As the SKWAWKBOX showed earlier this evening, Theresa May – wooden and robotic at best – appeared to wipe her hands on her trousers after shaking hands with a worker today.
Just as the contrast could scarcely be greater between her stage-managed, human-free campaign and Corbyn’s ease among people and almost rock-star welcome as he meets the public, so it transpired tonight as Corbyn was shown, thanks to a politics.co.uk journalist, interacting with a member of the public in a way that couldn’t be more different from Mrs May’s evident distaste:

Can you imagine, for a single second, the awkward and unpersonable Tory leader being that relaxed, down to earth and, well, human?
No, thought not. Now wouldn’t it be nice to have, for the first time in generations, a human being in Number 10 – one who can connect with people that naturally and genuinely?
One who understands people and cares about them because he gets them and is one of them?
