The Newsmakers: UK Back to the Polls

It wasn't meant to happen for another three years, but now Britons are heading back to the polls in less than 50 days. The UK parliament approved the Prime Minister's surprise call to hold elections in June, and campaigns are under way. So, why so soon? Theresa May says it's about getting the vote out of the way early, so an election won't be looming as Brexit nears completion. But critics say it's now, as negotiations begin, that it's critical for the UK to be united. Many see it as a chance for the Conservative Party to capitalise on high opinion polls, and strengthen their hand before returning to Brussels. So, is the snap election for the good of the UK or just the ruling party? And will the gamble pay-off, or is there a chance her plan could backfire?
