British PM May defends Brexit plan after dancing onto stage

Adjust Comment Print

May shuffled on stage to give her keynote conference speech, seemingly giving a self-referential nod to the backlash she's received for her dancing with some equally bad moves and a tongue-in-cheek choice of song.

She warned that in-fighting over the details of European Union withdrawal could result in "no Brexit at all" and added: "If we stick together and hold our nerve, I know we can get a deal that delivers for Britain". The UK Prime Minister has divided opinion with her views on Brexit, especially with regards to the situation in Ireland. There would, she said, be no second referendum.

Her Tory Conference speech is thought to be a critical one in order for her to restore confidence in her Brexit plan and Conservative Party leadership.

"The British people need to know that the end is in sight and our message to them must be this: We get it", she said.

Her performance before her conference speech had a mixed reaction. This is not what we voted for. "Our best days lie ahead of us". May also launched stinging attacks on the Opposition Labour Party, which she dubbed the "Jeremy Corbyn party", as she issued a strong call for Conservative unity on the final day of her party's conference in Birmingham.
