Officials to review security after British PM May targeted by prankster

PA‚ÄĘTWITTERTheresa May was given a P45 form by prankster Lee Nelson during her speech

Business Minister Margot James said Mr Shapps does not enjoy wide support in the party after he resigned as chairman following allegations of bullying in the Tories' youth wing.

Speaking anonymously, one Tory lawmaker said May should resign now to allow a new leader to be elected because she would lead the party to defeat at the next election.

"There are some ex-Cabinet ministers or ex-ministers who are extremely embittered individuals who just want to get their own back on the fact that they don't feel recognised".

Conservative MPs were reportedly taking soundings on whether they had the numbers to unseat Theresa May as leader after her car-crash conference speech on Wednesday. "He didn't tell me why".

The speech was to be delivered during a four-day conference in Manchester, an attempt to restore Theresa May's authority after her party's loss in the general election in June.

May's speech was also marred by a comedian - who mid-way handed her a P45 (better known as the letter of termination of employment) - and letters falling off the bold slogan behind her.

The big question now will be whether enough backbench Conservative MPs sign a letter calling for a leadership election. Under the party's rules, a leadership race can be triggered if at least 48 of those MPs express their support.

Outside the hall, police arrested the prankster for a breach of the peace, and an investigation has been opened to discover how he was able to evade security to get within touching distance of the podium. "The solution is not to bury heads in the sand", he said. She went on to say that if the ministers made the land available and gave young people the skills to build the houses, the builders must ensure they "build the homes our country needs".

Environment secretary Michael Gove, touring radio studios to promote a ban on ivory sales created to stop the extinction of endangered species, insisted the prime minister was not facing extinction. The critical thing is the PM has been doing a fantastic job.

However Mr Clark insisted there was "huge warmth" for the Prime Minister and the poise she demonstrated in carrying on with her address.

The Daily Telegraph writes that Theresa May's political future was left hanging in the balance after her disastrous conference speech left her feeling "extremely distraught".

He said he had previously informed No 10 that a growing number of Tory MPs were keen to have a leadership election.

"The reason it's not miserable is because as prime minister I can ensure that government takes decisions that really improve people's lives".
