Britain will head to the polls on December 12 for the first pre-Christmas election since 1923.

With Brexit still not delivered, it is shaping up to be one of the most eventful – and unpredictable – elections in modern times.

Potential candidates will be polishing their leadership credentials ahead of November 14 – the deadline to submit nominations. The list will be published the same day at 5pm if there are no objections, and 4pm the following day if there are some.

 

The public have until midnight on Tuesday, November 26, to register to vote.

Bristol and the South West has been a target area for the Remain Alliance, meaning in some seats the Greens and Lib Dems will stand aside to give each other the best chance of winning.

Meanwhile, Nigel Farage announced on Monday morning that the Brexit party would not stand in the 317 seats that the Conservatives won at the last election, but that they would stand in seats currently held by Labour.
