Prime Minister receives P45 during speech at Conservative conference

Theresa May's new shoes
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.
"If ever the PM needed a metaphor for service and duty and resolution through adversity, that battling performance was it!"
U.K. Prime MinisterTheresa May just lived out every one of your public speaking nightmares during the annual U.K. Conservative Party conference.
The prankster joked that the dismissal notice was from Boris Johnson, Britain's ambitious foreign secretary, who came under fire earlier in the day for saying that a coastal Libyan city, Sirte, could become a tourist destination once authorities "clear the dead bodies away".
The British Prime Minister has insisted she is providing "calm leadership" with the "full support" of her Cabinet. "She will carry on and she will make a success of this government", he said.
But in more bad luck, as she finally reached the closing sections of her speech, the stage backdrop began to fall apart, with the letter "F" in the Conservative slogan "Building a Country that works for Everyone" falling off.
His allies are said to have stepped up efforts to canvass potential support for a leadership bid following the PM's speech.
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.
Shapps, who resigned as party chairman in 2015 in the wake of the Tory bullying scandal, said he believed he had the support of up to 30 Conservative MPs for the coup and had hoped to go privately to May and encourage her to go.
"I think she should call a leadership election", Mr Shapps toldBBC Radio 5 live.
There is growing concern, however, that a leadership contest could ultimately spark a general election in which the Tories would be ill-prepared to tackle a surge for Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party. The audience gave her ovations to help buy her time.
Brodkin's ability to get so close to the prime minister and his legitimate conference accreditation have led many to question the security at the event.
A former interior minister, May came to power past year after her predecessor David Cameron stepped down in the wake of the Brexit referendum in which he had campaigned for Britain to stay in the European Union.
"This is a view I have held for quite some time and quite a lot of colleagues feel the same way, including five former cabinet ministers".
