Theresa May 'frustrated' at robotic jibes

During a lacklustre election campaign she earned the unflattering moniker of Maybot, but Theresa May insists she is not "in the least robotic".
The Prime Minister has reflected on the General Election on 8 June that ended with the Conservatives losing their Commons majority.
"It is difficult to go into an election thinking, working, hoping for a particular result and then getting a different result," she said, appearing on BBC radio's Test Match Special."As the leader of the party, of course you have to take it to a degree personally and you have to accept that responsibility."
Theresa May 'frustrated' at robotic jibes

Mrs May has sought to shake off comparisons with Margaret Thatcher
Mrs May was criticised for giving stiff, wooden response to answers and staging carefully choreographed events where she would rarely interact with people.She said she always enjoyed "getting out there and knocking on doors and meeting people in the streets" but, as party leader and PM, she had to conduct this campaign differently."It's more meeting groups of people and making a number of speeches," she said.
"I get frustrated (that) people used the term 'robotic' about me during that campaign," the PM added."I don't think I'm in the least robotic, what I really enjoy is getting out there, talking to people, hearing from them, understanding what the issues are for them."The PM has said recently she wants to lead the party into the next election.Mrs May also sought to shake off comparisons with the only other UK female prime minister, saying: "There was only ever one Margaret Thatcher."I am Theresa May and I do things in my way and the circumstances of the government are different."
