New election pretty much guaranteed as May denies she’ll call one
In the run-up to the last election, Theresa May said:
Let me be clear, I will definitely not – cross my heart and hope to die – be calling another election.
Let me be clear – an election I will not call!
Let me be clear!
CLEAR, CLEAR, CLEAR!
I AM THE CLEAR WOMAN! THEY ARE THE CLEAR MEN! I AM THE WALRUS!
STOP! CLEAR TIME!
Before finally admitting:
We’re having an election. But let me be clear, this was always part of the plan; I’ve never said otherwise.
As May has once more been clear that we won’t be having a snap election, we can probably assume she’ll call one before Christmas.
A fresh election will be problematic for May for a number of reasons:
- She has all the charm of a cheese-grater.
- She has no new policy ideas, and everyone knows that any she pretends to have will end up in the bin – just like her last manifesto.
- Everything is problematic for her. She just isn’t very good at doing things.
She’ll have to call an election whether she likes it or not, though. She said she wouldn’t. And May incorrectly saying she won’t do something is the closest thing you’ll ever get to a straight answer from her.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
