Snap election called in the UK

The British Prime Minister’s announced she’ll call for a surprise general election on the 8th of June.

She’ll need the support of two thirds of MPs in a vote in Parliament tomorrow.

Theresa May’s previously said she didn’t want another vote until 2020.

But speaking from Downing Street, she says she’s ‘reluctantly’ changed her mind – because of the challenges of Brexit.

British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn says he welcomes the decision to give people the chance to vote for what he calls ‘ a government that will put the interests of the majority first’.
