No; but I wonder if you ever step back and consider what you have just said and whether it might apply to you.

Meanwhile on topic, there is quite a contrast in the campaigning styles: Corbyn gives an open invitation to the press, while May has a select few who may not ask questions.

The contrast between the two is quite interesting. It should make the contest a little more exciting than the last election.

I think one area where May will need to work on is what she is offering which is new or different to the last election. It is difficult to get re-elected on a promise of more of the same. I suspect she will wait and see whether anything Corbyn says anything that is poplar and then attempt to reflect something similar in what she is offering.

".... more of the same"? What, is TM offering us another Referendum? :(

No. But at the moment she does not seem to be offering anything new in key areas like education and healthcare.
