May talks about her plans
Theresa May will set out her vision for the UK today at the last day of the Tory Party conference.
She will say: “That’s what government’s about: action. It’s about doing something, not being someone. About identifying injustices, finding solutions, driving change.
“Taking, not shirking, the big decisions. Having the courage to see things through.”
“I want to set our party and our country on the path towards the new centre ground of British politics – built on the values of fairness and opportunity – where everyone plays by the same rules and where every single person, regardless of their background or that of their parents, is given the chance to be all they want to be.
May will hit out at the Labour Party for being “divisive”.
“The main lesson I take from their conference last week is that the Labour Party is not just divided, but divisive,” she will say. “Determined to pit one against another. To pursue vendettas and settle scores.
“And to embrace the politics of pointless protest that doesn’t unite people but pulls them further apart. So let’s have no more of Labour’s absurd belief that they have a monopoly on compassion.
“Let’s put an end to their sanctimonious pretence of moral superiority. Let’s make clear that they have given up the right to call themselves the party of the NHS, the party of the workers, the party of public servants.”
