Officials to review security after British PM May targeted by prankster

A member of the audience hands a P45 form to Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May as she addresses the Conservative Party conference in Manchester

Theresa May's longevity as prime minister has been much debated since she failed to win a majority for the Conservative Party in the June election, but her "car crash" speech this week at the party conference has renewed speculation at a crucial time of Brexit-related talks.

Former Tory chairman Grant Shapps was revealed overnight as one of those behind the bid to remove the Prime Minister from office but has been blasted by MPs.

"But we did not get the victory we wanted because our national campaign fell short".

"I know Grant well but I believe he is completely out of touch, he has not been talking to his colleagues, he's not even in our WhatsApp group", the Chelmsford MP told BBC Essex. "Now we need a bit of uplifting", she told AFP.

For those now paying $9.99 per month for HD streaming on a maximum of two screens at a time, the price will change to $10.99. The company is raising the prices on its standard and premium streaming subscription services.

The former cabinet minister and chairman of the Conservative party said he had meant to keep his plot to topple the prime minister secret but May's aides leaked his name to The Times, forcing him into the open.

"These issues were completely ignored by the Conservative Party Conference".

But the Prime Minister, who did a round of several dozen radio and TV interviews yesterday before attending party receptions, had a bad cough and struggled through much of the rest of her hour-long speech, her voice weakening noticeably towards the end.

Since then she has struggled to unite a government that is divided over how the country should leave the European Union and what relationship it wants with the bloc after Brexit.

United States welcomes Iraqi victory in northern town
The Hawija offensive was launched in on September 21 by Iraq's army as part of its drive to dislodge ISIS from the country. The United Nations said on October 3 that an estimated 12,500 people had fled Hawija since the launch of the offensive.

Theresa May has said she is providing "calm leadership with the full support of the cabinet" amid an attempted ousting orchestrated by a former party chairman.

And Home Secretary Amber Rudd told the Telegraph: "We, Theresa May's government, want to. set out a better path, one that actually leads to a prosperous, secure and united country". It may seem odd for a former leader of the Liberal Democrats - and someone who has fought against the illiberal habits of Labour all my political life - to advocate joining the Labour Party. "She should stay", she wrote.

He said: "The Tory Party conference was a great opportunity to reboot the party and therefore reboot the country to give it a clear sense of direction and that didn't happen". "It never worked out for Brown or Major and I don't think it is going to work out here either".

But she says "it is our responsibility as a government to prepare for every eventuality".

Health secretary Jeremy Hunt said: 'Despite that nagging cough, which I'm sure made her come across as very human - in fairness, in not quite the way she's planned it - there was some real policy substance'.
