THERESA May’s day just keeps getting worse – despite a disaster-ridden speech at The Conservative Party Conference in Manchester earlier today, it has now been claimed that her keynote speech RIPS OFF a similar address given by fictional President “Jed Bartlett” in Hit Political drama “The West Wing”.
“It is when tested the most that we reach deep within ourselves and find that our capacity to rise to the challenge before us may well be limitless,” she said in her keynote speech.
It has now come to light that in season four of The West Wing in an episode entitled “20 hours in America,” President Bartlett, played by iconic actor Michael Sheen says the line: “Every time we think we have measured our capacity to meet a challenge, we look up and we are reminded that that capacity may well be limitless.”
10 Downing Street has been quick to deny suggestions of plagiarism.
“There is no question of plagiarism, but if you are interested in the PM’s choice of US television shows, she is not interested in the West Wing, she prefers Friends,” a source told an Irish news website.
