Theresa May Under Fire Within Her Own Party

Theresa May Under Fire Within Her Own Party”

The speech was created to rehabilitate after her General Election humiliation - losing her Commons majority in a gamble.

Business Secretary Greg Clark said:b " For her to stand there resolute and continue to make her message - and even make a joke about it herself - I think that takes guts and grace". "And I am sorry".

"I think she should call a leadership election", Shapps told BBC Radio 5 live on Friday.

But she woke up to newspaper headlines describing Wednesday's events in the Manchester Central hall as a "nightmare" and a "shambles".

May, who took office after David Cameron resigned following the Brexit referendum previous year, has appeared exhausted in recent days, prompting questions about her enthusiasm for the top job.

Asked by reporters whether he would quit following the breach, he said: "It is being looked at".

May is not a natural public speaker and isn't known for her improvisation skills - indeed, she earned the nickname "Maybot" for her sometimes wooden, robotic style. The possibility that her departure could usher in a Brexit hardliner is worrying to businesses and investors who want a longer, smoother transition than the one advocated by a popular anti-EU wing of the party.

As security agents escorted him out, Mr Brodkin quipped that Mr Johnson had told him to hand the P45 to Mrs May.

Air France flight with engine damage makes emergency landing in Canada
Air France said it is now working to re-route passengers to Los Angeles via the airline's connecting platforms in North America. The plane was about an hour off the coast of Canada when the incident occurred, Miguel Amador, a passenger on the flight, said.

"The truth is the overwhelming majority of Conservative MPs, the truth is the entirety of the Cabinet, the truth is the overwhelming majority of people, want the prime minister to concentrate on doing the job that 14 million people elected her to do earlier this year", said United Kingdom environment secretary Michael Gove, who had been one of the leadership contenders for the Conservatives alongside May when David Cameron exited 10, Downing Street after the Brexit vote last year.

During her speech, May struggled with a cough and a hoarse voice that forced her to pause repeatedly.

A supportive room full of activists at one point gave the Prime Minister a standing ovation, as she tried to regain her composure and an aide brought a glass of water and a lozenge. In the video below, you can see the letter "F" fall off the slogan "Building a Country That Works for Everyone".

And just as she did after the botched general election - in which she was widely perceived to have squandered an extremely strong position - May soldiered on.

Many of Theresa May's employees came to her rescue.

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said he believed Mrs May's speech showed a "great sense of duty", adding she "did really well" to cope with a persistent cough and a prankster waving a P45 unemployment notice in her face.

And then later, on Twitter, with humor.
