'Chuck Chequers', Johnson challenges May on #Brexit

'Chuck Chequers', Johnson challenges May on #Brexit

In her crucial keynote speech to the Conservative conference in Birmingham, Mrs May said next year's post-Brexit Spending Rreview will set out a programme of increased investment for public services, as a mark that the decade of cuts following the financial crash is coming to an end.

Dancing onto the stage to the tune of Swedish pop group ABBA's hit "Dancing Queen", May mocked herself, jokingly saying if she lost her voice it was because she had been up half of the night super gluing the stage set.

It was a warm welcome for a leader whose fragile position at the helm of her party has come under further pressure after the European Union rejected parts of her so-called Chequers plan and critics stepped up calls for her to ditch her strategy on Brexit, Britain's most far-reaching policy shift for more than 40 years.

"And there's another reason why we need to come together".

May has had a tough year since a disastrous 2017 conference speech, when she was her plagued by a cough and interrupted by a prankster while parts of the backdrop fell down as she was speaking.

He said: "I don't think we owe a single penny to the EU".

'And our message to them must be this - we get it.

Mr Green stopped short of endorsing a Boris bid for the party leadership, but said "it is impossible to say what's going to happen in the future".

Despite the pressure on all sides, May has supporters in the party and Brussels who believe any alternative to her plan would make matters far worse.

Cable said that May said the Conservatives must be a party for the whole country, adding "yet she has overseen widening divisions in our society".

China and Russian Federation argued that the UN Security Council should reward Pyongyang for steps taken. The Trump administration is preparing for a second summit with Kim to talk about denuclearization.

James Duddridge, the MP for Rochford and Southend, made headlines on Wednesday morning by announcing that he had written a letter to Sir Graham Brady, the chair of the powerful backbench 1922 committee, demanding a vote of no confidence in the prime minister.

Johnson claimed her plan for leaving the European Union amounted to a "ridiculous slipping away of our self-belief" instead of the "freedom" that was promised.

There was also no mention of the former foreign secretary, who won thunderous applause from 1,500 activists on Tuesday as he called on her to "chuck" the Brexit plan agreed at her country residence in July.

Here are the main announcements from the Prime Minister following her speech on Wednesday.

"I myself was party leader for 15 years and I know the rules of partisan politics", said Thursday, Mr Tusk, after a meeting with the irish Prime minister, Leo Varadkar, in Brussels. "Leadership is doing what you believe to be right and having the courage and determination to see it through", she said.

Boris Johnson, who resigned as foreign secretary over Brexit concerns, described May's proposals as "publicly humiliating" during his speech to the conservative conference a day earlier.

European Union leaders have also rejected her proposal for Britain to remain closely economically aligned with the bloc, and gave her until a summit on October 18 to rework it. May also name-checked The Bodyguard, admitting she's been too busy with Brexit to watch it: "'[Politics is] not always glamorous, I've seen the trailers for the bodyguard and let me tell you, it wasn't like that in my day".

"It is no surprise that we have had a range of different views expressed this week", Mrs May said. And that means two things.

The EU wants "the best relations possible" with London after the Brexit, but it will definitely not "core values and interests the key", stressed Mr Tusk, noting that the 27 remaining states, "behind Ireland and the need to preserve the peace process in Northern Ireland". "First, honouring the result of the referendum. and secondly, to seek a good trading and security relationship with our neighbours after we have left". "It delivers the referendum, it keeps faith with the British people", she said.
