Kaor, Paul!You already know I look forward to reading any comments you care to make about these Stirling and Wright books!I know the statutory limit on the lifetime of a British parliament is five years, after which new elections are mandatory. Unless the PM requests the Sovereign to dissolve Parliament and call for new elections. Is Theresa May requesting early elections? You are more patient than I am! I find Jehovah's Witnesses very difficult to talk to!Sean
Sean,Recently, a measure was passed imposing fixed term Parliaments. So we are stuck with the present set-up until 2020 UNLESS the PM wants to go earlier AND can get a two thirds vote in the Commons - which I assume she can.Paul.
She is trying to.
Kaor, Paul!Thought it was something like that. It SEEMED too soon for mandatory Parliamentary elections.Sean
