The UK would be welcome back in EU

The Prime Minister said the only way to "guarantee certainty and stability for the years ahead" was to seek support from the public for her decisions.

May needs two-thirds of parliament to agree to the early polls, and MPs will vote on whether to grant May's wish after deliberations on Wednesday.

Votes in France in April and May, and in Germany in September, have the potential to reshape the political landscape around the two years of Brexit talks with the European Union expected to start in earnest in June.

British lawmakers have, as expected, voted in favour of the snap election proposed yesterday by Prime Minister Theresa May, setting the date for June 8.

One of the key reasons cited by Mrs.

May's Conservatives now hold 330 of the 650 seats in the House of Commons. May greater authority to pursue a Brexit agreement.

The paper cited polling data from YouGov that suggested the Conservatives were on course to win a majority of 114 House of Commons seats on June 8. They're quite right I don't.

Defending the measure, Mrs May told MPs there was a "window of opportunity" to hold a poll before Brexit negotiations began in earnest in June and that the country needed "strong leadership" to make a success of the process.

The remaining 27 European Union countries will be asked to endorse Tusk's guidelines at a summit on April 29.

Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails launch mass hunger strike
Qadoura Fares, the head of the Palestinian Prisoners' Club said about 6500 Palestinians are being held in 22 Israeli prisons. The strike also comes at a hard time for the Palestinian Authority, whose leader, Mahmoud Abbas, is aging and unpopular.

Ms Rayner, a staunch Corbyn backer, said she welcomed the General Election as a chance for Labour to to give Britain a "new direction".

"That is true of British prime ministers with huge majorities", he said.

This shift to a large majority will allow May to negotiate a hard Brexit deal that will pass even if some in her party vote against the final agreement.

He said that the future location of the European Banking Authority (EBA) and the European Medicines Agency (EMA), the two EU bodies based in London, will not be part of the Brexit talks.

Three weekend opinion polls put the Conservatives about 20 points ahead of Labour, while Britain second female prime minister also has strong personal support.

With the main opposition Labour Party weakened and divided under left-wing leader Jeremy Corbyn and the pro-EU Liberal Democrats holding just nine Commons seats, May is calculating that the election will bring her an expanded crop of Conservative lawmakers.

Although Parliament will not be officially dissolved until early May, campaigning is already under way - with Lib Dem leader Tim Farron addressing a rally of activists in south-west London earlier on Wednesday.

May ruled out participating in televised debates with other leaders.

The European Union, meanwhile, said it will stick to a timetable for preparing to launch Brexit negotiations with the United Kingdom despite the early general election.
