Enjoy a glass of Schadenfreude and watch the horror unfold below.
Security – How on earth in this age of global terrorism did well-known prankster Simon Brodkin manage to get so close to the PM to be able to hand her a mocked-up P45 (letter of termination)? As an aside why did she take it!?
Nerves – It was meant to be a speech that reaffirmed her position of authority after a long series of mishaps, so yes she was probably a little nervous. A solution might be to learn some public speaking exercises that can calm you before a big moment. Or become paralysed by an endless coughing fit. Whichever comes easier really.
Stay on message – When your entire political campaign is built on a slogan about working hard, it helps if someone had double checked the qualifications of the stand builder. Having the intern Blu Tack your slogan to the backdrop only to see it fall away mid speech was probably the best way to sum up the whole sorry affair.
