Oh goodness me, I mean what a question, and I haven't thought about it because actually my International Women's Day is heavily focused on what we're doing on domestic abuse.

So it's not going to have the time to have the girls around and have an evening together, I'm afraid. That's a rather difficult situation.


Plus she has to supervise Phillip taking the bins out.

She's passionate about slogans.

Straight away with the Corbyn attacks. Tories have been in power for 8 years, they can't still blame Labour for everything.

But to the masses of neutral voters, or for those that have seen traditional party loyalty ripped up by Brexit, arguably the Conservatives biggest selling point is that they aren't Corbyn. He's probably less tempting to undecided voters than May.

She's likely pushing the fear of Corbyn at the conference to try to prevent the Tory party from tearing itself apart over the next few months leading up to Brexit.

This speech is all lies and hypocrisy:
- She claims to support the NHS because she's diabetic, doesn't mention that she got her patch privately and getting one on the NHS is a postcode lottery due to budget restraints.
- Claims life expectancy has gone up in free trade markets. It's only dropped here since the Tories to power and has been blamed on their austerity cuts.
- The usual Corbyn smears that are untrue.
- Talks about security while not mentioning that she has drastically cut police numbers and closed hundreds of police stations.
- Blaming Labour for the 2008 global financial crash
- Saying that because Leave won the referendum by a small margin that is the will of the people to leave with no deal.

It's also just an easy way of getting the audience on your side.

A clearly planned attempt to humanise her. It's like something Boris would do.

Come on guys, it's only natural for her developers to be proud to show off the new dancing firmware update. Give them a break.

100% this.

It’s great when somebody is capable of laughing at themselves but we all know Theresa May is not that sort of person. The least convincing dancing robot ever (and I am including Peter Crouch).

So we've now got May and Boris trying to out-clown each other to win over the nation? :dread:

It’s more a robot versus a clown.

Pennywise vs the Terminator. But without any of the competence, charm, intelligence or wit of the two fictional characters.
