Theresa May’s campaign has not been one to shout about and whilst she has been afforded a lot of space and significantly less scrutiny than Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn would have. Her will to avoid the public has not gone unnoticed. So far, she has spent the vast amount of time in privately held events after workers have gone home, invite-only events, locking journalists in a room and only allowing 3 minutes of questions with no cameras and disguising an event as a child’s party.

The latter has some truth because her attitude towards the EU has been petulant at best since the leave vote.

Her campaign has also been throwing insults at Labour rather than promoting meaningful policies.

Change is needed

The Conservative campaign has been strong and stable, in the sense that it has stuck to its rhetoric and seemingly believes its own rubbish. They have overseen an increase in inequality, spent more money than save through austerity affording large corporations massive tax cuts. When the Conservatives came to power corporate tax stood at 28% but would have dropped 11-points by 2020 to 17%.

Whilst harsh sanctions on benefits have seen millions of working families, the disabled and those with mental health issues hit hardest. The new reforms on mental health recently announced are an exercise for votes rather than a substantial policy.

They have seen DWP directly linked suicides and a rise in food bank usage. Yet millions of hard-workers are willing to voter for her because of Brexit. Change only occurs when we hold our leader to account not an organisation that has little say in the day-to-day running of the UK.
