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

"Some people have lost sight of the fact that political differences are not everything..."

The Conservative Party crowd roared and cheered.

May spoke highly of previous Labour leaders, saying, 'At least they had some basic qualities everybody could respect...they were proud of Britain...' unlike, she insisted, the current Labour Party leader.

"Compare Jeremy Corbyn's behaviour to that of his predecessors", she said. Would Jim Callaghan... ask the Russian government to confirm the findings of our own intelligence department? That's across the Conservative party, across the benches in Parliament and across the country as we all hurtle towards May's dream of Brexit. It was a nod to her much-mocked boogie during a trip to Africa earlier this year. As soon as the joint job of leader of the Conservative Party and prime minster ceases to be a poison chalice, May will be faced with an immediate challenge to her position - a challenge she has very little hope of beating.

But she acknowledged that, a decade after the 2008 crash, the after-effects were still being felt by many households.

Former foreign secretary, and one time London mayor, Boris Johnson called on Prime Minister Theresa May Tuesday to abandon her so-called Chequers plan for a future trading deal with the European Union.

If May accepts the invitation, she will have a chance to convince her peers a breakthrough in the search for a negotiated Brexit is possible and a deal can be finalized before Britain leaves the bloc at the end of March. "Blaming the European Union won't help them". Later: "Even if we do not all agree on every part of this proposal, we need to come together".

Referring to those comments Thursday, O'Neill told CNBC that the "slightly unfortunate words" were "unbecoming of a chair of Chatham House", but said politicians like Hunt and Johnson were just trying to appeal to pro-Brexit members of the Conservative Party.

"It is no surprise that we have had a range of different views expressed this week", she said.

He said: "It wasn't that I expected any impact from it, it's simply what I believed to be right". First, honouring the result of the referendum. Activists queued for an hour to see him speak only to be left disappointed as they were turned away due to a lack of seats.

That's why alongside the discussions about Brexit, actually what this conference has been focusing on is the changes we're making to people in terms of things like putting extra money into social care, to ensure we're dealing with the winter pressures, to the commitment we've already made for more money for the National Health Service, the changes we're making in the apprenticeship levy, to ensure that we get those good apprenticeships available for our young people. "They are our close friends and allies, and we should ensure it stays that way".

"I liked it", he said of her speech. And that's something they absolutely don't want to see.

"But we had the people's vote". British Prime Minister Theresa May on Wednesday ruled out the possibility of a second Brexit referendum, saying the second referendum would be a "politicians' vote". Think for a moment what it would do to faith in our democracy.

She appealed for unity in her party, warning her critics that if they split over their "own visions of the ideal Brexit", they might not get it at all. So I would like her to concentrate on domestic policy and what the Conservatives should be doing beyond Brexit: housing policy, financial policy, health policy.

Home Secretary Sajid Javid announced a 2% pay rise for officers despite a recommendation of 3% by the independent Police Remuneration Review Body for 2018 to 2019.

But May's immediate concern was to regain the confidence of her party and present a united front in crucial negotiations with Brussels over the next two weeks. Introduced a National Living Wage.

She'll announce that fuel duty will be frozen for the ninth year in a row, in a move she claims demonstrates to families that the government is on their side. "Fuel duty, May promised, will be frozen in next month's budget, because 'For millions of people their auto is not a luxury, it's a necessity".

Attacking Jeremy Corbyn for playing politics rather than considering what is best for the country, Mrs May said: 'We have a Labour Party that, if they were in government, would accept any deal the European Union chose to offer, regardless of how bad it is for the UK. It is of Anglo-Saxon derivation.
