a good deal.

We need to put an end to this uncertainty and only an election can do that.
