So now the PM of UK - Theresa May - has announced the country is going to have another general election on 8th June.
The Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and the SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon are both stunned but express their eagerness for such an election.
This election has been steered by the consequences of BREXIT.
But the issue is that many people are tired of discussions about BREXIT and are indeed fearful of it.
So how will this election affect these leaders? The Conservatives will possibly increase their dominance in the House of Commons. May is well regarded by many people but will the election improve her standing within the party and allow her greater freedom in her BREXIT negotiations? Will her decision back- fire?
The main help for her is the poor status of the Labour and the Liberal parties by voters. Voting for her because she's the better regarded one to go for. A similar situation happened when Margaret Thatcher was PM. Her third election victory was assisted by that.
As for the SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon, her party's preeminence in Scotland (holding 56 of the 59 seats) means the election is unlikely to dramatically shrink the SNP dominance. However, her preoccupation with Scottish independence may damage the SNP. We'll see.
This discussion of 'dominance' certainly makes me think of Turkey's referendum on Sunday as well. The Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was given major new powers. There are fears this could slowly lead to authoritarianism. The result of the referendum - 51.4% in favour of the changes - has certainly exposed deep splits in Turkish society.
The UK vote was 51.9% voted in favour of leaving the European Union (BREXIT).
So will this new UK election be part of PM May's aims for authoritarianism? Well, she'll probably have more power.
It certainly isn't shaped by political/religious motivated violence which sadly happens with Turkey's neighbour - Iraq.
My 'Deprivations' novel is set in a large City shaped by conflict and you could regard the ruler of the City as being a kind of dictator. Again my book is related to reality.
'Deprivations', being a dystopian novel, cynically reshapes our present-day issues.
It has now been published as a paperback, available to buy at Amazon worldwide:
