Theresa May kicks off her campaign trail and is due to meet Tusk today

Busy times for the PM
Theresa May was up in Nottingham this morning to kick start the Conservatives campaign for the upcoming local elections 4th May.
These elections are going to be watched very carefully as an assessment of May’s handling of Brexit. It’s the first big round of local elections since the Brexit vote and while nothing Brexit related will be on the manifestos to vote on, it’s likely to be vote of confidence on the government.
