‘Ir­ri­tated’ May slams op­po­nents

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - NEWS -

Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May has ad­mit­ted she gets “ir­ri­tated” by the de­bate over her lead­er­ship and lashed out at pos­si­ble suc­ces­sor, Boris John­son. The Premier in­sisted she was fo­cused on the coun­try’s fu­ture rather than her own in a BBC in­ter­view to mark the six-month count­down to Brexit. Mrs May crit­i­cised Mr John­son for us­ing “com­pletely in­ap­pro­pri­ate” lan­guage when he de­scribed her Brexit strat­egy as putting the UK in a “sui­cide vest”. Mr John­son is widely ex­pected to vie to re­place Mrs May. In the in­ter­view, Mrs May said: “I get a lit­tle bit ir­ri­tated, but this de­bate is not about my fu­ture, this de­bate is about the fu­ture of the peo­ple of the UK.”
