May meets real voter at last - and misses point

Responding to one of Theresa May's first interactions of the campaign with a real voter, in which she was confronted by a woman in Abingdon over cuts to disability benefits, Liberal Democrat Leader Tim Farron said:

“Theresa May has shown she just doesn’t care about people like Cathy who are seeing their benefits slashed and prices rise.
“Instead of addressing concerns over learning disabilities – she tried to change the subject to mental health.
“Theresa May isn’t listening and is taking people for granted.
“People don’t have to settle for this cold, mean-spirited vision of Britain.
“A better future is available. The Liberal Democrats will stand up against a bad Brexit deal that will cost jobs and push up prices, and we will reverse Conservative cuts to benefits for people not fit for work.”
