Corbyn's Labour faces 'decade' in wilderness, says Nun
Now that lawmakers have approved the election, Parliament will be dissolved on May 2.
Conservative Party chairman, Patrick McLoughlin, believes Jeremy Corbyn's refusal to rule out a second Brexit referendum is "yet more evidence of chaos" from the Labour leader.

Curtice said that if May retains the 16 point lead she now holds across an average of polls, she will increase her majority from 40 seats to around 100.
"We respect the result of the referendum, but there still has to be an economic relationship with Europe".
With Ms May seen winning a new five-year mandate and boosting her majority in parliament by perhaps 100 seats, the pound held close to six-and-a-half month highs on hopes she may be able to clinch a smoother, more phased departure from the European Union and minimise damage to the United Kingdom economy.
The Party has been facing the hard task of securing votes from those who did not vote for Brexit in last year's referendum.
Labour was not the only party to lose MPs ahead of the election.
"If people in Scotland want protection against the Tory government, if people in Scotland want an effective, strong opposition...they will only get it from the SNP", she added.
