The curse of the backdrop strikes May once again, as her long-anticipated speech on tackling the housing crisis is overshadowed by the decor. The Tories should be bricking it.
It should have been the shaky speech that made the headlines, but instead May’s bizarre design choice had everyone howling:

The PM is sounding slightly alarmingly croaky this morning. But the backdrop looks solid enough. pic.twitter.com/vIu8i7vmt1

The set design for Theresa May's speech kinda looks like something I would have designed using WordArt for a powerpoint presentation during an IT class in secondary school. pic.twitter.com/GmYpzCBAvW

Setting for imminent Theresa May speech on housing. Her backdrop is some fake bricks. Make of that what you will. pic.twitter.com/lrtK2ApGfj

Theresa May doing politics in the way I imagine my mum would.
"I've got an idea, if you're doing a speech about housing, should do it in front of Bricks and also cover your lectern in Bricks. Because houses are made of Bricks. You see.". pic.twitter.com/5w6OydD8YB
