Laura Perrins: I would rather have the vicar’s daughter than a bunch of Marxists


What is it like to have lunch with the Mays? My guess it is a pleasant affair, not a laugh a minute, but warm and jovial. There is Theresa, cooking up a storm in her kitchen ‘with lots of cook books’ while Phil bumbles through at the last minute to take out the bins. I hope he is better at remembering to take out the bins than my Phil is, but I can confirm that all the best husbands are indeed called Phil.

This is the impression we got of the Mays, from BBC TV’s One Show, and it was all rather refreshing? There was no attempt to get down with the people, because unlike the Camerons and Osbornes, they are the people, and have never been above the people. Sure Philip and Theresa met at Oxford and Philip no doubt makes a tidy sum in the City, but they are not aristocracy with serious family wealth.

There was no kowtowing to the feminazis and their demands for everything to be gender neutral. There are indeed ‘boy jobs’ and ‘girl jobs’ in this happy home. The thing is, you don’t have to display your feminist credentials all the livelong day when you are the Prime Minister, something that seems to go over the heads of many a journalist.

Some people think May is too dull to be Prime Minister, and that we need more personality injected into this election. I say to them: think again.

We certainly do not need more personality in politics, but we do need fewer Marxists. And we all know where the Marxists are hiding out – that would be the Labour party where John McDonnell, a confessed Marxist stands atop all the corpses shouting, just a few more and utopia is ours!

I like my politicians dull, just like if I was an American I’d like my constitution dead. What’s more if I put my feminist hat on, the truth is there is a faint smell of sexism to all this.

Theresa May is not the little lady there to entertain you, she is not a bunny of the Playboy Mansion and this is not X-factor. If you want to be entertained – turn on Netflix. There are plenty of films there to keep you going.

The electorate should be interested in policy over personality, and overall the Conservative party under May is pretty sound. I have been very critical of it in the past and I will continue to be in the future, should she start pushing some crazy statist agenda, such as capping energy prices. But she is safe pair of hands, which is what we need right now.

The only thing relevant under the headline of ‘personality’ is character. May is undoubtedly a woman of character and decency who has been married for 37 years: thirty seven long years, which in this day and age is saying something.

This decision on who to vote for on June 8th is not difficult. On the one hand, you have a vicar’s daughter who has been in public service for a decade. On the other hand, there are a bunch of Marxists railing against a ‘rigged system’ who would burn the whole place down given half a chance. You’ll spend more time thinking about what to have for lunch than you will about who to vote for on June 8th – it’s got to be May.
