A Dudley pensioner’s encounter may have given us the key to the real reason that Theresa ‘Chicken’ May has ducked (sorry to mix bird words) out of any debates with other party leaders.
As the local paper the Express and Star revealed, Graham Mills was unimpressed when he met the current Prime Minister while mowing his lawn:
I was cutting my grass at the time when I saw a load of cars pull up and she came towards me.
First of all she asked if she could walk across my lawn and I said no, not really, I have just cut it.
I started by asking her why she would not debate the other leaders on the TV and she said ‘well we meet every Wednesday’ and I said that is hardly an answer and asked if she thought she owed it to the public. Again I did not really get an answer.
I asked her why she was running the exact same campaign as David Cameron did with Lynton Crosby and employing the same scare tactics by suggesting Labour would form a coalition with the SNP, which she knows they wouldn’t. It is scare tactics.
I was amazed at how nervous she was.
She spoke about Europe saying we had to get things back so I asked her why doesn’t she start at home.
She kept giving me stock answers every time – which was that it would be worse under Labour. I was really disappointed.
Theresa May is clearly not a ‘people person’. But if she’s nervous as hell and can’t give a straight answer to a question when she’s talking to a 73yo mowing his lawn, Jeremy Corbyn would make even smaller mincemeat of her in a televised debate in front of millions than he does every week in PMQs.
Really, really small mincemeat.
Just for Mrs May’s information, here’s what a real statesman and a real ‘people’s politician’ looks like when he’s out and about:
It’s impossible to imagine Theresa May this comfortable with anyone, ever. No wonder she’s in hiding.
