The prime minister said Britain needed certainty, stability and strong leadership following the EU referendum. There will be a Commons vote on the proposed election on Wednesday.

“I have concluded the only way to guarantee certainty and security for years ahead is to hold this election,” said Mrs May.

Mrs May is leading in the surveys. This week’s YouGov/Times voting puts Conservatives on 44% ahead of Labour – 23%, giving the Tories a 21 point lead.

This is a bad news for Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn as a defeat will ensure his exit from the post. These figures show the lowest voting intention share for Labour since June 2009 when the party was in power and Gordon Brown was prime minister.

The Liberal Democrats are on 12%, UKIP are on 10%, and votes for other parties are at 10% (from 11%).

Theresa May continues to be the favoured choice for best Prime Minister, with 50% of people preferring her to Corbyn. The Labour leader is backed by 14% of voters, whilst 36% don’t know.
