Theresa May was heckled by an audience member as she started a speech at the Conservative Party’s Wales conference, where the Prime Minister was told to “resign”. The Conservative Party suffered a massive defeat in the local elections losing over 500 seats, with the Liberal Democrats, Green Party and Independent candidates picking up votes. As the Prime Minister started her speech, the heckler stood up and shouted out: “Why don’t you resign?”
Jeers were heard from some members of the audience before some started chanting and the heckler was escorted out of the venue.
Responding to the heckler the Prime Minister started her speech in Welsh, saying: “Good afternoon”, which prompted a round of applause.
Then, speaking in English, Mrs May said: “It’s great to be back in North Wales again.
“I have to say, my experience of North Wales is that everybody I meet here is friendly.”

Why don’t you resign?
Commenting on the incident, Sky News host Adam Boulton said: “This is Llangollen in Wales where the Prime Minister is speaking to the Welsh Tories.
“As you can see a gentleman has clearly disrupted and is being escorted out.”
It comes after the Tories suffered huge loses in the local elections in England, losing over 500 councillors, with some blaming Brexit chaos
