>> British Prime Minister Theresa May is set for center stage, closing the Conservative's annual party conference. But she isn't the same leader who struck a triumph of note last year. Her foreign secretary Boris Johnson has helped see to that. His briefings to the press on Brexit have fueled speculation there's discontent in her cabinet.
00:00:20
And that the man who's known for his morning jogs could be preparing a bid to run for prime minister. Reuters' William James has been keeping an eye on events at the conference where Boris has tongues wagging.>> Everybody knows that the party has been divided historically over Brexit.
00:00:35
The new thing that you've got in the mix now is Boris seemingly maneuvering. Everyone's trying to work out really what his game is. Is he going for the leadership? Is he trying to get himself sacked? Is it a combination of those two factors? That's the real big question ,I think.
00:00:49
Boris has denied he's after her job.>> Theresa May won.>> But in many senses, Theresa May's downfall is her own making. Last year, she was the newly elected PM talking tough on Britain's Brexit future. She then called a snap election a gamble which failed. Now there's a sense she's in charge of a sinking ship, with a Brexit-shaped target on her back, leading to a somewhat downbeat conference.
00:01:15
>> The main thing that everyone is talking about here after the election in June, people are wondering how do they tackle the rise of Corbynism? How do they get young voters back inside it? Around all the fringe events, if they're not talking about Brexit, they're talking about how to regenerate the Conservative Party.
00:01:31
>> I think leadership is about ensuring that you have a team of people who aren't yes men.>> No pressure, then. But with this speech Wednesday, all eyes will be on May for answers.>> It's not only Conservative Party members here. There are delegations from all the big business lobby is individual companies.
00:01:47
They're all looking to see whether Theresa May is going to be the future, and if she is, what that means for Brexit.>> Happy birthday Prime Minister May.
