This is an arrogant misjudgement. Theresa May and her advisors have decided that the public does not need to be told what will happen after the election, or how anything will be paid for.

It has undoubtedly raised suspicions.
We are being honest with people, to save our NHS and social care we will put 1p on income tax, raising £6bn a year.
