Unify on European Union exit, May urges Tories

UK's May aims to gain Conservative control after storm Boris Stanley Johnson, Boris's father, has made some wildly incorrect claims about the Irish border

The BBC's political editor Laura Kuenssberg said it was the PM's task to show she could "change the conversation" and demonstrate that Brexit would make a positive difference to people's lives at a time when her future was an "open question" within the party.

At the Conservative conference in Birmingham, Theresa May said her party would set out its plans to boost spending once it has finished negotiating an agreement to leave the EU.

Cameron, who campaigned for Britain to remain in the European Union, resigned the day after the Brexit vote, but O'Neill stayed on as May took the reins, only to step down in September 2016 amid rumored tensions with the prime minister over her approach to China.

On Tuesday, former foreign secretary and leading Brexiteer Boris Johnson had urged Conservatives to "chuck Chequers" and completely break with the EU.

"If we all go off in different directions in pursuit of our own visions of the flawless Brexit, we risk ending up with no Brexit at all", May said in a warning to Johnson and others who aim to oust her or force her to change course. She emphasised it initially in the context of World War I commemoration, remarking that the lesson we ought to learn from that generation is "if we come together there is not limit to what we can achieve - our future is in our hands". We need a strong leader, someone who believes in Brexit and someone to deliver what the electorate voted for.

The leader of the DUP made her presence well known in Birmingham this week.

Confirming there would be no second referendum, she said: "It would be a "politicians" vote" - politicians telling people they got it wrong the first time and should try again'.

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.

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

Theresa May danced on to the stage at the Conservative Party conference to announce that the end of austerity is in sight.


"He is absolutely right about the threat that Chequers poses to our democracy, our country and ultimately the fortunes of the Conservative Party if we stick with it", Andrew Bridgen, a Conservative lawmaker, said.

I think it's an opportunity for her to say that there is an opportunity beyond Brexit because I think Brexit is not going to be settled in her own mind and in the cabinet's mind until the next round of discussions with the European Union.

"It is also the only deal that keeps the United Kingdom together, that avoids hard infrastructure on at border between Northern Ireland and Ireland or - even worse - a border down the Irish Sea".

France's Europe minster Nathalie Loiseau yesterday said the country would prefer Britain crash out of the bloc without a deal rather than accept a compromise which undermined the EU.

But then there's her u-turn to lifting the cap on local government borrowing.

She will re-iterate her commitment to helping people on low incomes by ruling out any increase in fuel duty in the Budget on 29 October. You tell us, essentially, the same story - that the British are proposing unrealistic terms that they can't get.

Pressure on some public services has been growing since before the 2015 spending review, which has led to cash injections "when a moment of political or operational crisis was reached", she told CSW.

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.

British Prime Minister Theresa May called for an end to austerity and encouraged her Conservative Party to get a good Brexit deal.
