You could have knocked me over with a feather. When a resident in Fishmore strolled down his drive this morning to say that Theresa May had called a general election, I couldn’t take it in. After all, she had only recently said there would be no elections until 2020. I guess she had a bad Easter. I distrust her motives. She wants to crush the opposition and thereby crush democratic debate. Whatever the reasons for Theresa May’s volte-face, we are facing a general election on 8 June.
