British PM Theresa May makes a surprise call for early election “to win stronger Brexit mandate”
This is attempting to wriggle out of it and allow the woman to take the Party fall.
they already have the mandate for it, and begun the paperwork, they need to work out the details
as they were already elected to do, not waste more money and cause more time delay

that’s one way to not deal with the situation and Roman Circus it.

what happens if the election goes the other way?

    Stop interfering in other countries affair’s… It was their own families that turned on them.

    that does not make it okay, and America, the UK, and other nations have already condemned this action, even as they prepare for it internally. Otherwise, We’ve Forgot what we told people what we went to war for in Europe those times we were the cannon fodder, eh.

     no…it doesn’t make it right and speaking out is correct..however the USA use it as a excuse to send troops or interfere…and that is not ok
  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo
    which doesn’t have anything to do with Canada condemning and taking action. America has interfered with many nations and is the modern era Rome Empire. This is where the world is looking to Canada for moral authority

  • Nina Tryggvason's profile photo

    : D it’s OK.. I do world news..but it’s important to understand the USA.. As it effect’s all of us

    yes. I remember when Gorby disappeared those three days, I thought that was political terror, and Trump is like that every day… frog in water at a boil and turning to steam really. also blander than chicken.
The royal duo will be in Canada from June 29 to July 1, travelling in Ontario, Nunavut and the Ottawa area, where massive celebrations are planned for Canada Day.
