Is it time for another General Election?

Edited, you aren't a mong but obviously another Russian troll!
Funny that, I was actually beginning to wonder if he/she/it wasn't a left wing anarchist. Or possibly a Commie troll.
I've voted Labour in the past, pre Blair. But vote Labour now with Corbyn and McDuck in charge, I rather vote for the five horsemen of the Apocalypse. Those two will send this country back into the dark ages or the 1960s ......

Oh god, not the 1960's. Free love. mini skirts see through blouses and I was too young to enjoy it.
 
I'd rather vote for the five horsemen of the Apocalypse.
Sorry to disappoint but due to ongoing Brexit uncertainties and the resultant increase in the price of horse fodder, Apocalyptic Equestrians Я Us Ltd has been hit rather hard and as a result, 40% of the workforce have been made redundant.

You'll have to settle for three horsemen of the apocalypse I'm afraid.

Sadly death is no longer with us so you will have to suffer pestilence, war and famine for eternity with no relief.

Yep. Anyone with half an ounce of common sense would agree with you.
I believe that JC has called for this GE at the worse possible time.
People just want Brexit to be sorted out now. Not delayed any further.
He is a total idiot.
He all mouth and then when offered out, runs away. Thinking about it, a bit like me
 
There is a whole generation of socialists, marxists, anti semites, dole scrounging chavs, pimps and migrants ready to vote for Dear Leader
If they can be arsed to get out of bed
 
I wonder if a GE is increasingly likely. Events are of course unpredictable but Mrs May is now only a few defections away from being unable to govern. If a few more of her MPs walk away (their goal being the prevention of Brexit), would Mrs May think it worth going to the country? There are some possible advantages: forcing all the defecting MPs to face a vote before their party machines are in place at a local level; striking while Labour are in huge chaos; and perhaps obtaining a majority for May's Brexit deal? Most importantly, forcing the new group to actually have a manifesto which is not just 'stop Brexit'.
It might put the new group in all sorts of trouble. It would certainly hinder their attempt to gain momentum.

Conservatives & DUP (maybe)
Brexit Party & DUP coalition?
TIG & LibDem coalition
Labour & Greens coalition

Is this starting to look like German politics?

I think it's quite well documented that the people in Soubry's neck of the woods voted 55%-45% in favour of leave. You may remember that the polls were not taken according to parliamentary constituency boundaries.
 
It would be a brave (in the Sir Humphrey meaning of "brave", i.e. bloody stupid idea.)
decision to call a GE now. There is Brexit to deal with in a month.
Electoral purdah, the shut down of political government functions before an election is 6 weeks long.
Calling a GE now is a recipe for not just a no deal Brexit , but a complete abdication of control Brexit.

The breakaways may be hoping for this. In their eyes an election will mean we must have a delay to departure, whether it does or whether it just ensures a no deal exit would be another matter, but I suspect that would be their first cry. You are however right it would leave them without a party machine and any meaningful manifesto than 'No Brexit' [and maybe for some for the Labour ones 'No antisemitism'] so it will be interesting to see if they actually go along with any Labour motion of no confidence.
 
It wouldn't surprise me if PMTM was landed with a No-Deal Brexit and once past the point of no return called a GE. Currently I think the Conservatives would increase their numbers at the expense of Labour and the Liberals so her thinking would be to increase in size to enable her government to frame the changes in Law required post Brexit.
