People weren't convinced Theresa May was being asked the tough questions during her LBC interview
Unfortunately, a half-hour interview just didn’t feel like enough.
When Theresa May appeared on LBC, many felt it was an opportunity to see her answer some probing political questions. However, not everyone was satisfied with the half-hour interview with Nick Ferrari.
The first 10 minutes were dedicated to Ferrari asking the Prime Minister a bit more about herself. Yes, it was a rare glimpse into May’s personal life, but many people were disappointed with the lack of political questions.
Well it seems like @LBC's interview with Theresa May is more like 'this is your life'.— Doug Kerr (@Doug1177) May 11, 2017
Is this the one show?? #LBCLeadersLive— vc (@vacuouari) May 11, 2017
In fact, the first question was about May not having any children – something many people were particularly displeased with.
Theresa May goes on LBC to be questioned about politics... then gets asked about not having children??? Where's the relevance— grace (@Grace_Ashwell) May 11, 2017
Nick Ferrari opens with question about Theresa May's childless marriage. Is this 2017? Completely irrelevant #LBCLeadersLive— Lewis Hopkins (@LewLew94) May 11, 2017
Ferrari followed this up with questions about her faith, her parents, and even her signature dish. For many, these just weren’t the issues they wanted to hear May speak on.
On Twitter, some started coming up with suggested questions.

@lbc this interview?! Next you'll be asking Theresa May's favourite colour.— May (@gawdonbennet) May 11, 2017
The show’s format was based on listener’s questions – so some people were pretty disappointed when there was only time for three questions before the interview was over.
You're having a laugh?! 3 questions?? #lbcleaderslive— E (@emiliki_) May 11, 2017

However, not everyone was left wanting more at the end of the interview.
Great interview with Theresa May on #LBCLeadersLive. Easy to line up a bunch of tricky questions but she's handling them well.— Graham Benton (@TheErgDaddy) May 11, 2017
Now, many people are keen to see what kind of questions the other party leaders are asked when they appear on LBC Leaders Live in the coming weeks.
