Theresa May facing enormous challenge as Brexit deadline looms

Theresa May facing enormous challenge as Brexit deadline looms

Prime Minister Theresa May will urge her fractured Conservative Party to unite behind "decent, moderate and patriotic" policies, a day after her rival Boris Johnson challenged her authority with a crowd-pleasing speech of his own.

As Theresa May jigged out onto the stage at the Conservative Party conference to give her keynote speech, I had to ask myself, last year it was coughing, what's the affliction this year - until I realised she was dancing - to Abba's Dancing Queen coming over the sound system.

Theresa May has now nailed not only her own colours, but also those of her whole party to the mast of HMS Chequers.

May acknowledged that Johnson's speech had made her "cross" but said she was sticking to her Brexit blueprint.

Addressing the final day of this year's Conservative conference in Birmingham, May said Britain was entering the "toughest phase" of divorce negotiations with the EU.

He has said numerous times every war ends with all sides sitting down to work out a solution, so why not begin with looking for a solution, makes sense to me. "There is a lot of confusion surrounding Brexit right now, and while some people believe a change of leader would be good for Brexit, I do not believe it would change anything".

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

Journalists, analysts, politicians and others have reacted to the speech, and Mrs May's awkward dancing as she was announced at the conference in Birmingham.

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. I think it's going to be carried by a very large majority. A party of patriotism but not nationalism. May is reportedly working on a proposal that could see her seek an all-U.K. customs union with the EU and has received the tacit backing of Ireland for such a post-Brexit deal. A catastrophic deal for us would be a border down the Irish Sea, which over a period of time could lead to a continuing divergence between Northern Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom.

The less domestic and foreign producers believe in the prosperous development of the country, the less they are willing to invest in it. "Don't let anyone tell you we don't have what it takes", she said. She announced that the government would lift the legal cap on how much councils can borrow to build new homes.

A party not for the few, not even for the many, but for everyone who is willing to work hard and do their best. So when we've secured a good Brexit deal for Britain, at the Spending Review next year we will set our approach to the future: debt as a share of the economy will continue to go down, support for public services will go up.

And in another call for unity, she attacked the main opposition Labour Party, saying their policies, including the renationalisation of mail, rail and utilities, would mean increased taxes and drive away business.

"It is no surprise that we have had a range of different views expressed this week", Mrs May said. They have put their faith in us to deliver.

There was also the promise that, should Brexit go well, as in, May's way, public sector workers who've had their pay frozen would see that thaw, because 'after a decade of austerity people need to know their hard work has paid off'. The June 2016 referendum on leaving the European Union exposed deep ideological divisions within the party (and, needless to say, the country as a whole) and May has struggled to unite party members, and her own Cabinet, around her Brexit proposals.
