May is ‘Most Stressed’ party leader, according to Brits



THERESA MAY has had the most stressful year of all three of the main party leaders, TBG can sensationally reveal.

The PM topped the poll of 2,000 voters from Perkbox after a disastrous snap election and a series of political troubles in the last 12 months. In total, 53 per cent of voters cited Theresa May as having the most stressful year, compared with just 14 per cent for Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. Vince Cable apparently had an easy ride as Liberal Democrat leader with only 3 per cent saying he’d had the most stressful year.

However, when asked which leader had been treated the worst by their party colleagues, Corbyn was identified by nearly a third of voters (32 per cent) compared with 26 per cent for May. The poll also asked voters to assess the work ethic of their local MP. On a regional breakdown, Londoners said their MPs had the strongest work ethic.

Saurav Chopra , Cofounder and CEO of Perkbox told TBG, “The job of a party leader has long been seen as a high pressure role, but it appears to have been a particularly rough ride for Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn this year, with the latter being treated the worst by his party colleagues according to our poll.”
