Boris Johnson challenges May's Brexit plan

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
Orlando Vargas | 07 October, 2018, 00:52

"I have not met a single MP who thinks she will lead us into another election after the last disastrous snap election".

Three British government ministers privately support the idea of holding a second referendum on the final Brexit deal, a former junior minister said on Monday.

"We've had many countries trying to lower corporate tax rate for the past decade, but one common theme across every Group of Seven country's expansion is that investment never goes up", he said.

May urged her fractious Conservative Party to unite behind "decent, moderate and patriotic" policies, a day after her rival Boris Johnson trashed her Brexit plan and challenged her authority with a crowd-pleasing speech of his own.

It clearly mocked May, who once said the naughtiest thing she had done was run through a field of wheat.

However, rather than accept responsibility for the Home Office blunder which saw thousands of the Windrush Generation, who helped rebuild Postwar Britain facing deportation, May referenced the disaster to rouse support for Shaun Bailey, the Conservative pick for the 2020 London mayoral elections: 'If your parents come to the United Kingdom as part of the Windrush Generation, you could become the next London mayor.' The camera quickly tried to find Bailey, who was sitting a few rows back from the party's big names and cabinet members. As she put it: "We need to come together now".

"We are just asking her to deliver on the Conservative manifesto and on the Lancaster speech".

"Some markets are still not working in the interests of ordinary people", she said.

But the European Union is demanding new proposals from Britain before it signs a deal - and many Conservatives are in no mood to compromise. In and of itself this is a great accomplishment, yet in order for the Tories (or any other government) to keep on building on it, we need to see solid plans and actual policy suggestions that would provide better resilience to the vulnerable newcomers in the labour force.

Theresa May will round off the Tory conference with an attempt to raise party morale and convince activists that the Conservatives are about more than Brexit.

"We are entering the toughest phase of the negotiations. People would see that they would be simply being asked to vote again until they give the answer the Remainers want".

The big announcements - on cancer funding, scrapping the cap on council borrowing for housebuilding and ending austerity - will prompt critics to wonder why it took so long to confirm them.

She also clocked up more uses of the words "freedom" (15 compared with three for Corbyn), "security" (13 compared to six) and "opportunity" (eight compared to two). You tell us, essentially, the same story - that the British are proposing unrealistic terms that they can't get.

He also said that if the country bottles Brexit now, the people will find it hard to forgive.

What was most notable today was May finally admitting that the personal is the political. "'I passionately believe that our best days lie ahead of us and the future is full of promise", she said, with the implied caveat that it's her way or chaos.

The First british minister Theresa May called on Wednesday his party to the unit to succeed the negotiations of the Brexit, appearing overly optimistic, and even going so far as to sketch a few dance steps in the closing session of the congress of the Tories.

In a message to voters tired of belt-tightening, the PM said: "Because you made sacrifices, there are better days ahead".

But despite seeming to rally party members to his cause by calling on Conservatives to return to their traditional values, he disappointed some supporters by saying he would stick by May at least for now.

"It is no surprise that we have had a range of different views expressed this week", she said.
