UK Prime Minister Theresa May is once again trending for her dance moves. May entered the stage at the Conservative party conference in Birmingham while dancing to the tunes of 1970s Swedish Abba's Dancing Queen. The video has now gon viral on the internet and various reactions are pouring in. Although the audience laughed and applauded her, not everyone on social media looked impressed by her attempt.
Tory deputy chairman, James Cleverly described May's dance moves as "classy" and MP Michael Fabricant called it "totally brill". A Swedish ambassador Torbjörn Sohlström tweeted, "As Swedish Ambassador I can only say Bravo to @theresa_may for starting her conference speech with ABBA’s Dancing Queen. #CPC18" Theresa May Dances on Her African Trip And Twitterati Can't Stop Comparing Her to Mr Bean, Watch Hilarious Video
Meanwhile, the Labour MP Angela Rayner described the dance as #cringe. The SNP MP Joanna Cherry said it was "an affront to my favourite song". May referenced her dancing again later in the speech, jokingly suggesting that some of the young people she met on her visit to South Africa might have been inspired to become “professional dancers” among other things.
Here is the video:
May was in the news when she danced on a trip to Africa for diplomatic events recently. She was also captured dancing with schoolchildren on the first day of her visit. She interacted with the students while they danced next to her. May again danced when she met a group of scouts in Kenya. And this is not the first time May is being associated with Dancing Queen. The Swedish group's classic son was one of the songs she chose when she appeared on Desert Island Discs in 2014.
