The 2017 Campaign Exposed the Real Theresa May

May at 10, by Sir Anthony Seldon, reviewed by Benjamin Goodwin

In his account of Theresa May’s premiership, Sir Anthony Seldon uncovers the inside story behind the former PM’s troubled time in office, revealing some of the internal conflicts that surrounded the former PM’s disastrous 2017 general election campaign. Telling contributions come from key figures, including former joint chief of staff Fiona Hill, who reveals that May became “surly and not particularly pleasant” as the campaign unfolded. Seldon believes that the campaign “cruelly exposed her unusually inflexible and introverted character.”
