With news that the United Kingdom's Prime Minister, Theresa May, has called a snap election for June 8th, the political landscape has been thrown into turmoil.

The election will pit the two major parties - the Conservatives, led by May, and Labour, led by Jeremy Corbyn - against one another, whilst First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon, hopes to increase the seats of the SNP and force a second referendum for Scottish independence.

In spite of all this, it seems like there's a lot of people disillusioned with the political class in the United Kingdom - and seeking a new alternative in the form of Louis Theroux. Yes, that guy from the Scientology Movie and the documentaries.

A petition on Change.org has reached 5,209 supporters as of writing and calls Theroux "one of the most understanding, smart and trusted men in the UK, Mr Theroux (probably) has more skills to work out what is best for post-Brexit Britain than May, Farage and Corbyn combined."
