From The Socialist newspaper, 26 April 2017
Reportedly, Theresa May's 'management style' isn't to the linking of some senior Tories, photo Policy Exchange (Creative Commons) (Click to enlarge)
- Three leading staff members have already resigned from the Tory campaign team. The prime minister's director of communications resigned on 18 April - the day May called the snap election. On 21 April, the end of that week, her press secretary jumped ship. By the start of the next week, 24 April, a senior advisor to the chancellor had gone too. There are plenty more Tory spin doctors where those came from. But it's not a good start for May's campaign - while Corbyn begins another round of mass rallies.
- A Tory council candidate in Scotland has confirmed he wants people not to vote for him. Thomas Williamson described his candidacy as a "cock-up" to the Shetland Times. Conservative HQ asked him to stand, but Williamson says he never agreed.
