    If this is true, the world's slowest train wreck just got worse.
    No gods nor kings. Only Man.

    Theresa May's speech at the Conservative Party conference was a disaster.

    'Pretty excruciating': Tory conference reacts to May's speech ordeal

    Theresa May’s speech was meant to be the moment she was relaunched as prime minister, shaking off her ice maiden image and showing she had the grit to carry on after the disastrous election in June.

    Aides wanted the speech to show the prime minister’s personal sense of duty and her determination to move beyond Brexit to focus on her domestic agenda. But there was no hiding the grim disappointment among No 10 staffers after May’s hour-long speech was torpedoed by three major distractions.

    ...

    The first interruption looked surmountable when a comedian managed to breach security and hand her a fake P45. But things got worse as she succumbed to a hacking cough that continued throughout the speech. The final blow came when several letters fell off a slogan behind her.
    "Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese."

    Things going swimmingly.

    US rounds on Britain over food quotas as post-Brexit trade woes deepen

    In a fast-developing second trade spat, Washington has teamed up with Brazil, Argentina, Canada, New Zealand, Uruguay and Thailand to reject Britain’s proposed import arrangements for crucial agricultural goods such as meat, sugar and grains after Brexit.

    The fact that the U.K.’s opponents include the U.S., Canada and New Zealand is a significant setback because Britain is trying to style its former colonies as natural strategic and commercial allies after it has quit the EU.
