Some UK Conservative lawmakers say embattled May must go

Theresa May was under pressure to deliver a commanding performance but was interrupted by a coughing fit

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.

He told BBC Radio's Today program that the party needs to concentrate on being "effective and cool-headed" in government and that there would be no patience with any "distractions".

'Next week I am going to be updating MPs on my Florence speech, which has given real momentum to the Brexit talks, and I will also be introducing a draft Bill to cap energy prices, which will stop ordinary working families from being ripped off'.

Calls for the British premier's resignation have been growing ever since a doomed general election in June, which lost the Tories their overall majority in Parliament.

The Chief Minister had been at the party conference, which was held in Manchester, discussing the Island's post-Brexit plans with senior Conservative officials.

In one of the most weird British political speeches in memory, Ms May's address on Wednesday to her annual conference was ruined by coughing fits, a comedian handing her a bogus employment termination notice, and by letters falling off the slogans on the set behind her.

"Boris told me to hand her a P45", he told Reuters.

Just when she needed a rousing, commanding speech to restore authority over her warring Conservative Party, she endured a nightmare.

Business minister Margot James has claimed the plot to oust May was being led by "some ex-Cabinet ministers or ex-ministers who are extremely embittered individuals who just want to get their own back on the fact that they don't feel recognised".

Shapps said in media interviews: "I believe Theresa May is very decent person and unfortunately fought an election that didn't work out".

"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.

Mrs May retorted with a jibe aimed at the Labour Party leader, saying: "It's Jeremy Corbyn who should be given a P45". "The solution is not to bury heads in the sand", he said.

Instead, British Prime Minister Theresa May struggled through a cough-ridden speech plagued with interruptions, mechanical malfunctions, cough lollies, and pranks.

But another MP did warn: "The duty is on us to support the leadership with the necessary discipline".

The Prime Minister also said it will invest an additional £2 billion (S$3.6 billion) in affordable housing - taking the total affordable housing budget to nearly £9 billion.
