Now you can write your own sign to fall down behind Theresa May

Procrastination of the highest order.

Theresa May’s conference speech was marred by coughing, a prankster and a sign which fell down a letter at a time.

Now a new website lets you have a little bit of fun at the Prime Minister’s expense – creating your own sign which will tumble from view.

It’s procrastination of the highest order.

The original sign read: “Building a country that works for everyone” – or at least it did for a while.

The British Drea website is named in reference to another part of May’s speech where she talked of “the British dream”.

People can share a link to their creativity online.

As the pretend letters swing and fall, May is animated glancing around the world and clearing her throat.

Phrases shared on social media touched on Brexit, Boris Johnson, the value of the pound – and, of course, one particular pre-election comment.
