IAN HART: Default setting: if in doubt, blame Theresa May?

Like many others of my generation, I’m struggling to recall a period in our lives with a more sustained amount of pain, hurt and suffering in a relatively small space of time.

The terrorist attacks at Westminster, Manchester, London Bridge and Finsbury Park, along with the horrific events at Grenfell Tower, have shocked and saddened the entire nation.

With the death toll still rising, what happened in West London was truly horrendous, although I’m buoyed by the way whole groups of people have come together as a result of this devastating event for the right reasons.

I hope a full open and honest public inquiry will get to the bottom of everything and whatever the outcome I hope it brings some sense of closure for all those involved, fully accepting that nothing will bring back the poor victims.

It seems to me that Prime Minister Theresa May is getting the blame for Grenfell Tower, the terror attacks and any other negative situation that currently befalls the nation. This witch-hunt, with some horrendous biased reporting from sections of the media, is all getting a bit tiresome now.

Like the rest of us, like any human, she has her flaws. But regardless of her politics, I think she’s a decent, honest person, and that’s something we should be grateful to have in Number 10.

Modern society rightly goes to great lengths to wage war on bullying, or is that when it suits them?

Is some of the treatment currently being inflicted on our under-fire PM tantamount to bullying or victimisation?

Something we thought we’d probably never see in 21st century Britain.
