6. I think the Tories were taking ALL their votes for granted!

Lynton Crosby's strategy seemed to be: "You're streets ahead in the polls. No need for a major effort on your part, Theresa - in fact, it might be counterproductive, as our preparation and your track record in parliament have proven you're not exactly the nimblest of minds when on the spot. Just put yourself around the country a bit at some small gatherings of the faithful and our rentacrowd, repeating a consistent line we can spin into modest media coverage, keep as low a profile as possible otherwise, and it's in the bag."

He may well have some dirty tricks up his sleeve for the late-campaign panic. And there's always scope for Labour to shoot itself in both feet, of course.
