To not do so would be a betrayal of all those he claims to want to protect, those who need a strong Labour party to hold the Tories' feet to the fire and ultimately have a fighting chance of making it into government itself.
"But she wasn't honest in what she portrayed the political situation in the country to be". Explaining her change of heart for an early election, May said: "I have concluded the only way to guarantee certainty and security for years ahead is to hold this election".
