May: another mediocrity

It takes a certain gift, writes Dalrymple,

to combine cliché with error, but Theresa May — to judge by her speech to the Conservative party conference — appears to have it in full. In so far as the speech did not consist of the most hackneyed and empty phrases, it could have been delivered by any Labour leader before Jeremy Corbyn, and part of it even by Mr Corbyn himself.

May, says Dalymple,

wants, and I suspect is perfectly able, to turn Britain into a macrocosm of the giant official inquiry into sexual abuse that she set up when home secretary, which as we can see has been so very successful. To quote the kind of language Mrs May (among other politicians) employs, it delivers a lot of value — to the lawyers.
