A former minister is also said to be collecting signatures in order to force a leadership contest.
Tory MP Margot James said: “There are some ex-ministers who are extremely embittered individuals, who just want to get their own back.”
The Prime Minister had hoped to relaunch her premiership following her election embarrassment at the hands of veteran socialist Jeremy Corbyn.
However, instead of stamping authority on the party conference she was only able to draw sympathy from many spectators.
Speaking on Newsnight columnist Jenni Russell said: “The fact is it was impossible to take the speech in whilst she was talking because you were thunderstruck. You got caught up in the narrative of extreme sympathy.
Mr Dale agreed by saying many of his non-political friends had been feeling sorry for Mrs May.
He said: “That is not a partially good place to be for any politician with people feeling sorry for you and I think today that has been exacerbated.”
The Prime Minister was said to be “extremely distraught” following a speech blighted by coughing fits and a TV prankster’s stunt.
Mrs May struggled to complete sections of the address after being hit by coughing attacks and was interrupted by prankster Lee Nelson who handed her a fake P45 from Boris Johnson.
To cap it off letters started to fall off the slogan written behind the Prime Minister.
Following the attacks on the PM in the wake of her difficult speech, the LBC host warned against forcing her out.
He said: “If Tory MPs think that the way to get through this now is to depose Theresa May, they should be careful what they wish for.”
The potential replacements were also called into question with Ms Russell claiming Boris Johnson had damaged himself with his recent discretions, while Ruth Davidson and Amber Rudd were not in a position to take over, leaving just David Davis as the only option.
Mrs may was also praised for her determination a coolness under pressure as she made it to the end of her speech despite the distractions.
Speaking of her ability under pressure Mr Dale insisted the Prime Minister is the sort of person you can’t in charge in those situations.
