MAIDENHEAD, England British Prime Minister Theresa Could said on Friday that she was not getting anything for granted as she gears up for a snap election in June in which polls propose her Conservative occasion is heading for a landslide victory.
Could called the national election in a surprise transfer on Tuesday, saying it was needed to improve her the vast majority and deliver security as Britain gears up for two years of negotiations with the European Union about its departure from the bloc.
Polls give May’s governing Conservative occasion a lead of all-around 20 proportion points, sufficient to command a the vast majority that could be around 100 seats, but Could said she was not complacent.
“The election campaign has only just started. I’m not getting anything for granted. The end result is not specified,” she said in a speech at a GlaxoSmithKline manufacturing unit in her constituency of Maidenhead.
Could also said that a commitment from the Conservatives to expend .seven p.c of national cash flow on international support would remain, adhering to speculation that it would be scrapped in the Conservatives manifesto for the new election.
