Would the Tories REALLY call a snap election if Theresa May’s ‘Chequers plan’ was voted down?

Theresa May: Will Brexit bring her down?

The Sunday Times called This Writer a Holocaust denier, so we can’t trust its news-reporting skills at all.

It seems unlikely that Mrs May would call a snap election if she lost the vote on the ‘Chequers plan’ – she is far too desperate to keep power for its own sake.

And Emily Thornberry called for a general election if the plan failed at the vote, during the BBC’s new Politics Live show yesterday (September 3). If anything can be guaranteed to put Mrs May off the idea, that would.

The same show also discussed the People’s Vote campaign for a new referendum.

But its conclusions seem pointless as Mrs May has point-blank refused to entertain the possibility.

So, based on her record she’ll probably announce either a fresh referendum or a snap election immediately after a loss on the ‘Chequers plan’, then.

Theresa May’s aides have discussed a snap general election if her Brexit plan fails, it has been reported.

The Prime Minister’s political team spoke with civil servants about whether to call an election if her Chequers deal is voted down in the House of Commons, according to the Sunday Times.

It came as the Prime Minister ruled out a second EU referendum in her strongest terms yet.

The PM has been rattled by the success of the People’s Vote ­campaign to reverse Brexit.

    But she’s in this for the long term!
    She won’t be calling an Election, no t after last time. She got her fingers so badly burnt, I’m surprised that she has any hands left.

      I actually think she’s in a tough spot especially as majority of us don’t believe in her in anyway. Brexit, Russian debacle & her own party collecting signatures openly. Not looking good for her.

      1. Zippi

        Aye, she is but she made life difficult for herself by trying please all of the people. She says that she’s in it for the long term and like I said, after the debacle of the last election, I can’t imagine her going anywhere near it. I’m not sure how much public appetite there is for one, either. I know that there is much hype about a so-called people’s vote (what other votes are, I don’t know) but this is coming from people with an agenda. I really don’t think that the public, at large, is in the mood for yet another polling exercise, at least, not until we’ve left the E.U. and we have some idea of where this ship is sailing.

    Our local Tory MP is having his “battle bus” spruced up and serviced, apparently.

    Time to get our party ready too?

    These evil Tories are absolutely determined to cling on to power come what may. I suspect they will put off any election until after they have corruptly gerrymandered the constituency boundaries.

    Why on earth would May be “rattled” by a few thousand people agitating for what she would secretly love to be able to do, she is a remainer if you chopped her head of there would be the EU flag surrounded ny the words I love EU goinig all the way through.

    The problem is that Britain has a crisis about brexit, because if Corbyn win a snap election, he will not be able to count on his MPs because the majority is still blairits, therefore the left need to replace them before any general election.

  6. Tim

    If the push came to shove the Tories rebels would back down and do nothing as usual – they’re nothing but spineless cowards
