Brexit - The negotiations will start after UK's elections

May formally notified the European Union on March 29 of Britain's intention to leave, and has said she is confident of reaching a deal on the terms of withdrawal in the two years available. She cited security and economic reasons.

As Britain enters an extremely important period in its political future, various MPs assembled this afternoon to discuss and debate the Prime Minister's recent decision to call a snap election.

"There should be unity here in Westminster, not division": British PM Theresa May.

But Labour MP Gisela Stuart, one of the architects of Brexit as co-chair of Vote Leave, said she would be standing down after 20 years as MP for Birmingham Edgbaston.

Labour veteran Dennis Skinner, one of those who voted against holding an election, told MPs earlier in the House of Commons that May should ban all Tory MPs involved in the alleged election expenses investigation from the 2015 election from the upcoming election.

The UK will being going ahead with its 8 June election after MPs supported the early election with 522 votes to 13.

"The decision facing the country will be clear". "But Westminster is not".

Riding high in the opinion polls, May is seeking to increase her slim majority of 17 in the 650-seat Commons before the battles begin with the European Union over Britain's exit bill and future trade and immigration ties.

Murray accepts Barcelona Open wildcard after early loss in Monte Carlo
At 4-0, one of the service games where I got broken, I didn't play such a good game", Sport24 quoted him as saying. Following the defeat, Murray blamed the defeat on his tactical choices in the clutch moments.

"Every vote for the Conservatives will make it harder for those who want to stop me from getting the job done", the premier told the lower house.

"She can not be allowed to run away from her duty to democracy and refuse to let the British people hear the arguments directly".

"We think that sterling's rally yesterday is vulnerable to a swift reversal, as markets appreciate that the chances of an ultra-hard Brexit also rise with a larger Conservative majority, and investors recoil in response to additional political uncertainty", Tombs writes in a special edition of Pantheon's UK Macro Monitor.

"I am of course concerned about the impact of a United Kingdom general election on the ongoing talks' process in Northern Ireland and I conveyed these when I spoke with the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland".

The leader of the main opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, pressed May in Parliament Wednesday to take part in a televised debate ahead of the election, but May maintained she had no interest in doing so. Britain may still be torn over Brexit, and uncertain about May's course of departure from the European Union, but the British are not about to elect a slow-witted, bearded socialist oddball like Corbyn ahead of a pragmatist like May. Her opaque Brexit agenda will come under ever increasing scrutiny, and she will have to face the ongoing problem of the Scottish National Party.

Corbyn wins only 14 per cent, according to pollster YouGov.

If Conservatives manage to gain a stronger foothold following the election, the Government will have a mandate to push forward the Brexit agenda, which experts say could provide more certainty for investors. But if her victory is anything less than overwhelming, May's snap election could end up dramatically weakening her authority, which would be bad news for her Brexit ambitions.
