6. Well, yes.

I was talking about her public appearances, in person or even in the media. When she wasn't absent, she was utterly robotic.

May was overshadowed up here in Scotland by Ruth Davidson's ubiquitous prominence in campaign literature, gurning and cavorting for the cameras, and ceaseless chanting of "SNP BAD" and "NO SECOND INDYREF" (which Labour and the Lib Dems joined in with) whatever the issue she was asked about.

On May's private brief visits to tiny village halls, the most we saw of her was Davidson circling her like a craven sheepdog as they pretended to deliver leaflets to a few twee-looking doors in rural areas for the benefit of the cameras - I think they abandoned that when the small number of people who happened to be in their gardens responded "No, thanks", and those who may have been in hid behind their curtains when they knocked.
