Theresa May rocked by 'no confidence' letter ahead of crucial conference speech

Conservative Party annual conference 2018

Theresa May has declared the age of austerity over with a message to voters that "there are better days ahead".

At any rate, her entrance at the Conservative Party Conference - set to ABBA's "Dancing Queen", naturally - wasn't just a self-deprecating reference to the recent viral video of her rather unconventional dance moves.

He also said Britain was looking at how regulatory checks on some goods could be used as part of a solution to move talks forward.

In a message to voters tired of belt-tightening, the PM said: "Because you made sacrifices, there are better days ahead. Nothing, sadly, has changed".

On the final day of her party's conference, May rallied members, trying to address their concerns that the Conservatives are becoming increasingly directionless under the weight of Brexit by calling on them to look to a brighter future.

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.

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

Trump calls Ford's testimony 'compelling,' orders Federal Bureau of Investigation to reopen Kavanaugh probe
Dolphin told the Times through her lawyer, "I think Brett must have me confused with someone else, because I never kissed him". When Kavanaugh was nominated to be a justice on the Supreme Court in July, the school immediately expressed its delight.

The speech did not impress major pro-Brexit figures including Nigel Farage, who called it "politically correct beyond belief" and like "the relaunch of the [Social Democrats]".

With no agreement with the bloc over the divorce or a future relationship, the last day of the conference marks the beginning of what some officials predict will be a frenzied couple of weeks of diplomacy between London and Brussels as the two sides try to secure a deal to end more than 40 years of partnership.

Speaking at a DUP fringe event on Tuesday night, Foster said any extra checks would cause "difficulty" and added that she would be "reiterating" her position to the PM. "Our future is in our hands". Criticism from the left, such as Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, is much to be expected - but May has also suffered sharp rebukes from fellow conservatives. After winning the party leadership battle in 2016, she sought to solidify her claim with a spring 2017 election, but the Conservatives lost 13 seats and needed the pledge of Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party and their 10 seats to remain in power. May made it clear she won't back down. "She mentioned compromise a lot, and it's an essential part of politics", said Samuel Davidson, 18, a Tory member from Wales who doesn't support her Brexit strategy.

But she acknowledged that, a decade after the 2008 crash, the after-effects were still being felt by many households. "Some people still feel that our economy isn't working for them".

"We must show everyone in this country that we are that party".

And she warned she was ready to take further action against utility firms which punish loyal customers with higher prices. So I would like her to concentrate on domestic policy and what the Conservatives should be doing beyond Brexit: housing policy, financial policy, health policy. She reasserted her commitment to finding a realistic compromise with the European Union - unlike some of her conservative rivals, who she said "are not acting in the national interest, but their own political interest". "I really did. I'm not convinced she's going to be strong enough to walk away [from European Union negotiations], and we'd be happier to walk away than anything else that the European Union are promising us right now".
