Laugh, we nearly shat. We have not laughed so much since Grandma died, or Auntie Mabel caught her left tit in the mangle. So goes the Derek and Clive song. However, yesterday this was a better description of us watching Theresa May’s keynote speech to the Tory Party conference. It could probably not have gone much worse as she was interrupted by comedian Lee Miller as she tried to set out her vision for the “British dream”. First, she was handed a P45 by the comedian Simon Brodkin – who plays the character Lee Nelson – and told her it was from Boris Johnson, the Foreign Secretary.
