Theresa May faced her first nationwide electoral test as premier Thursday, as she toughened her Brexit position just weeks before a crucial general election.Britons began choosing thousands of new local councilors in a vote that will be closely watched for proof of the strength of May's Conservatives, which opinion polls suggest are on course for a thumping victory in the June 8 parliamentary elections.Experts caution, however, against using the results to predict the outcome of next month's vote, noting that such elections are normally fought on local issues and are often used to punish the sitting government.May gave the European Union formal notice of Britain's intention to leave the bloc on March 29, and two weeks ago called a surprise general election.
