The following exchange is reported between Mrs May and Sam Blackledge in "The Plymouth Herald"
"Two visits in six weeks to one of the country's most marginal constituencies - is she getting worried?
TM: I'm very clear that this is a crucial election for this country."
Plymouth is feeling the effects of military cuts. Will she guarantee to protect the city from further pain?
TM: "I'm very clear that Plymouth has a proud record of connection with the armed forces."
"Now I'm confident we can get a good deal". OK Theresa what does a good deal look like? What Norway has? or Iceland or Lichtenstein or America or any other country? Tell us what does a good deal look like?
"with the right plan for those negotiations": What is the right plan? What does it look like, what will we be presenting in those negotiations?
"Because I think a good deal is in our interests". You don't say! surely not! 'and in the interests of the rest of the EU' (ditto)
This campaign from a Conservative Party point of view is a shambles. It has been built and run around the person of the Prime Minister: 'Theresa's Team'; 'My Manifesto'; 'A vote for me and my team' and is all about HER, not the party and not the country - HER. (It would be just as bad as if it were all about HIM).
In what is being billed as the most important election on the most important decision since the end of the Second World War (Brexit) you would have thought that Mrs May would present a Brexit vision.
It is not being discussed.
I am a natural Conservative but I am not a Conservative Party supporter. The Party is not even Conservative. It is Blairite Labour. Where is the vision of where the United Kingdom's final home will be? - no one is saying.
This has been a lamentable campaign and unfortunately the leader of the Conservative Party is responsible for it.
This is not leadership or the pretence of leadership. It is utterly irresponsible and the Conservative Party (not least Mrs May) should be ashamed.
