June 8, 2017 vs June 9, 1983.
What a difference.
June 9, 1983 with Margaret Thatcher.
I voted, for her, in this election, in Harpenden, Herts.
June 8, 2017 with Theresa May.
Though eligible to vote, I did NOT because the U.K.
does not have a good mail-in balloting scheme.
Quite a difference. Maggie walked away with 397 seats. May has 317. That is a 80-seat difference.
To be fair Maggie had the BRILLIANT Falkland Island victory to bouy her.
Wonder if Theresa gave the June 9th date any thought when she called the election for June 8.
