The Conservative party has come under fire for only taking questions from an ptr-arranged list of journalists at Theresa May campaign events.
Tweeting from the Tory campaign event in York this morning Channel 4 News politics reporters Michael Crick said: “Theresa May in York right now, addressing Tory candidates, councillors & activists, not local York voters.
“Only pre-arranged journalists get questions at May events. Those chosen asked by May aide to state Qs in advance.
“I was told by May aide I wasn’t on list to ask May a question, & there was no point in putting my hand up to ask one.
“What shocks me is reporters collaborate with May press team by agreeing to reveal their questions to them in advance.
“One reporter told me May aides made clear if he didn’t state his question in advance then he wouldn’t get a question.
