Theresa May is to visit Queen’s University Belfast tomorrow, no doubt as part of her supposed ‘meet the people’ tour to try to sell her abysmal Brexit ‘deal’. The contrast with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s own appearance there in May could scarcely be starker.
May’s version is a closed event with no invitations to the wider public and high security. Jeremy Corbyn spoke to a packed room of a thousand people who attended on an ‘open invitation’ basis.
May’s visit to QUB is at least a step up from standing isolated in a cowshed, but the relaxed humanity of Jeremy Corbyn makes her awkwardness with people and the extent to which her team have to protect her from anything natural stand out even more than they would ordinarily.
May’s ‘challenge’ to Corbyn to debate Brexit is a joke. She will blunder into another disaster if she’s foolish enough to go through with it.
