UK General Election 2017

Voters across the UK are casting their ballots in a snap general election

Voters across the UK are casting their ballots in a snap general election that could have a big impact on how the country negotiates its exit from the European Union.

‘A big shock’

Speaking to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, Simon Fraser, former Head of the Foreign Office, warned that exit polls are not always correct, but if this poll is, “it’s a big shock.”

Theresa May called this election “so she could consolidate her position… if she actually ends up with a small majority or no majority at all, then she has failed in her objective.”

What this poll also suggests, Fraser said, is that “the mood of the population is very unpredictable.”
