UK Gov't Calls Snap Election Ahead Of Brexit Talks

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has announced that she is to call an election on June 8, saying the move will strengthen the Conservative Party's position ahead of Brexit talks.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4's Today program, she said: "I want this country to be able to play the strongest hand possible in those negotiations to get the best possible deal because that's in our long-term interests."

"That's what this is about, it's about asking the people to trust me, to trust us in government, to give us that mandate to go, and get that really good deal for the UK."

At the end of March, Theresa May invoked Article 50, triggering the formal two-year process for leaving the European Union. Under the proposed hard Brexit, the UK will leave the EU Single Market and negotiate new trade deals with the EU and other states.
