There are better days ahead - Theresa May declares end to austerity
07 October, 2018, 14:01 | Author: Elaine Woods
It was a warm welcome for a leader whose fragile position at the helm of her party has come under further pressure after the European Union rejected parts of her so-called Chequers plan and critics stepped up calls for her to ditch her strategy on Brexit, Britain's most far-reaching policy shift for more than 40 years.
"We need to negotiate on something based on the Chequers proposals", he said. "We can not outsource our conscience to the Kremlin", she stated.
The EU has rejected her proposed deal and demanded new ideas from Britain. If we stick together and hold our nerve, I know we can get a deal that delivers for Britain'.
"I was a party leader myself for 15 years and I know what the rules of party politics are, but now that the Tory party conference is over we should get down to business", Tusk declared.
'We have had disagreements in this party about Britain's membership of the European Union for a long time, so it is no surprise that we have had a range of different views expressed this week, ' she said.
In a pitch for voters in the centre ground turned off by Corbyn's leadership and the protracted rows over anti-Semitism, she said she wanted the "decent, moderate and patriotic" Conservatives to be "a party for the whole country". Forty-eight lawmakers would need to write such letters to trigger a vote of confidence in the leader.
She did not use the word "Chequers" - the name of her country residence where the plan was agreed by Cabinet in July - but aides insisted that this was not meant to signal any shift away from her blueprint.
May's rival and Brexit critic, former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, shared his vision of a post-Brexit Britain on Tuesday, during a speech in which he said the government should be cutting taxes to stimulate investment.
Here are the main announcements from the Prime Minister following her speech on Wednesday.
Michael Kors to take control of Italy's Versace
Versace had revenue of €686m euros and returned to profit in 2017, according to figures provided by the company. Donatella herself owns 30 percent of the holding, with the remainder in the hands of her brother Santo.
Mr Davis said: "We were quite interested in the fact that the Prime Minister didn't use the word Chequers in the speech and we were wondering whether you had been forbidden from doing so. Her strategy is to make pleasing noises yet say very little of substance, keeping the country in a holding position until her final betrayal is unveiled at the eleventh hour".
If May accepts the invitation, she will have a chance to convince her peers that a breakthrough is possible and a Brexit deal can be finalised before Britain leaves the bloc at the end of March.
May and her team are braced for a gruelling set of discussions: with EU leaders, with her parliamentary partners in the DUP, and with the European Commission, all the while withstanding ferocious friendly fire.
"It is no surprise that we have had a range of different views expressed this week", she said. "There are instances where I will see a Conservative colleague on the television saying they have written a letter to me when they haven't".
If the increase doesn't match rising demand for services such as social care, and these services are asked to make further efficiencies in real terms, "we're likely to see the pressure points we're already picking up on worsen", Andrews said.
Johnson said if the right deal with Brussels was agreed it could be win-win for both sides of the Channel.
"This is our proposal: taking back control of our borders, laws and money".
He added: "We are also told that an ending of austerity is completely dependent on her securing her own Brexit deal which is clearly not going to happen". Good for jobs, good for the union.
In her speech, May promised to deliver the Brexit the British people had voted for and there would be no referendum or people's vote - laid into the prospect of a Labour government led by its leader Jeremy Corbyn.
