The Unite union acting general secretary Gail Cartmail said: "The prime minister has gone back on her word regarding an early General Election and the electorate will remember that".
Angus Robertson, leader of the Scottish National Party's (SNP) lawmakers in London, tweeted that the snap election on June 8 would be a "straight choice in Scotland between the SNP and Tories".
THERESA May has made a "huge political miscalculation" in calling a snap election, Nicola Sturgeon warned, as she said the vote could strengthen the case for a second Scottish independence referendum.
"That means that this will be - more than ever before - an election about standing up for Scotland, in the face of a right-wing, austerity obsessed Tory government with no mandate in Scotland but which now thinks it can do whatever it wants and get away with it". While Margaret Thatcher's election did herald the end of the post-war consensus, it kept the Conservative/Labour "mould" intact, despite later attempts by the SDP/Liberal alliance to break it.
He predicted the Nationalists could win 50 of Scotland's 59 seats, with the latest polls showing the Tories going up from one to four. "That will change the perspective of many Scots and the SIC believes we must have the same chance to reassess our political priorities that Theresa May has just grabbed for herself".
Palace fight back to force 2-2 draw with Leicester
What happens in the summer can only happen in the summer and can only be talked about, for me, when we are safe. Islam Slimani has scored 35 league goals since the start of 2015-16, 16 of which have been from headers (46%).
"If we need any reminder of what Tories do in power, just look at what happened last week". She is arguing that she needs as strong a mandate as possible in European Union negotiations and that only a vote for the Conservatives can protect United Kingdom interests.
She added: "We couldn't ask healthcare professionals to adhere to this guidance", and said no "serious policy" would require women to disclose they had been raped in order to claim a benefit.
That's a position which served them well in the 2016 election to the Holyrood parliament when they overtook Labour to become the second largest party in Scotland.
"Ruth Davidson - who we were told was a different type of Tory - stood up and took a stand... not against poverty or injustice or the mistreatment of someone, but to justify the abhorrent rape clause".
The Tory leader added: "With Jeremy Corbyn having already said he is "absolutely fine" with an immediate referendum, we also know that Labour can't be relied to stand up to them".
Johnson & Johnson says pricing competition squeezing sales
J&J expects adjusted earnings per share in the range of $7.00 - $7.15 for 2017 compared with $6.93 to $7.08 expected previously. Intact Investment Management Inc.'s holdings in Johnson & Johnson were worth $18,070,000 at the end of the most recent quarter.
"We will avoid a disastrous hard Brexit and keep Britain united".
A Scottish Government spokeswoman said: "The Scottish Government is committed to ensuring Scotland is a country that businesses and people want to locate, live, and work in, both through preserving a competitive, progressive tax environment but also providing good quality public services".
Nicola Sturgeon used her column in the Daily Record newspaper yesterday to heavily criticise the Scottish Conservative party leader's defence of the tax credits measure. There will be no more mutterings about how her very existence contradicts the Brexit vote (it was for more democratic accountability and she has not won an election for her party).
Already, opinion polls have indicated that the Conservative Party (Tories) will either maintain their majority within the Parliament or grow that number.
