UK Prime Minister Theresa May addressed the annual Conservative conference on Wednesday, 4 October 2017.

It went about as badly it could have possibly gone, due to a number of factors.

Poor planning meant that comedian Lee Nelson handed her a p45 form live on stage.

She also appeared to borrow lines from The West Wing, lost her voice, and the sign behind her fell off the wall on which it was hanging.

It was a seriously memorable, if poorly executed centrepiece for conference.

Here's how a few of her cabinet members reacted as her disastrous speech progressed:

Not a lot of smiles, there.
