Can Theresa May be serious or is she having a “senior moment”?

Theresa May pledged to support a bid to bring the cycling world championships to Yorkshire as she vowed her government would press ahead with George Osborne’s “northern powerhouse” project.

After Team GB’s extraordinary medal success in the cycling events at the Rio Olympics, the prime minister used an article in the Yorkshire Post to promise that the government would underwrite the UK’s bid to host the world championships and provide £24m of investment.

May also insisted she was committed to the “northern powerhouse” strategy, championed by the former chancellor, to give more powers to city regions.
