Craig Oliver: ‘May about to be returned with significantly increased majority’

Europe Editor and Presenter

Sir Craig Oliver, David Cameron’s former communications director, says he expects Theresa May to be returned to power with a “significantly increased majority”. Tom Baldwin, a former director of communications at the Labour Party and a senior adviser to Ed Miliband at the last election, says if Labour loses seats, its campaign cannot be judged a success. The journalist Miranda Green, who was former Liberal Democrat leader Paddy Ashdown’s press secretary, says the country has returned to a red/blue “1980s pattern of voting”.
