I Maybot. The Rise and Fall

John Crace

The Gibraltar Garrison Library (Festival HQ)

John Crace, the parliamentary sketch writer who coined the satirical name Maybot, takes a wry look at Theresa May’s time in Downing Street.

Crace dreamt up the term to describe May’s ‘malfunctioning public appearances’. He has been following the Brexit dealings and political machinations of the Prime Minister in his witty daily sketch column in the Guardian.

Crace also writes the Guardian’s Digested Read column, which takes a sideways and shortened look at popular books of the day. His books include Harry’s Games: Inside the Mind of Harry Redknapp and The Digested Twenty-first Century.
