Theresa May Throws Shapes To 'Dancing Queen' At Start Of Conference Speech
Now there aren't many of us who can claim we're particularly good dancers - but we've at least got the good sense to save our crap moves for when the clock strikes midnight at our best mate's wedding, when everyone's as legless as we are and we're guaranteed that it'll all be forgotten by the next day.
The same, of course, can't be said for UK Prime Minister Theresa May, whose dodgy breakdancing has been getting her in the headlines for all the wrong reasons after she was filmed busting some moves while visiting children at the ID Mkhize Senior Secondary in Gugulethu, Cape Town.
Oh, and then there's been all the times she's been photographed curtseying oddly to members of the royal family - something that's also not exactly helped establish her as the world's most agile being.
Well, she's been at it again, having been seen jiving awkwardly onto the stage at the Tory Party Conference today. To 'Dancing Queen' by 70s pop group Abba, no less.
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 terrible moves and a tongue-in-cheek choice of song. I know, so meta.

Naturally, within the blink of an eye, the internet had jumped onto Twitter to share their disbelief.
One person tweeted: "There has been some genuine WTF moments over the last 2-3 years but @theresa_may 'dancing' on to stage like a newborn giraffe trying to copy the 'ministry of funny walks' sketch is another level."
Someone else commented: "WHAT THE HELL JUST HAPPENED?!?!?!"
Another added: "Her advisers must really have it in for her. What might have seemed funny after a couple of cocktails is ridiculous and inappropriate in the harsh light of reality."
I mean, it's definitely one way to make an entrance - but I'm pretty sure there aren't many people talking about her actual speech right now.
Well, at least one person liked it:
As Swedish Ambassador I can only say Bravo to @theresa_may for starting her conference speech with ABBA's Dancing Queen. #CPC18

It's not the first time she's tried to poke fun at her own dance moves, either. Just last month she offered up some dancing advice to the Strictly Come Dancing lot, tweeting: "Get in touch if you need any tips."
Something tells us they might not take her up on that one...
