Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt tells Sky News: “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 really policy substance.”

Theresa May’s speech – Snap verdict

 called for unity and positivity during her keynote speech at Manchester Central, which brings an end to the Tory conference.She also announced several new policies, including a push to build new council homes amid a national housing crisis.In a clear attempt to outflank Jeremy Corbyn on an issue which has been central to Labour’s appeal to young voters, Mrs May made housing a central feature of a speech in which she will also call on Tories to stop infighting.At the end of a four-day gathering dominated by speculation over a possible bid by Boris Johnson to replace her, she also told Tories it is time to “shape up” and focus on working for voters rather than obsessing about the leadership.

However, the speech was interupted by a number of unforseen issues including a prankster who handed her a P45, a coughing fit from the PM and the slow collapse of the set design behind her.

 

1.00pm: That’s that, then. Mrs May hugs her husband Philip, waves to the crowd and leaves. Thanks for following with us, it was certainly eventful.

12.51pm: She’s done – hopefully a hot milk and honey is on its way.

Mrs May concluded: “It has never been my style to hide from a challenge, to shrink from a task, to retreat in the face of difficulty, to give up and turn away.

“And it is when tested the most that we reach deep within ourselves and find that our capacity to rise to the challenge before us may well be limitless.That is the story of our party. That is the story of our country. And that is the resolve and determination we need as we turn to face the future today.

“So let us go forward together. Let us fulfil our duty to Britain. Let us renew the British dream.”

May says we are a nation of dreamers, “with the capacity to deliver those dreams too”.

Cities like Manchester fired the industrial revolution, she says.

Britain discovered DNA, and the lithium-ion battery, which powers all laptops and phones.

And in Manchester graphene was developed, leading to two scientists winning the Nobel prize.

She says George Osborne was right to back the ‘northern powerhouse’. She will back it too.

“So let us go forward together, confident in our values, clear in our vision, sure in our purpose.

“With a rich, ambitious agenda to follow. A bold, exciting mission to pursue.

“Let us fulfil our duty to the British people.

“Let us fulfil our duty to our country.

“Let us fulfil our duty to Britain.

“Let us renew the British dream.”

Her husband Philip rushes to the stage to give the PM a hug as she ends her speech, she might need it.
