Police to review Tory security after PM prank

The chancellor hands Theresa May a sweet as she struggles to contain a cough

British political officials said they will re-evaluate security measures at government functions, after a prankster got within a few feet of Prime Minister Theresa May during a speech and handed her an unemployment form.

Some Leave-backing MPs may not want to cause instability which could risk Brexit not happening, while others may feel a leader who backed their side in the referendum is better placed to lead the United Kingdom in talks.

"The view of the party, both parliamentary colleagues and activists, is that they regard, correctly, the responsibility of the Conservative Party to be effective and cool-headed in government", Clark told BBC Radio 4.

In the closing speech of her party's annual conference that was overshadowed by splits in her top team of ministers and recriminations after a botched June election, May will try to take charge and reset an agenda dominated by the complex talks to leave the European Union. Under the party's rules, a leadership race can be triggered if at least 48 of those MPs express their support.

On Wednesday the country watched on in amazement as Theresa May's highly-anticipated speech to the Conservative Party conference descended into farce.

During the speech, notorious prankster Simon Brodkin, alias stand-up comedian Lee Nelson, delivered a mocked up P45 to the Prime Minister shouting as he was led from the hall that Boris Johnson had put him up to it. But as today's front pages illustrate, her speech nearly certainly won't be remembered for its content.

"That's what I'm in this for", she said, repeating the phrase at least eight times.

Shapps said he had the support of about 30 MPs including five former cabinet ministers and suggested some cabinet ministers privately agreed but would be reluctant to back him because they were on the "payroll".

But the prime minister was betrayed three times during her speech: first, by her own larynx.

The Prime Minister's official Twitter account posted a picture of the text of her speech on a table surrounded by Strepsils cough candies, Olbas Oil and a bottle of Covonia. "Hi @BorisJohnson, I gave Theresa her P45 just like you asked", Brodkin tweeted.

Tories fear that ousting May could set in chain a series of events that leads to yet another general election, and they worry that this would risk handing power to the socialist Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Deputy leader Damian Green says she will also announce "a return to council house-building". One senior lawmaker who believes May is deeply wounded said she would survive this crisis but the next one would end her leadership. But May's distress appeared to rouse the delegates, who gave her repeated standing ovations - and when she could not speak, urged her on by shouting "Come on, prime minister!".
