It was supposed to be one of the most important speeches of British Prime Minister Theresa May's political career, one that would quell speculation over her leadership position and unite the Conservative Party behind her. P45 is the form British people get when they leave their job.

As he was bundled away by security, the joker said "Boris told me to do it".

After Ms May's bungled election, her failure to unite the cabinet and a poor party conference, "the writing is on the wall", he said.

Brodkin had previously showered ex-FIFA President Sepp Blatter with money in a similar stunt.

It then quickly took an awkward turn as the prime minister started to lose her voice before suffering a coughing fit.

Making housing her main theme, May said her government would fix the broken housing market, with the message to young families: "Help is on the way".

But she defined the "British dream" for most people as the prospect that "their children will do better than themselves".

Rising prices have made home ownership an increasingly elusive goal for many, especially in London and other big cities across Britain.

The prime minister is also under pressure from members of her own party and from Brussels over the Brexit negotiations, which are moving slowly. "I believe it is profoundly in all our interests for the negotiations to succeed, but I know some are anxious whether we are prepared in the event that they do not".

Asked to characterise her mood as she came off stage, the source said: "Good". What we're doing is concentrating on delivering and governing effectively. The crisis comes at a sensitive time for Brexit talks, and risks further postponing any progress.

It was an election that at one point, she looked unlikely to win, but surely, the keynote speech should be seen as an opportunity to look forwards and not to dwell on the past.

A spokesman for the Conservative Party did not respond to requests for comment.

He said the "overwhelming majority" of Tory MPs - including the "entirety" of the Cabinet - wanted her to carry on.

May is trying to regain momentum by painting the government as a champion of aspiration.

MPs elected in June are reluctant to move against the prime minister, given they've only been in office less than four months. Senior figures within the party suggested that the rebellion was still significantly short of this number.
