A record low turn out at the general election would send a clear message to the Westminster parasitic political elites - a plague on your house as they all share the same political home and there is no fundamental choice between the parties.Hubris is waiting in the wings for May and she shows herself to be very dim in actually basing her cynical decision on opinion polls of all things!
May was a continuation of Cameron,there was no break, no justification for seeking a mandate for herself,she was a Remainer like him and it was business as usual so the mandate seeking argument does not fly. No this was pure politicking and the public sense it and will probably punish her with a small majority hardly bigger than her present one - or with a hung parliament. There is a very real risk that she will be hoist on her own Heathite peturd.
An opportunistic move that could backfire spectacularly and unite all May's opposition to bring about her downfall. It will be Brexit Revisited but with the opposite result -this is the danger and I think it is a massive miscalculation on her part born of cynicism.The election will be a de facto referendum re run bringing out all the divisions when the country needs to get on with the job of getting out of the EU. Imagine a hung parliament and what that will do to Brexit.This is an unconscionable act of gross irresponsibility.
