Will It Be May In June?

General Election - HR Software Blog

Happy general election day everyone!

Decision time is here again (three years ahead of schedule), who will prevail in the battle for Number 10? Who is tough enough? (Sorry Ed, I couldn't resist)

In the blue corner, we have Prime Minister Theresa May who called this snap general election in a bid to strengthen her hand in realising the government's Brexit vision. Her opponent in the red corner, Labour supremo Jeremy Corbyn.

While I'm sure that you have a good idea which way your vote is going to go, let's take a closer look at leading candidates Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn:

Theresa Mary May was born on the 1st October 1956 to parents Zaidee and Hubert Brasier in Eastbourne, Sussex. May became a Member of Parliament in 1997 and has served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the Conservative Party since July 2016. Following the 2010 general election, May was appointed Home Secretary and Minister for Women and Equalities, positions she held until 2016 and 2012 respectively. She has been married to Philip May since 1980.

Jeremy Bernard Corbyn was born on 26th May 1949 to parents Naomi and David Corbyn in Chippenham, Wiltshire. A Member of Parliament since 1983, he became Leader of the Labour Party and Leader of the Opposition in September 2015. Before entering politics in 1974, Corbyn worked as a representative for a number of trade unions. He has been married three times, divorced twice and has three sons by his second wife.

According to those ever-reliable opinion polls, the outcome could be anything from a hung parliament to a Conservative rout! Could Jeremy Corbyn pull off a major upset and be the next Labour Prime Minister or will it be May in June?
