Concerns are increasing for Theresa May’s health – and her fitness for office – after she appears to forget where she was during a TV interview.
Mrs May was in Clay Cross – in yet another empty factory – but as she talked to the interviewer it was immediately clear she didn’t know where she was:
A cardinal rule of campaigning is to know where you are and name-check it in any interviews or speeches. May remembered the latter half of the rule – but couldn’t complete the first:
I’m pleased to come to… er… this particular town…
It’s not only a gross insult to the people of Clay Cross but a cause for concern. Theresa May completely fell apart – and fell over her own words – during PMQs when challenged by the SNP’s Angus Robertson about the pensions ‘triple lock’ and many have commented that she looks ill.
This has led to speculation that she might have called an election – among other reasons – because she might not be able to fight one later and wants to try to win and then hand over the role of PM to some unelected Tory successor who’s even less personable.
Whatever the truth or otherwise of that speculation, Mrs May is giving serious grounds for concern about her fitness to be Prime Minister. She has visited a handful of carefully-controlled places compared to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, so she doesn’t even have the excuse that she lost track in the whirlwind of an intense campaign trail.
With every day that passes, May’s claim to be the one to provide ‘strong and stable’ leadership looks more vaporous – while Corbyn’s energy, composure under pressure and abilty to connect with anyone and everyone is shining a spotlight on her serious personal failings.
