'Austerity is over': spending on public services to rise, says May

07 October 2018

Shrewsbury and Atcham MP Daniel Kawczynski said he wanted to support the Prime minister but he and local party members would need to see the final Brexit documents first.

The highly anticipated moment of this year's Conservative Party Conference had arrived - Theresa May stepped on stage, ready to deliver her speech.

Just hours after the Prime Minister appealed to the party to unite behind her plan, former Brexit minister Steve Baker, who quit over Chequers, urged her to avoid a political "accident" and rethink her approach to negotiations with Brussels.

Johnson, the figurehead for the campaign to leave the European Union and the bookmakers' favourite to replace May, has become the loudest critic, warning Conservatives that if they supported Chequers they could be signing up to the party's electoral death.

"The very timing of his speech, on the eve of the Prime Minister's keynote address, was calculated to upstage her and cause her maximum embarrassment", the paper said.

"Britain, under my Conservative Government, is open for business".

She says her plan is the only way to protect jobs and trade while also avoiding physical checks on the land border between British Northern Ireland and European Union member Ireland.

In an upbeat message to activists and voters, she declared: "If we come together, there is no limit to what we can achieve".

Looking ahead to the PM's speech, Johnson ally Jacob-Rees Mogg told Sky News: In an ideal world I'd like her to say that she's chucking Chequers and she's going to have a super-Canada deal. 'There are plenty of prominent people in British politics...who want to stop Brexit in its tracks...they call it a people's vote.

The pressure of representing the Old Trafford outfit is intense at any time but has been intensified by recent poor results. At one point United were playing with a back six, against West Ham , not Liverpool.

So, please let us all know what you think by leaving a comment below.

Theresa May namechecked the NHS more than Brexit in her conference speech, and did not utter the word Chequers once.

According to The Guardian, closing the gathering of party faithful, which has been marked by divisions over Brexit, the prime minister claimed today's Labour party had abandoned the principles of Gaitskell, Callaghan and Attlee, calling the recent antisemitism row a "national tragedy".

The Conservative Party crowd roared and cheered.

The region, which is part of the United Kingdom, has an open land border with the Republic of Ireland as part of the 20-year-old Good Friday Agreement that ended decades of sectarian violence. "We can not make the case of capitalism if ordinary working people have no chance of owning capital", she said. It mostly was focusing on a domestic agenda - jobs, the competence of the Conservative Party, which previously, it's definitely been known for, as well as just even the diversity of her own Cabinet. She announced that the government would lift the legal cap on how much councils can borrow to build new homes.

And in another call for unity, she attacked the main opposition Labour Party, saying their policies, including the renationalisation of mail, rail and utilities, would mean increased taxes and drive away business. If we all go off in our different directions...we risk ending up with no Brexit at all.' But was it enough to bind all the flailing, angry limbs of our political ecosystem?

With no agreement with the bloc over the divorce or a future relationship, the last day of the conference marks the beginning of what some officials predict will be a frenzied couple of weeks of diplomacy between London and Brussels as the two sides try to secure a deal to end more than 40 years of partnership. They have put their faith in us to deliver.

She admitted that the public needed to see that "their hard work has paid off" after struggling with cuts to public services in a bid to balance the country's books.
