Well, I could not find it, I mean, The British General Election of 2017, but I bumped into that book, regarding 1997.

Things look bleak for Theresa May as for her "win" in the General Election of 2017. If you add to that, Brexit's hard negotiations and a rising popularity of J. Corbyn , than chances are that Labour may have a chance....20 years on.

Chavismo Socialism at last?
