 British PM May is not considering resigning after ruined speech, Sky says

 
LONDON, 05 Oct. - (ANA) - British Prime Minister Theresa May is not considering resigning, Sky news reported on Thursday, citing her Downing Street office.
 
“Downing Street: Resignation is not an issue,” Sky said on its screen.
 
A spokesman for PM May did not comment on the report. A spokesman for the Conservative Party did not comment.
 
May’s bid to reassert her dwindling authority was ruined on Wednesday when her keynote speech was interrupted by repeated coughing fits, a prankster, and even letters of her slogan falling off the set behind her.
