39;Boris asked me to give you this', stage invader hands May P45


Former Tory Party chairman Grant Shapps has said there is growing support among MPs for a leadership contest following Theresa May's chaotic conference speech. In his interview, Vaizey, who supported staying in the European Union at last year's referendum, said the Conservative Party is "split down the middle" on Brexit "and that's very bad for the country".

'They are Remainers, they are Brexiteers, ' he told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

The interrupted speech is the latest in a string of difficulties faced by Theresa May since her poor performance at the last general election, which saw her lose a huge lead in the opinion polls and fall short of maintaining the Tory majority.

She began by apologising for sparking the costly June election which cost her party its majority in parliament, almost handing over power to Labor under Jeremy Corbyn.

Seeking to draw a veil over party infighting, she tried to woo back floating voters tempted by opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn's brand of socialism, with a promise to cap energy prices and build more social housing.

British PM Theresa May was set to deliver a speech on Wednesday to restore her leadership in the already faltering Conservative Party.

The speech was also, at times, strikingly personal - May talked about her sorrow at not being able to have children and about her grandmother, who had been a domestic servant.

Mr Clark said: "Clearly she was struggling but it was a very personal and that [the cough] made it more so".

Grant Shapps says the prime minister can not recover following disastrous party conference speech. Cabinet Supportive? May has received public backing from members of her Cabinet, including Boris Johnson, the troublesome foreign secretary who had been criticized for undermining her leadership with his own rival Brexit agenda.

But arriving for a charity coffee morning in her Maidenhead constituency, the prime minister was determined to present an image of business as normal.

Even those unhappy with May would be operating on the basis that she is their least worst option and the likes of Johnson would only serve to hasten the Conservative's departure from government. "MPs' confidence in Theresa May is at a low point", said Jasper Lawler, head of research at London Capital Group, an online trading platform.

But another MP did warn: "The duty is on us to support the leadership with the necessary discipline".

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