AFTER the UK party conference season came to a close with the disastrous speech by Theresa May, the SNP is heading to Glasgow for their annual get together.

Each of the main party conferences have been so stage managed down to the finest detail for years now that it was remarkable to see so many things go wrong for the Prime Minister.

They could all have been avoided, which makes the hour in which Ms May was on her feet all the more strange.

Entry to the conference venues is tightly controlled with security vetting of everyone who applies for a pass.

For someone, prankster or otherwise, to get so close to the Prime Minister he was able to pass a piece of paper into her hand is unbelievable in these security conscious times.

It was tempting to enjoy the spectacle of Theresa May, who has continued to display as Prime Minister the same heartlessness she showed as Home Secretary, being most uncomfortable and then watch as her entire speech unravelled before her.

But security needs to be stricter, the Prime Minister and party of Government deserves better.

While many people who are not Conservative supporters may be enjoying a chuckle at the Tories’ expense this week the security breach raises serious questions.

Quite apart for getting into the hall, how did the comedian, Simon Brodkin get to the front of the stage without being challenged?

To be fair he wasn’t to only comedian in the hall so it can be hard to keep track of who is a genuine joker and who is a Foreign Secretary for example.

How was he able to linger while TV cameras filmed the unfolding stunt and how then was he able to wander among senior cabinet ministers before he was apprehended and ejected from the building?

Theresa May now has the look of someone who is haunted and followed by misfortune, wrong decisions and bad publicity wherever she goes and whatever she tries.

She has gone from being the next Iron Lady, a steely Home Secretary, then a Prime Minister to step in and sort the Brexit mess left by Cameron.

Then the election campaign brought it all crashing down.

The slogan of strong and stable government has come back to haunt her as she presides of the weakest and wobbliest government in living memory.

Her soft TV interview with her husband ‘nice-guy Philip’ turned into a row about gender stereotyping with her ‘boys’ jobs and girls’ jobs’ quip.

She hid away from the real people during the campaign choosing closed photo-calls including a dark and dingy removals firm shed in Edinburgh.

Afterwards the deal with the DUP to keep her in power was farcical and made a mockery of her ‘no magic money tree’ claim on nurses’ pay.

Surely Theresa May has had enough. For the sake of the country and for her own mental and physical health someone should have a word and tell her to walk away.

She is clearly not up to the job. Britain deserves better.
