WATCH: Brenda speaks for the nation when finding out there’s going to a general election

So here we are – a snap general election.

That’s right, Prime Minister Theresa May has announced that she plans to call a general election on June 8. Despite previous repeated denials from Downing Street that there would be a national vote before the next scheduled election in 2020, it is most definitely happening this summer.

Many have reacted with dismay, especially seeing as the EU Referendum and all the bullshit that that brought with it is still fresh in our memoryies. It seems the nation is sick of politicians bickering with each other, and telling us whatever they can get away with to sway our vote one way or the other.

As ever on such occasions, the major news outlets have been on the streets to gage the immediate reaction of the public, and no one quite summed up the general sense of exasperation to Monday’s news like a woman named Brenda. She was told of the announcement by BBC reporter Jon Kay, and responded thus:

“You’re JOKING! Not ANOTHER one? Oh for GOD’S SAKE. I can’t, honestly, I can’t STAND this. There’s too much politics going on at the moment. WHY does she need to do it?”

Preach, Brenda.
