United Kingdom leader Theresa May's slogan literally fell apart during her 'disastrous' speech

United Kingdom leader Theresa May's slogan literally fell apart during her 'disastrous' speech

Interrupting Theresa May's keynote speech to Tory members in Manchester, Lee Nelson - real name Simon Brodkin - approached the podium to hand the Prime Minister the fake document before being led away.

Britain's under-fire Prime Minister Theresa May was facing a fight for her political life Friday with a growing number of her own MPs said to favor a challenge to her leadership.

In one of the most freaky British political speeches in memory, May's address was ruined by coughing fits, a comedian handing her a bogus employment termination notice, and by letters falling off the slogans on the set behind her.

May's speech started with an apology over the snap general election she called in June.

Much of the anger among newer Tory MPs is understood to be directed towards Boris Johnson, who is perceived to have been overtly disloyal to Mrs May by setting out his Brexit red lines on the eve of the conference.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who goaded her in the run-up to the event with outspoken interventions on Brexit, gave May his full support in his speech on Tuesday.

She also said that she wanted to help young people get on the housing ladder and pledged an extra 2 billion pounds, or $2.65 billion, toward affordable housing.

Instead, the policies were overshadowed by a spoof P45, a coughing fit, and the Tory message literally falling down around her as letters fell off the slogan on stage.

As a result, you have a creature with all of Venom's powers, but none of Eddie Brock's (admittedly limited) morals and scruples. Variety is reporting that Michelle Williams is now in negotiations to join the cast of Venom .

Her aides sought to spin the speech as showing May's human side, countering the image of her being a "Maybot" who uttered scripted lines and answers during her election campaign.

"I know that she is as determined as ever to get on with the job, she sees it as her duty to do so and she will carry on and she will make a success of this government", Green, the first secretary of state, told BBC television.

Mr Shapps said the list had been growing and was now up to around 30 names, although none of those are now in the Cabinet, and claimed it is "probably the time to have a leadership election".

Grant Shapps, co-chair of the ruling Tory party between 2012 and 2015, claims having the backing of almost 30 party MPs including former Cabinet ministers.

When asked if she should quit, Vaizey replied: "I'm finding it increasingly hard to see a way forward at the moment, and it worries me".

"I was about to talk about someone I want to give a P45 to: Jeremy Corbyn", she said to a standing ovation.

"The test of a leader is how you respond when tough times come upon you", she said at the conclusion of her speech, prompting applause.

Cabinet ministers rally around May.
