I'm not a fan of Theresa May but most of these comments are just rude and un called for. You do such a good job of promoting science Tim.

can no-one put up even a picture of themselves alongside a controversial figure without people making downright rude and negative comments? What a world!

seems weird to refer to her as "right honorable" as she is anything but that.

Any chance you can put her on the end of one of those rockets and send her in to the sun? Cheers!

She’s not listening Tim. She’s just thinking about her l-o-n-g summer parliamentary recess. They’re not back until September 4th. It’s not as though there’s anything important going on. Grrrrrrr 🤬

Hi Tim, are you in Farnborough this Friday. I'm taking my son to the Airshow - He flies out to NASA next week to represent Europe in the International Space Settlement Design Competition and would love to meet you.

I'm sure whatever Tim is trying to explain it's beyond Theresa May's understanding. Like how we all must share this blue marble and we have more in common than not.

She wont care! It's all about the PR - how much has she taken from the Military?? Tim, you are a hero and I hope you talk her round - if anyone can, you can!

It might have made a pleasant change for Mrs. May to listen to some science and logic for a while.
