Anyone watching Prime Minister Theresa May's speech today went through a lot of emotions.

MPs and activists stared at the ground, while journalists tweeted furiously as the spectacle unfolded: the most powerful woman in Britain was wrong-footed by a prankster with a P45 today and the fallout was at least as astounding as the stunt itself.

Oh, and what was she actually talking about again?

Let's not forget there were some policy announcements
