May apologises for 'botched' election campaign

A member of the audience hands a P45 form to Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May as she addresses the Conservative Party conference in Manchester

She took a more personal tone - saying she did not mind being called the "Ice Maiden" and describing her "great sadness" at not having children.

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May addresses the Conservative Party conference in Manchester, October 4, 2017. That sort of thing is rife in politics, she said.

He said: "It is a concern that someone could get so close to the Prime Minister and it was an unexpected distraction, but she dealt with it with grace".

But a speech meant to strengthen her tenuous grasp on leadership was interrupted by a comedian who handed May an unemployment form.

There were also issues with the "Building A Country That Works For Everyone" sign behind the prime minister, which appeared to be falling off the wall. May is on a "final warning" after the "most shambolic conference speech in memory", according to the Times, while the Telegraph claims her future is "hanging in the balance". This being said, if you're going to copy from a brilliant TV show, you might as well make it The West Wing. Jeremy Hunt, the health secretary, described May's speech as the "ultimate tough gig".

"The PM has got her conference cold a little early, but she is fine".

Sterling declined versus all of its Group-of-10 peers and demand for dollar longs intensified as U.S. trading got underway, adding to selling by leveraged accounts, traders in London said.

Chief Superintendent John O'Hare confirmed that Brodkin had legitimate accreditation that gave him access to the conference site before adding that the accreditation process will be reviewed with the Conservative Party. We can do that and we will under her leadership.

The prankster said Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson asked him to deliver the memo.

"Boris has left me in the lurch!"

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.

She admitted the campaign was "too scripted, too presidential" and said she took responsibility for its shortcomings. As she spoke, Johnson was embroiled in another row, this time over Libya, following comments he made at a fringe event on Tuesday evening.

A senior ally of Theresa May has warned rebel Conservative MPs that there is no mood in the party for a leadership challenge.
