Over the past few weeks, Mr S has detected the faint whiff of May-mania on the horizon. The Prime Minister’s handling of the poisoning of a former Russian double agent on British soil has seen her popularity rise again. What’s more, she learnt a new trick – recently fist-bumping a Salisbury resident. Now she can add cracking jokes to that list.

At her appearance before the Liaison Committee this afternoon, May was asked about the importance of the agriculture industry in Wales to the community. Here she pointed out that she had seen this herself on her many walking trips in Wales – only not everyone would appreciate this:

‘I’m tempted to point out that I do see value of Welsh agriculture to the Welsh landscape quite often when I go walking in Wales. Although given the decision I took last year when I did that I’m not sure many would welcome my reference to walking in Wales again.’

What ever next – a Prime Minister who participates in the leader debates?
