Mrs May says the poll is needed because Westminster is divided over Brexit. The decision to hold the election on 8 June - three years earlier than scheduled - was approved on Wednesday, with 522 MPs in favour and 13 against. Which MPs are quitting - and who might stand? Mr Verhofstadt wrote: "The theory espoused by some, that Theresa May is calling a general election on Brexit in order to secure a better deal with the EU, is nonsensical. "Will the election of more Tory MPs give Theresa May a greater chance of securing a better Brexit deal? "For those sitting around the table in Brussels, this is an irrelevance." Mr Verhofstadt added that many in Brussels believed the chances of a deal were being eroded by Mrs May's "tough negotiating red lines" and a lack of "political room for manoeuvre" domestically. He said there was no guarantee "a sprinkling of additional Conservative MPs on the backbenches" would change this. "Indeed, it appears this election is being driven by the political opportunism of the party in government, rather than by the people they represent," he added.
