PM shares her star billing

Daily Mail - - Election 2017 -

SHE has been ac­cused of run­ning a ‘pres­i­den­tial-style’ cam­paign but now Theresa May is fi­nally shar­ing top billing with her party.

The Prime Min­is­ter’s ‘strong and sta­ble’ lead­er­ship has been ham­mered home dur­ing speeches and vis­its over the past few weeks, with vot­ers urged to vote for ‘Theresa May’s team’.

But one week af­ter crit­ics claimed her cam­paign had suf­fered a wob­ble, this has been re­placed with ‘Theresa May and the Con­ser­va­tives: Strong, Sta­ble Lead­er­ship’.

Dur­ing a visit to Wolverhampton, where Mrs May made a speech, the back­drop and lectern also fea­tured the phrase ‘For the Best Brexit Deal, Con­ser­va­tives’. It comes as the party tries to switch the fo­cus of the cam­paign back to ne­go­ti­a­tions with the EU fol­low­ing polls show­ing Labour nar­row­ing the gap.

Mrs May re­sumed cam­paign­ing on this week in Lon­don af­ter call­ing a halt fol­low­ing the Manch­ester bomb­ing and then head­ing to Nato and G7 sum­mits in Europe. She is widely con­sid­ered to have put in a de­cent per­for­mance dur­ing a TV in­ter­view with Jeremy Pax­man on Mon­day.
