‘Inhuman’: Theresa May slammed for ’embarrassing’ Newsnight interview as she’s interrogated over misjudging public mood following Grenfell Tower tragedy

Theresa May has been branded “inhuman” and “lacking in empathy” following a disastrous Newsnight interview.

The Prime Minister was interrogated by the BBC’s Emily Maitlis over misjudging the public mood following the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy.

May faced a huge public backlash for failing to visit the victims of the tower block inferno during a visit on Thursday.

On her second visit on Friday – to the same church where Jeremy Corbyn had hugged a survivor the day before – an angry crowd surrounded her car and screamed “coward” and “May must go”.

Emily Maitlis interrogated the PM over misjudging the public mood

During the painful interview, Maitlis told the PM: “You misread the public mood on this one. You misread the anger that people feel about this.

“They shouted coward after you this afternoon when you left St Clement’s.”

In robotic fashion, May answered: “What I have done since this incident took place is, first of all yesterday, ensure that public services had the support that they needed in order to be able to do the job they were doing in the immediate aftermath.

Maitlis interjected: “But that’s three days on, Prime Minister, this is Friday evening. They needed those things in place on Wednesday.

“No one was in charge.”
