MPs to vote on British election

British MPs are expected to approve Theresa May’s plans for a general election on June the 8th.

There’ll be a debate in the Commons later followed by a vote – which needs to a two thirds majority to go through.

The Prime Minister’s said for months there wouldn’t be an election before 2020 – but has changed her mind because of divisions within Westminster.

Former Conservative leader William Hague says if Mrs May was to win the poll – it could help during Brexit talks with Brussels.
