Theresa May gave an interview to Andrew Neil yesterday that was one of the worst I have ever seen a politician give in the history of any election.
If you haven’t seen it then you should watch it online or on catch up, it was even worse than any interview given by Kezia Dugdale, like ever. It was that bad. Theresa May mumbled, stuttered, lied, repeated the same old sayings like the speaking clock does and blamed Jeremy Corbyn for pretty much everything. Events over the last 24 hours have put things into perspective and this interview will not get the coverage it deserves, certainly not this week, if at all, but we did learn a few things, that most of us already know.
Theresa May(hem) assumes that she is going to win this election without trying. With an un-costed and insulting manifesto that should, but isn’t, being hammered by the press to the end of the earth. She could not answer where any extra money was coming from for the NHS or Education, would not answer why the unpopular Jeremy Corbyn was closing the gap in the polls, why she u-turns all the time, no all she went on about was who would negotiate Brexit. After this interview I would imagine anyone watching would be hoping that it’s anyone but her.
This woman is not fit to be the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, normally I wouldn’t care but it will have such a profound effect on Scotland that we should all care. As The National pointed out recently,
She often accuses Jeremy Corbyn of being unfit to lead, he is,no doubt about that, but so is she, if it was a straight choice I would have Corbyn although neither are a friend to Scotland in any shape or form. Theresa May is one of the worst politicians I have ever seen, she is robotic, not engaging, scripted and I think a bit thick.
If the Conservatives win the election we should all mourn and be very very afraid, a Conservative win with May(hem) at the helm and we are in serious serious trouble. What can’t people in England see, I am just waiting on the racist anti-Scottish rhetoric to play out as the polls tighten like the last time.
Theresa May is the wrong person, in the right party, at the wrong time, in the wrong century.
I wasn’t going to post this tonight after the events in Manchester yesterday so I hope that no one takes offense. My heart goes out to all in Manchester who were a victim of the horrific crimes that took place last night.
