Not sure why Brexit is the only issue people are concerned with. Whoever wins this has 5 years in power, Brexit is expected to take 2 years (will take longer for the effects to hit), leaving whoever wins with 3 years free to do whatever the f*** they want.

My guess is that that is behind the election being called. May was warning us of the destruction that 'Brexit' would bring. She must therefore be aware that any sitting government is going to take a sting from it.

Just keep going, and allow yourself a year to win the next election?

Or call one 11 days before negotiations, giving you 3 years to convince the public that it wasn't so bad after all.
