Has Theresa May promised to end austerity?

UK's May aims to gain Conservative control after storm Boris

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.

As Theresa May jigged out onto the stage at the Conservative Party conference to give her keynote speech, I had to ask myself, last year it was coughing, what's the affliction this year - until I realised she was dancing - to Abba's Dancing Queen coming over the sound system.

After three days of her party conference being dominated by the twin spectres of Brexit and Jeremy Corbyn, the Prime Minister will try to convince Tory members to back her plan for the negotiations with Brussels.

In her speech, Mrs May stuck to her plan, called the Chequers proposal after her country residence where she hashed out the proposals in July. She reasserted her commitment to finding a realistic compromise with the European Union - unlike some of her conservative rivals, who she said "are not acting in the national interest, but their own political interest".

It is a political choice made by the Conservatives to hack away at our public services and communities, leaving workers worse off while gifting huge tax cuts to big business.

Appealing to voters tired of belt-tightening, she said: "Because you made sacrifices, there are better days ahead". As she put it: "We need to come together now".

Brexit was a "moment of opportunity", she told a packed hall in Birmingham, central England, adding: "There is a whole world out there". Dismissing calls for a so-called "people's vote", the British PM said any second referendum over the issue of Brexit would be a "politicians' vote" as the people had already given their verdict in the 2016 referendum.

In a message to voters tired of belt-tightening, the PM said: "Because you made sacrifices, there are better days ahead".

Then the thing we saw immediately afterwards was that tweet about the Strepsils and the speech and we laughed along with her and she showed that humorous side of her. But she delivered a stinging riposte to his reported "f*** business" comment, saying the business community should know that "there is a four-letter word to describe what we Conservatives want to do to you - it has a single syllable, it is of Anglo-Saxon derivation, it ends in the letter K. Back businesses".

Donald Trump Mocks Christine Blasey Ford During Mississippi Rally
Trump praised Blackburn as a "true fighter" for the state, telling the crowd, "She's all about Tennessee values". Speaking at a rally for Sen. "I don't know", the president continued, amid cheers from the audience.

Journalists, analysts, politicians and others have reacted to the speech, and Mrs May's awkward dancing as she was announced at the conference in Birmingham. I think it's going to be carried by a very large majority.

May later lamented: "What has befallen Labour is a national tragedy", while audaciously borrowing slogans from two prominent faces of Labour.

May acknowledged that Johnson's speech had made her "cross" but said she was sticking to her Brexit blueprint, which would keep Britain aligned to many European Union rules in return for remaining in the bloc's single market for goods.

United Kingdom correspondent Rod Liddle told Mike Hosking Theresa May has most of her Cabinet and Conservative Party behind her.

The less domestic and foreign producers believe in the prosperous development of the country, the less they are willing to invest in it.

"If we all go off in different directions in pursuit of our own vision of the ideal Brexit, we risk ending up with no Brexit at all", she warned a Conservative party beset by internal bickering.

May's leader's speech confounded expectations in some respects with its confident delivery and refusal to engage, except lightly, in some of the key issues filling the news cycle.

"If we get it wrong – if we bottle Brexit now – believe me, the people of this country will find it hard to forgive", said Johnson, seen a lead contender vying to replace Theresa May as PM.

Any spending increases would not be expected to kick in until next year's spending review in any event; but it will be hard for the chancellor to avoid a shift of tone, after her upbeat rhetoric about voters' sacrifices paying off.
