Theresa May has been slammed by viewers for showing a ‘lack of empathy’ during a gruelling interview in the wake of the Grenfell Tower tragedy.
The Prime Minister appeared uncomfortable as she received grilling from the BBC’s Emily Maitlis on Newsnight over her actions following the devastating blaze.
The ’embarrassing interview’ came at the end of a disastrous day for Mrs May.
She has been heavily criticised for failing to meet with victims when she first visited the site of the fire on Thursday.
