VIDEO: Theresa May goes back on election promise

Theresa May shocked Westminster on Tuesday morning by announcing she plans to call a general election on June 8 going back on her word. The country will go to the polls little more than two years since the Conservatives, led then by David Cameron, won the 2015 election against Ed Miliband's Labour Party, with the Scottish National Party leapfrogging the Liberal Democrats to become the third largest party in the Commons.
