THERESA MAY was airbrushed from the Conservative website yesterday in what Labour has claimed is an attempt by the party to distance itself from the Prime Minister, writes Lucas Davies-Herbst.
The Conservative leader’s picture was stripped from the homepage of official party website www.conservatives.com.
Labour MP Toby Perkins quipped at Prime Minister’s Questions that Ms May has gone “from ‘the next Iron Lady’ to ‘the lady vanishes’.”
He added: “Politicians are said to be here today and gone tomorrow, but whatever tomorrow may bring, the Prime Minister isn’t even here today to mark the end of her first year in power.”
Mr Perkins suggested that the “vanishing act” is yet another sign that the Conservative Party are readying to remove the increasingly unpopular PM from her place as party leader.
A senior Conservative source denied the allegations, saying: “There are plenty of pictures of the Prime Minister on the Conservative Party website.”
