Theresa May speech to draw eventual Conservative conference to close

May has had a tough year since a disastrous 2017 conference speech, when she was plagued by a cough and interrupted by a prankster while parts of the backdrop fell down as she was speaking. And last week, I was at the Labour Party conference up in Liverpool.

"The best speech I've ever seen May deliver", said one political writer, while another said: "Best speech of May's premiership". Yet again, she speaks up for all the things she opposed during the referendum campaign yet still nothing happens. But nothing has changed. Although, added the Guardian, there is quite a lot of skepticism about whether she can deliver. Did she take into account "the people" from different countries, who have lived here for years or only those with British passports?

She's got the fortitude, she's also got a little bit of humour.

Only a day earlier at the exact same spot Boris Johnson had once more highly criticised her Chequer's plan, and moments before she was ready to address the conference's attendees and the whole nation, her fellow MP James Duddridge submitted a letter, demanding a vote of no confidence in her name.

But shadow chancellor John McDonnell dismissed May's austerity claim as "a complete con", saying; "The Government has already told us that spending for the next four years will be hit by many more vicious cuts".

Poking fun at the Prime Minister's dance moves, the Greens' Patrick Harvie added: "Theresa May sees herself as a Dancing Queen, but that speech was more of an SOS". This brings about a critique I have towards May's claim - whereas in the long run, the United Kingdom economy will be able to compensate for the initial drop in GDP, we should not disregard the short-term consequences - 'In the long-run we are all dead' famously said John M. Keynes.

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.

Firstly, it ascertained that inflation was in a manageable range given the recent decline in food prices. Indonesia has a large current account deficit stemming from its oil imports.

But the European Union is demanding new proposals from Britain before it signs a deal - and many Conservatives are in no mood to compromise. But she also declared an "end to austerity". The reception in the hall was fairly warm, but could not hide the fact that the only reason she is still leader is that no one in their right mind would want to take over right now.

She painted an optimistic picture of post-divorce Britain, saying "our future is full of promise".

Her words were aimed at easing the growing frustration of some Conservatives who openly say their party is directionless, unable to set an agenda against the divisive rows over Brexit between competing wings of the party. "Trapped by the rabid ideologues of the Conservative right-wing, Mrs May has been driven to illiberal extremes on Brexit, welfare and immigration". She announced that the government would lift the legal cap on how much councils can borrow to build new homes. 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. "Championing a pro-enterprise economy is the only way to show the world that Britain is a fantastic place to create the products and services that power growth".

The UK Prime Minister is pleading for some cohesion over her plan to leave the European Union.

Theresa May has warned her Cabinet ministers that Emmanuel Macron (pictured in Paris today) is a major s tumbling block to a Brexit deal as he thins it can be reversed. Austerity began life based on the big lie that the financial crash was a public debt problem - it may be naive to believe the same people when they declare it to be over.

"Emotional arguments that stress the issue of dignity sound attractive, but they do not facilitate agreement".
