“Theresa is a bloody difficult woman but you and I worked with Margaret Thatcher [laughs].”
While miked and waiting to be interviewed by Sky News, veteran Tory MP Ken Clarke was caught commenting to fellow guest Sir Malcolm Rifkind about his party’s leadership candidates, including British Home Secretary Theresa May, who is currently running to be the next leader of the Conservative Party and Prime Minister.
