THE UK’S HEADING out of Europe, Labour is in disarray and David Cameron has announced his impending resignation – triggering a tussle for the leadership of the Conservative Party.

In the latest development, a group of Tory MPs have banded together to ‘Stop Boris’ after the former mayor of London emerged as favourite to take over as leader – and therefore, prime minister.

Former Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg has insisted it would be wrong for the Tory party alone to select the next PM, but Cameron has said it will be up to his successor to call a snap general election.

This morning we’re asking: Should the UK call a snap general election now?
