Protester interrupts British PM May's keynote party speech

Lee Nelson escorted from Tory conference after handing Theresa May her P45

Theresa May's keynote speech to the Conservative Party conference in Manchester was interrupted after a man emerged from the audience and handed her a sheet of paper marked P45.

As she restarted her speech after the P45 incident, the Prime Minister said: "I was about to talk about someone I would like to give a P45 to and that's Jeremy Corbyn".

Mrs May's speech was also interrupted by fits of coughing, which she laughed off.

She apologised to Tory activists for running an election campaign earlier this year which was "too scripted, too presidential" and allowed the Conservatives to be painted as the party of continuity at a time when voters wanted change.

The key announcement was her long-promised cap on energy bills, the Prime Minister announcing that a draft bill would be passed next week to "end rip-off energy prices once and for all".

She finished with a passage which could have been tailor-made for her unexpectedly disappointing performance.


Theresa did her best to battle through her cough, taking large sips of water, before her voice broke completely and she descended into a coughing fit. "When confronted with adversity, if you find the will to pull through".

Her fellow party members gave her a standing ovation afterwards.

Things got worse for May when two letters from a sign with the conference's slogan, "Building a country that works for everyone", fell off while she was speaking.

But what exactly is the British dream?

Again there were calls for Johnson to resign or be sacked, demands that May had hoped had been put aside after the foreign minister pledged his loyalty to her after setting out his own Brexit plan in a local newspaper. "An opportunity lost and there aren't many left".
