UK heads for snap election in December

Parliament last night voted overwhelmingly in support of a December snap election which looks set to be held on the 12th of December. Support emerged after the Conservative party backed a proposal from the LibDems and the SNP to hold an election before the January leave date.  Labour, seeing the majority for a vote already in parliament were arguably forced to back the proposal to save face despite having some of the lowest approval ratings in recent history. Despite the Conservative majority in the polls, the new vote throws up the increased possibility of a hung parliament which could force the government into holding another referendum on UK membership in the EU.
