Despite consistent Downing Street claims in recent months that Theresa May wouldn’t call an early general election, we believed it likely that she would, if only because of the persistent strong Conservative leads over Labour in major opinion polls (currently around 20%).
The election will be on June 8, a little over seven weeks away. We shall not use our limited resources in fielding candidates for the election. It will take years of campaigning efforts – on the street and elsewhere – to raise the awareness of large numbers of voters about the issues we campaign about.
We were planning to launch our street campaigning on July 8, giving us almost three years before the 2020 general election. Following today’s announcement we may still launch it on the same day, giving us five years before the June 2022 general election.
Onwards and upwards!
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
