    The last time the UK voted in December was 1923, when the Tories lost their majority and a Labour minority with Liberal backing formed an unsteady government that collapsed in less than a year.

    In the FT...

    But many MPs believe it is risky to hold a poll so close to Christmas. David Gauke, former justice secretary recently sacked by the Tory party, warned: “When someone opens the front door to a stranger in December, they expect to be sung a carol, not asked how they are going to vote. A government that is seen as provoking a season of ill-will is unlikely to be viewed affectionately by the general public.”

    While this is true, who will they blame for the December election? I think it is perhaps likely that they will blame Corbyn
