Assuming that she gets her motion through the House of Commons tomorrow, that is correct. After June 8th, the following General Election, as per the Fixed Term Parliaments Act, will be on the first Thursday in May 2022.Ali272 wrote:So there won't be any election in 2020, right? the next one would be in 2022?

That wasn't a rollback. The highest court in the land gave its judgment on the requirements of Brexit and the government complied with the judgment.UKBALoveStory wrote: Brexit Parliament approval
What your duties are in power varies from person to person. In a conversation with another person, admittedly from a different country with a different political philosophy, their view was that the duty of the person in charge is to get results that the populace want. Provided they stay within the law and alter the law legally, what matters, in that point of view, is results, not how you get them. That philosophy differs significantly from a Western liberal perspective. But you can see that there is more than one way to look at duties of those in power.UKBALoveStory wrote: When you are in power, it is your duty to make sure you take everyone on board.
Respect works both ways. The minority must be treated with respect. At the same time, the minority must also respect the wishes of the majority and accept that the country is governed with the will of the majority, even if that is what the minority does not want. If the minority does everything it can to frustrate the will of the majority, it could be argued that they forfeit their respect as well.UKBALoveStory wrote:Even if you have 99% majority, you still treat the remaining 1% with respect.
Funnily enough, I have followed PMQs for years (including before my immigration; I have studied political science) and I think she does a damned good job of them, compared to other Prime Ministers (since and including Blair). It helps (or maybe not) that she is opposite Jeremy Corbyn, who is less than effective. But she is quite robust with the SNP's Angus Robertson, for instance.UKBALoveStory wrote:Look at how she answers questions in PM Q&A session.
This last 2 para are so much contradictory. How can you trust someone who applied discriminatory policies with ever increasing exorbitant immigration fees just because she could do but never had balls to do with other section like EEA? (Check current ILR fee now)secret.simon wrote:The sheer audacity of the timing (after starting the Brexit process, but before negotiations have even begun) of the move to go to the country is breathtaking. Whatever you may say of her policies, as a politician, she is not just good, she is brilliant. She is a Prime Minister in a way that Cameron never was. Had she been Prime Minister at the time of the Referendum and had she been convinced of the Remain arguments, I doubt we would have had a Leave decision.
As Home Secretary, she made my immigration journey difficult, with increasing salary requirements et al. But as a citizen, in these difficult times, I want the damned best leader I can get. And of the range that we have now, she undoubtedly is TINA (There Is No Alternative).

Even if agree with you,where have you see any actions from her? so far, I have just seen her talking (without any vision) and no actions. You ask her any question and you never get a straight answer. All she has to say "we are working for the best deal possible." OR "Brexit means Brexit" - Nothing else really.secret.simon wrote: As I mentioned in my earlier post, the global trend is towards leaders with less talk, more action.
So far Labour has said that they won't join a progressive alliance with the other non-Conservative parties.In this respect, it should be noted that Britain is no longer a nation divided, as it was last June, between the “52- and 48-percenters.” More recent polls suggest that a large majority of 69 percent want to proceed with Brexit while only 21 percent want to overturn the result.
