“Um… to, ah… Yes? A little tear.” Theresa May seems unsure how to react when asked if she cried on election night.

Is it a coincidence that, shortly after Facebook started burying posts by social media websites in an attempt to reverse their popularity, the mass media are trying to get us to see the human side of Theresa May?

It isn’t working, is it?

Mrs May has appeared in an interview that is being widely repeated on the BBC, in which she (reluctantly) speaks of how she “shed a tear” on hearing exit poll results on election night that showed she would not win the massive majority for which she had hoped.

Even then, she had to be prompted.

There is no mention of the disgusting policy platform on which Mrs May tried to win the election – of the plans to add pensioners to the list of those being penalised by her party’s austerity cuts; of the bid to take away people’s homes to pay for care, when they have already paid for it with their taxes; of the fact that the public hugely rejected her version of Brexit (but she’s going ahead with it anyway); or of the many diabolical policies that she has been forced to ditch since the election.

This is a brazen attempt to rehabilitate the most malicious and least capable leader in recent UK history.

And it is being done at a time when most people won’t be able to read this article, because Facebook has ensured it will be buried in your timeline unless you have taken specific actions – within the last few days – to stop it doing so.

A co-ordinated public relations blitz, then? Yes, This Writer thinks that is possible.
