May declares an 'end to austerity' amid fierce attack on Corbyn

May declares an 'end to austerity' amid fierce attack on Corbyn

INSKEEP: It is really interesting that Conservative Party leaders, including the likes of May, have said all along they're not total fans of this Brexit thing but they want to respect the will of the people.

The British PM Theresa May appeared on the final day of her party's conference in Birmingham, dancing on ABBA's Dancing Queen, launched an attack on what she called the Jeremy Corbyn party, and she said that Britain is not afraid to leave European Union with no deal, but it will be hard for both sides.

But with rumours circulating in Birmingham that the prime minister has a tickly cough, she will be hoping there is no repeat of the mishaps she suffered during her conference speech a year ago.

But May also has her share of heavyweight supporters both inside the party and Brussels who think any alternative to her plan would make matters far worse.

She said that "leaving without a deal - introducing tariffs and costly checks at the border - would be a bad outcome for the United Kingdom and the EU" - though she refused to rule it out.

Eurosceptic MPs led by former foreign minister Boris Johnson have held a string of packed fringe meetings to argue against May's proposal for Britain to follow European Union trade rules on goods after it leaves.

Kohli, Jadeja slam tons to lead India's dominant display
Leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo claimed four wickets in an otherwise toothless West Indies bowling attack. In the third over of the day, Virat Kohli entered the 3,000-club at home in terms of Test runs.


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.

"But it's going to be more of the same, let's get behind Chequers".

"Even if we do not all agree on every part of this proposal", May added, "we need to come together".

In her keynote speech, Mrs May launched a stinging attack on Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, saying he had rejected his party's cherished values.

"It's important to support the only politician I can see who is actively campaigning to give people the Leave that they voted for", said Colette Wyatt-Lowe, 71, a councillor from the outskirts of London, while queueing to hear Johnson speak.

May appeared intent on stealing Johnson's spotlight, scheduling a flurry of morning interviews at which she unveiled a new immigration policy a day ahead of schedule.

Putin added that Russian Federation will contribute to the implementation of "Make in India " initiative. Pacts were also inked in the fields of space, nuclear energy, railways and space.


On Wednesday, Mrs May was keen to show she was in charge of the Brexit talks.

She told the party faithful that: "The British people need to know that the end is in sight...we get it...sound finances are essential, but they are not the limit of our ambition".

May said: "What has befallen Labour is a national tragedy".

Mrs May yesterday insisted her Chequers proposal, which she did not actually refer to by name, would maintain a "seamless border" in Northern Ireland, which she described as a 'bedrock of peace and stability'. But we had the people's vote and the people chose to leave, ' she said. An undeterred May called on her colleagues to work towards making the Conservatives a party "not for the few, not even for the many but for everyone who is willing to work hard and do their best".

And in another rallying cry for unity, she repeatedly attacked the main opposition Labour Party, saying their policies, including a renationalisation of mail, rail and utilities, would mean increased taxes and business flight. As well as displaying the old Conservative spirit of self-determination, May wants to build up support for her Brexit deal. He will set out the overall direction of public spending in this autumn's finance statement, with a review to distribute the funds to departments to follow next year. They have put their faith in us to deliver.

"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.
