Theresa May has diabetes – the Mail says that’s ‘shocking’
WHAT could be the matter with Home Secretary Theresa May? Whatever it is, it sounds terrible. The Mail on Sunday leads with:
“THERESA MAY: MY SHOCKING ILLNESS!””
Bad news for her. We wish her well. But is diabetes all that shocking, and worthy of a front-page splash?
The Mail then makes a career women who works and thrives in a tough world sound weak and wallowing:
My shocking illness: Home Secretary Theresa May reveals she has Type 1 diabetes and needs daily injections… but vows to continue her political career
She is “courageous”. She will “soldier on”.
Putting a brave face on her condition, workaholic vicar’s daughter Mrs May….said: ‘It doesn’t and will not affect my ability to do my work. I’m a little more careful about what I eat and there’s obviously the injections but this is something millions of people have… I’m OK with needles, fortunately.’
The Mail, however, is terrified of them.
Theresa, we have news: Marijuana could prevent diabetes and control insulin. Go on. Give it a whirl…
