In August, NME asked the big question that we all needed answering – is Theresa May the world’s worst dancer?
The resounding answer was yes, of course she is. The proof was pretty definitive – cameras captured the Maybot busting out some seriously wooden moves while visiting a group of children in South Africa.
But yesterday, something remarkable happened – she tried to own the joke.
Instead of doing the sensible thing and retiring from dance floors for the rest of her life, she danced onto the Tory Conference stage like her increasingly uncertain career depended on it.
And as the below video shows, it might be the single worst routine to ABBA’s Dancing Queen that the world has every seen.
