Brexit reality: They know they won't be able to win in 2020. This gives them till 2022. But I doubt that's enough. Democracy?

With no effective opposition she will win easily. She has chosen her moment well.

So the next election will be a Labour leadership election on the 9th June? This could be a bloodbath.

Labour really needs to start again anyway. They have lost direction. But yes, we are probably going to have to deal with whatever May et al think is good for the country for some time to come.

If they're stupid.

They should be doing it now to have ANY hope at all.

No chance with the convoluted system they have to adhere to, they wouldn't even have got a list of candidates sorted out by then.

She's proved herself a liar :

September 4th 2016
Quote:
The Prime Minister has ruled out calling a snap general election before 2020 to try and ensure "stability".

It comes after speculation Theresa May would take advantage of her poll lead over Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to try and bolster her fragile majority in the House of Commons.

However, in her first major interview since taking office, Mrs May said: "I'm not going to be calling a snap election.

"I've been very clear that I think we need that period of time, that stability - to be able to deal with the issues that the country is facing and have that election in 2020."
Prime Minister Theresa May Rules Out General Election Before 2020

However, I can quite see why she wants Corbyn out of the way and how much more comfortable she'll feel with a more Conservative leader of the opposition

I sort of feel sorry for Corbyn.

Just joking.
