So Sunak is saying it will ne Autumn so what are the chances of him calling a snap spring election ?

I think he's waiting to see if the polls improve

November 5th. Expect fireworks. No emoji required.

Well no one likes an election in winter because of the weather conditions that can happen.
I would be happy to take a bet with you that it will not be November 5th though.

November is in Autumn.

The US presidential election takes place on November 5th.

I do not gamble so I cannot take up your kind offer.

another Tory MP has quit triggering a by election so that result will be a litmus test of whether Sunak has stopped the rot but I doubt he has.

At this rate the tories might be the opposition by the time of the election !

You missed the point regarding November 5th. That is a Wednesday and elections in the UK are always on a Thursday. So it could very well be the 6th but not the 5th The reference to winter elections means that they don't like elections from December to march.

My humour seems to be lost on you lot. I said nothing more than to expect fireworks on November the fifth. Oh well.

Be careful what you wish for. Have you forgotten the “all the money is gone” note left by Labour in 2010?
In my opinion it will be a hung Parliament. But what would you or I know?

1st weekend of campaigning Sunak seems to be getting himself as much TV air time as possible so looks like the plan is to convince the country how great a job he's doing (even though he isn't really)

labour didn't really get out of the starting blocks but I suspect if the polls show the gap narrowing they'll move up a gear

Lib dems,reform uk were all invisible

Be interesting to see what happens if Corbyn goes it alone.

Should Labour win it will be down to the Tories, not down to them.

so loads of mudslinging during PMQ's highlighting that both main party leaders have a questionable background don't think either party benefitted from that

well that tax bribe has been unveiled but I think they are hoping for lower inflation figures and a cut in BOE base rate before setting the date
