There will also be legislation introduced next week to put a cap on energy prices, a policy initially pushed into the mainstream by former Labour leader Ed Miliband in 2013.

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

But in early morning broadcast interviews, May was repeatedly asked about her relationship with Johnson after he set out four personal red lines for the Brexit negotiations to unravel more than 40 years of union.

May began by outlining the reasons why she joined the Conservative Party more than 40 years ago, stressing that the things that have made her most proud in politics have not been the positions she has held, but "knowing that I made a difference - helped those who can not be heard".

"I hold my hands up for that". And she managed to sketch out a decent response, repeating "that's what I'm in this for" as she listed tackling child sex abuse, racial discrimination, Hillsborough relatives and mental health services. "And I am sorry".

She admitted the campaign was "too scripted, too presidential" and said she took responsibility for its shortcomings. Given the year she's had, she needed to deliver the speech of her life on Wednesday.

Comedian Lee Nelson was arrested for breach of the peace after handing the P45 to Mrs May in front of a hall packed with activists.

He told Mrs May that the P45, usually given to someone who is leaving employment, was from Boris Johnson.

Others said the speech humanized a politician whose wooden campaigning style has seen her dubbed the "Maybot". The perpetual prankster's real name is Simon Brodkin.

May then landed a jibe.

After he was taken away by security, Mrs May joked to the crowd that the only P45 she wanted to give out was from Jeremy Corbyn.

As such, the test of this speech is not the compassionate response of the Conservative Party when Mrs May's voice failed her but whether she can improve the country's living standards while, at the same time, delivering Brexit and making the country's public services fit for objective in the 21st century.

With her voice barely above a whisper at points, Tory delegates stood to applaud several times trying to give May time to recover as she laboured through an address lasting more than an hour.

As if things couldn't get any worse, the letters on the backdrop behind her started to fall.

It was excruciating to watch, but it also won her sympathy in some quarters, including from Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.

Green says councils often complain they can not borrow money to build council houses or buy land for social houses.
