...aibu that she's an AWFUL public speaker -
"My message is clear"
"As I said in my statement"
"As I said very clearly in my statement"
And the god awful every other line -
"The fact of the matter is"

Flagged to amend my typo!

She is fucking dreadful. And she said absolutely nothing really.

mbosnz Fri 22-May-20 17:56:07

Definitely scraping the bottom of the confidence inspiring, trustworthy minister's barrel. . .

She makes my hand itch.

campion Fri 22-May-20 17:56:52

I wince at every dropped 'g' too. There are an awful lot.

She is awful, s range combination of condescending whilst also not actually knowing what she's talking about.

ticktock19 Fri 22-May-20 17:59:33

She's appalling, condescending, patronising and downright rude

I often wonder if it's a deliberate thing that the few senior female government ministers, are utterly useless (Priti Patel, Liz Truss)

Delta1 Fri 22-May-20 18:02:26

Couldn't agree more. What a fuck up. Her poor team!

BlackberryCane Fri 22-May-20 18:03:17

She's an awful everything really. There's a reason the Tories haven't let her out much lately.

WipersThymes Fri 22-May-20 18:03:21

I agree, Campion, all the 'in's instead of 'ings' were very distractin'

Thepeabody Fri 22-May-20 18:03:35

Her tone is clipped and her pronunciation is exceptionally clear which makes her dropping of letter g all the more noticeable. It's grating and then there's the content itself confused

HampshireMummyof2 Fri 22-May-20 18:03:53

It's not just her that does it, but there is a lot of just passing the question onto the scientist at the moment and leaving it up to them to answer. If there is not much to pass on, why can't they drop to every other day for briefing plus when something important needs to be said?

goldpendant Fri 22-May-20 18:04:56

The dropped g's kill me!

PicsInRed Fri 22-May-20 18:05:15

Is the g dropping distracting or are we institutionalised to hear predominantly RP from our rulers?

A bit of the self hating pleb?

ilovesooty Fri 22-May-20 18:05:25

Agree about her enunciation. It's so sloppy. And she's as empathic as a lump of concrete.

IncrediblySadToo Fri 22-May-20 18:05:42

Yep she's dreadful! & chippy!!

I'm going to send her a box of g's!!

Friend text me to say do you think there's a statement coming out today' aka no bloody idea what's going on. 🙇🏻‍♀️

Beauty spots - all she had to say was STAY LOCAL. I really do think they're still trying herd immunity

Worriedaboutthefuture1 Fri 22-May-20 18:05:45

I absolutely hate her. I hate her smug smile. I hate her voice. I hate how she drops her ‘g’. I hate everything about her and I’m a Conservative voter

When she was asked by Channel 4 why they aren't doing the border now instead of a few weeks - her response was very passive aggressive.

"As I quite clearly said in my statement"....

And then she failed to answer the question

FeltCarrot Fri 22-May-20 18:10:45

We commented on her lack of “g’s” too! Awful woman.

mbosnz Fri 22-May-20 18:12:08

She really, really hates, not being taken entirely at face value, and having her statements at all questioned. It does well and truly grind her gears. Don't we know who she is?!

ssd Fri 22-May-20 18:15:14

How many here voted tory!?

You've got what you voted for, a shitshow of a government.

peperethecat Fri 22-May-20 18:16:20

YABU to limit your question to her being an awful public speaker. She is just awful full stop.

chomalungma Fri 22-May-20 18:17:03

I notice that there were no follow ups today.

I can't imagine why not
