Theresa May’s visit to Africa has helped to remind voters just what type of leader the Prime Minister is – a rather awkward one. First, May won attention for dancing out of step with South African school children. Now, she has given an iconic Maybot interview to ITV News.

Here’s what the Prime Minister had to say:

On her dancing this morning:

ITV: If you were a judge on Strictly Come Dancing, how would you score your dancing this morning?

TM: I suspect my dancing this morning might not make it on to Strictly.


On BoJo:

ITV: Have you noticed how much Boris Johnson wants your job?

TM: I was very pleased that Boris was my Foreign Secretary for the period he was Foreign Secretary.

ITV: But doesn’t he want your job?

TM: I was pleased that Boris was Foreign Secretary for the period he was Foreign Secretary.

 

On Philip Hammond and his Brexit warnings:

ITV: On Brexit, the Chancellor says a no deal Brexit would blow an £80bn hole in our economy? Do you think no deal would be that bad?

TM: The figures that have been produced are figures that were first produced in January when they were a work in progress

A classic of the genre.
