Prankster interrupts British PM Theresa May during keynote speech

Britain's Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson arriving to deliver his speech at the Conservative party conference at the Manchester Central Convention Complex in Manchester England Tuesday Oct. 3 2017. Johnson used his Tory conference speech to praise Pr

In light of the incident, O'Hare said police would be "reviewing the accreditation process with the Conservative Party".

Theresa May's Tory party conference speech turned into a comedy of errors on Wednesday afternoon when she suffered repeated coughing fits, a protester handed her a P45 dismissal notice, and the stage set began to fall apart behind her.

"A sense that actually you're there to do the right thing and that was in the substance of the speech but also, in a way, in the style as we saw her battling with that terrible cough".

Later in the speech, the set behind May further sabotaged her, as the letter F fell off a slogan promising that the Conservatives would ensure that the United Kingdom "works for everyone".

The Prime Minister's famous red ministerial box is also visible in the picture, which had been retweeted more than 500 times within 10 minutes of being posted. "What a disaster. It's a shambles, not a government", tweeted Seema Malhotra, a lawmaker with the opposition Labour party. Plus "there is no obvious candidate to replace her".

"The test of a leader is how you respond when tough times come upon you", she said at the conclusion of her speech, prompting applause.

In Manchester, cabinet ministers have been lining up to condemn the Labour leader, with Johnson accusing him of "economic masochism" and joking he would like to send him into space.

Theresa May has attempted to relaunch the Conservative party after months of turmoil, announcing a fresh push for a "better Britain" and apologising for the poor election result.

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".

May carried on with her speech, stumbling momentarily, and took the letter before bending to put it on the floor. "And I am sorry", May said.

Mrs May said the government was in favour of free markets but "we will always taken action to fix them when they are broken".

And she called for a more humane politics, saying "people are fed up with the game-playing, the name-calling". He said the conflict-torn country could become a magnet for tourists and investors if it can "clear the dead bodies away" first.

Speaking about Brexit, May said that she was confident they will find a deal that works for Britain and Europe.

May had little to say on Brexit, even as the negotiations with Brussels reach a crucial point in the next few weeks.

May, who lost her overall governing majority in the last election, had hoped to relaunch her premiership with her keynote speech.

Once back on track she promised European Union citizens who were anxious about their future in a post-Brexit Britain that they would be welcome.
