New vote covering up for Tory election criminals

Despite stating again and again there would be no snap election – here we are! Theresa May has called an election for June 8th.

In reality this is a tribute to electoral law and the importance of accurate accounts! 30 individual TORY MPs, Election Agents and others, are being investigated by 12 police forces, regarding the 2015 election. Well done Channel 4 on this.

Anything will be blamed except this: Brexit, rowdy backbenchers, May needing a greater majority. 

But the simple fact is, a dozen MPs falling foul of electoral law, meaning a by-election in each MARGINAL seat, would be a humiliating (and fitting) end to May's abominable government.

Locally, we're reminded of Safe Labour Seats, of which there are 3 in Hull. This means Labour gets in in Hull.

IT ALSO MEANS that people can vote Green in Hull as much as possible, thus forcing Hull Labour to respect Green priorities and also, importantly, build the vote for next year to finally succeed in making a breakthrough with a first Green councillor.

Let June be the end of May.
