May shuffled on stage to give her keynote conference speech, seemingly giving a self-referential nod to the backlash she's received for her dancing with some equally bad moves and a tongue-in-cheek choice of song.

"We have had disagreements in this party about Britain's membership of the European Union for a long time". However, many lauded the prime minister for her ability to laugh at herself.

Dismissing calls for a so-called "people's vote", the British PM said any second referendum over the issue of Brexit would be a "politicians' vote" as the people had already given their verdict in the 2016 referendum.

Theresa May promised an end to austerity after an eight-year squeeze on spending as she closed a turbulent Conservative conference with a commitment to secure a Brexit that delivers for the entire country.

Something tells us they might not take her up on that one.

She even made a joke about it as she began her speech Wednesday.

Following her meeting with European Union leaders in Salzburg in September, the United Kingdom leader has come under fire for her proposed "Chequers" Brexit plan which was heavily criticised by the European Union and Brexiteers. This is not what we voted for.

Mrs May also referenced her dancing a number of times in the speech, which focused on Britain's departure from the European Union and took aim at opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn.
