Britain's Theresa May will carry on as prime minister, her deputy says

It didn’t really go to plan

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

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".

The Scottish Sun says Theresa May suffered another disaster as her Tory conference speech descended into chaos.

Instead, British Prime Minister Theresa May struggled through a cough-ridden speech plagued with interruptions, mechanical malfunctions, cough lollies, and pranks.

In the middle of the Prime Minister's closing conference address, Brodkin approached the lectern and handed her a P45 that he said was from Boris Johnson.

Downing Street has confirmed that Cabinet ministers have been calling her to offer support after claims that MPs are once again questioning her leadership.

But in more bad luck, as she finally reached the closing sections of her speech, the stage backdrop began to fall apart, with the letter "F" in the Conservative slogan "Building a Country that works for Everyone" falling off.

But soon after beginning her address, she was accosted by comedian Lee Nelson, real name Simon Brodkin, who strolled up to the stage and handed her a P45 - a form that United Kingdom employees are given when they leave a company, similar to a "pink slip" in the US.

The prime minister said councils and housing associations can bid to use the government's affordable homes budget, which now stands at a total of £9bn.

"We don't think that tells us very much about what she is going to do for the country which is what really matters".

The request was "signed" by Boris Johnson.

The Conservative Party chairman, Sir Patrick McLoughlin, was also blamed for his part in allowing the series of mishaps to occur, with some sources suggesting that he could be pushed out of his position.

Her speech was interrupted as what appeared to be a delegate from the audience walked up to her proferring a piece of paper which Mrs May took from him.

"It is our responsibility as a government to prepare for every eventuality", May said at one point.

"While we are in favour of free markets we will always take action to fix them when they are broken, we will always take on monopolies and vested interests when they are holding people back", May told the Conservative Party's annual conference on Wednesday.
