Number 10 Statement
You know, IIRC correctly it was a convention before 2015 to not attack your opposition too harshly when announcing an election - David Cameron apparently broke this and in this timeline Dylan Macmillan seems to follow suite. It's aggressive and more confrontational than the public want, but it's a battle cry and the first shot is fired.
Right now, people are just relieved they have a chance to vote for a Parliament that can function.
