British PM Theresa May Sashay Onstage to ABBA’s ‘Dancing Queen’

British PM Theresa May Sashay Onstage to ABBA’s ‘Dancing Queen’

During her speech she pleaded with the divided Troy Party to unite and back her Brexit plans.

Her address comes after her former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson made a scathing speech yesterday calling on the United Kingdom government to "chuck Chequers" at the Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham.

Her boldest move was to insist that austerity was about to end a decade after the financial crash, and to promise that her government would loosen the purse-strings next year.

Something tells us they might not take her up on that one. There would, she said, be no second referendum.

In a fiery speech at the conference on Tuesday, the former Cabinet minister who had resigned over May's Brexit strategy said "Chequers is a cheat", which would "escalate the sense of mistrust" people have about politicians.

Aides played down the significance the absence of the word "Chequers" from her 64-minute speech, insisting her approach to Brexit was unchanged.

The song choice presumably comes from some on-camera moments of Theresa May awkwardly dancing along with children at press events, no doubt prompting some savvy political operator within the Conservative establishment to suggest "Dancing Queen" as her entrance music.

And it will fuel speculation that she is preparing to offer fresh concessions to Brussels ahead of a crucial European Union summit on 18 October.
