Delivering the #keynote speech at the #Tory Party conference in Manchester should have been Prime Minister #Theresa May's opportunity to put things right amid the in-party turmoil that she is facing and the questions raised over her leadership.

Tories fear that ousting May could set in chain a series of events that leads to yet another general election, and they worry that this would risk handing power to the socialist Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
