May PAID for targeting winter fuel & inheritance: Strategist blasts PM’s election farce
Mr McTernan, who formerly worked for Tony Blair, said the public had lost trust for Mrs May and she had lost authority in her own party.
Speaking on Sky News, he said: “Now people have had a chance to look at the costs and the benefits.
“When they looked at her manifesto, they saw ‘if I’m a pensioner I’ve lost my winter fuel payments, if I’m in my fifties, I’m losing my inheritance.
“‘I know the costs of a Theresa May government, her costs fall on me.’
