I'm beginning to wonder. Her constant reiteration of "strong and stable leadership", her avoidance of interaction with any voters other than committed conservatives and her failure to answer perfectly reasonable questions appear to suggest a lack of emotional empathy. While, by all accounts, the Tory manifesto will say as little as possible about anything. Now we have reports of this latest bust-up with EU representatives, suggesting that she has yet to come to grips with the realities of the Brexit negotiations.
Is there evidence of a cool tactical brain behind the bland and blunt - if dogged - refusal to engage with her interlocutors? Or is she just not up to the job? Who knows?
