Theresa May is still dancing: Somebody, anybody, please stop her

Theresa May is still dancing: Somebody, anybody, please stop her

British former foreign secretary Boris Johnson on Tuesday called on the Prime Minister Theresa May to abandon her Brexit plan for a future trading deal with the European Union (EU).

MAY: A second referendum would be a politicians' vote, politicians telling people they got it wrong the first time and should try again.

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

On the final day of her party's conference, Mrs 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.

May also name-checked a range of Labour politicians - including Diane Abbott, Jo Cox, Neil Kinnock and Clement Attlee - as she tried to paint the Conservatives as the home for "moderate, patriotic" voters.

"It acknowledged the fact that our country is a strong and wonderful country", she said. "It will be hard in the beginning, but the ingenuity and resilience of the british people, will help us to overcome" the trials of Brexit.

Probably her best conference speech since becoming PM, it was all the more effective because if sounded like she had finally found her own voice.

"I'm surprised I'm going to say it, but what I caught of the prime minister's closing speech, she positively surprised me", he told CNBC's "Squawk Box Europe" on Thursday.

After Britain's 2016 European Union membership referendum, Johnson pulled out of a race to lead the Conservatives, which was won by May. But she refused to rule it out, adding: 'The resilience and ingenuity of the British people would see us through'. It mostly was focusing on a domestic agenda - jobs, the competence of the Conservative Party, which previously, it's definitely been known for, as well as just even the diversity of her own Cabinet.

Another part of May's quest to show we're all in this together, was to become relevant to the masses: there was a dirty joke about there being a "four letter word...ending in k" that the Conservatives want to do to businesses, and that's "back" them.

Ian Blackford, the SNP's Westminster Leader, said: "The Prime Minister danced around the key issues - the disastrous impact of Tory austerity and a Tory hard Brexit".

May's announcement that the capital borrowing cap on local authorities will be lifted is anticipated by the Treasury to add an extra one billion onto the public debt, while another year's freeze on fuel duty adds an extra £800 million. "But if we remain united and keep our calm, I know that we can get an agreement satisfactory to the United Kingdom".

In a "no-deal" world the most likely impact would be a drastic fall in consumer and business confidence in the months following Brexit. She did a good job name checking key figures including Sajid Javid and Ruth Davidson - which was also created to combat the image of the party as culturally and socially narrow.

"But that is not enough to make you suitable to be Prime Minister, and it's not enough to set out a credible plan".

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.

If May accepts the invitation, she will have a chance to convince her peers a breakthrough in the search for a negotiated Brexit is possible and a deal can be finalized before Britain leaves the bloc at the end of March.
