Theresa May with YouTuber Riyadh Khalaf

Prime Minister Theresa May held her first LGBT reception the week.

Members of the LGBT community gathered in the garden of 10 Downing Street for the summer reception for a special celebration of pride season.

It’s not the first reception of its kind – past PMs Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and David Cameron also held similar events.

But this summer gathering came with something of a surprise chat for Mrs May.

LGBT people from across the country were in attendance – journalists, activists, politicians, volunteers and members of the Armed Forces, to name some.

Mrs May made her way around the garden meeting the invited cohort of guests, until she came to some sailors.

According to The Times Diary, two submariners chatted to Mrs May about the challenges they face working under the sea.

The pair informed the PM that internet bandwidth was terrible – could it be improved?

“That is an issue we can certainly look into improving,” the prime minister told them.

“Thank you,” one of the sailors replied.

According to The Times’ diary mole, one of the sailors, enjoying the complimentary wine, opted to elaborate on his internet woes.

“The problem,” he told the British PM, “is we can’t download any porn.

“We have to take it with us on our hard drives.”

Mrs May swiftly moved on to her next guest.
