Theresa May, MIA: The mysterious case of the missing prime minister | The Economist

HAS anyone seen Britain’s prime minister? Rumour has it that she was campaigning in the south-west of England today. But journalists have found it strangely difficult to catch a glimpse of her—indeed, the local press pack was locked in a room and forbidden from filming her on a visit this morning to a factory, according to CornwallLive, a news website.

For a politician who is said to enjoy canvassing and meeting the public, Theresa May is risking few encounters with ordinary voters. Over the weekend she was in Scotland, where she held a closed event in a hall in the middle of nowhere. Previously she attended a rally at a company in Leeds, whose employees tweeted that they had been sent home before things kicked off. She has refused to take part in televised debates, which Britain is nowadays very rare among democracies in not having.
