A general election would be painful, but it could solve Brexit

3 April 2019

Professor Philip Cowley published an article for The Times Red Box where he argues that a general election could solve Brexit. He writes: “Speaking professionally, I want an election about as much as I want to take a cheese grater to my knuckles, but what the votes of the past week have revealed is how an election could be a solution to the impasse — but probably not a solution that most Conservatives will like.”
