MPs vote to hold general election 12 Dec
A general election will be held 12 December after MPs voted by 438 to 20 for the election bill. Labour whipped its MPs to support the bill as Jeremy Corbyn’s wishes prevailed. An attempt by the LibDems to bring the election forward to 9 December was defeated 315-295.
The bill still needs approval in the Lords, but this is expected to be without problem.
Bring it on.
