British Prime Minister insists she has "full support" of Cabinet

Grant Shapps former chairman of the Conservatives is a second-rater driven by vanity writes Andrew Pierce
"A lot of the people who were there in the hall and watching it on TV will have admired, frankly, the guts and the grace the PM showed", he told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.
Mr Shapps was a minister in David Cameron's government but an ally of the former premier said he has misjudged the situation. Speaking anonymously, one Tory lawmaker said May should resign now to allow a new leader to be elected because she would lead the party to defeat at the next election.
Several Tory MPs have thrown their support behind Mrs May, including Home Secretary Amber Rudd, Education Secretary Michael Gove and Broxbourne representative Charles Walker.
The source also claimed that Downing Street's gamble to flush Mr Shapps out by briefing the media first had led to more people on his list converting into actual letters sent to the influential 1922 Committee.
Environment secretary Michael Gove, touring radio studios to promote a ban on ivory sales created to stop the extinction of endangered species, insisted the prime minister was not facing extinction. Grant has many talents but one thing he doesn't have is following in the party.
'It never worked out for Brown or Major and I don't think it is going to work out here either'.
According to party rules, 15 percent of MPs - in this case 48 MPs - need to back a no confidence vote against the leader to trigger a leadership contest. "Hi @BorisJohnson, I gave Theresa her P45 just like you asked", Brodkin tweeted.
May later posted a photo of her desk, which had the copy of her speech, the British Prime Minister's red box and some cough lozenges to lighten up the fiasco.
However, her allies are backing the PM - saying Mrs May showed grit as she struggled through her speech despite illness.
Some Leave-backing MPs may not want to cause instability which could risk Brexit not happening, while others may feel a leader who backed their side in the referendum is better placed to lead the United Kingdom in talks. "I was about to talk about someone I want to give a P45 to: Jeremy Corbyn", she said to a standing ovation. She didn't look at ease delivering a speech to the attendant masses and must have been painfully aware of her supposed challenger for the party leadership, Boris Johnson, hanging on her every word.
A spokesman for the Prime Minister confirmed there will be a "thorough investigation into what's happened [with regards to security], and that despite the clear issues with her delivery, the Prime Minister is in good health and was pleased with the way the speech went". "The solution is not to bury heads in the sand", he said.
