And she will attempt to win over "blue collar" Tories with a fuel duty freeze, saying she will carry the policy into its ninth year as it is vital for "hard-working families" - not just for their pockets, but for their quality of life.

The Manchester conference was seen as an opportunity for the embattled PM to make a fresh start, reassert her political authority and provide a vision for Brexit Britain.

She said she had been too busy to watch the speech on TV but added: 'There are one or two things Boris said that I'm cross about. Northern Ireland has had no functioning government for almost two years, preventing the Assembly from sitting. But we had the people's vote.

First, she was presented with a spoof P45 by a comedian sitting in the front row. And then letters started to fall off the set behind her.

"We need a strong leader and we haven't got that at the moment", Duddridge said.

Stars get defenseman Carrick from Toronto for draft pick
Toronto better get ready to party like it's 1967, at least if the EA Sports NHL 19 simulation of the 2018-19 season is correct. The Dallas Stars have acquired defenseman Connor Carrick from the Toronto Maple Leafs for a conditional draft pick next year.


On Wednesday, May was keen to show she was in charge of the Brexit talks.

"Of course, the composition of the Assembly has changed and the Petition of Concern is no longer available because we don't have the 30 members, because the Assembly has shrunk from 108 members to 90 members, and therefore I think we need to allow the Assembly to have its space to debate this". It will be to the great detriment of her country if she fails to find the courage to seize it.

"She's got the fortitude, she's also got a little bit of humour. The prime minister seems incapable of doing this".

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.

Condemning it as a "constitutional outrage, he had adoring supporters cheering wildly when he said: "Now is the time to chuck Chequers".

May's speech was a direct riposte to Johnson, who told a rapturous audience on Tuesday (Wednesday NZT) that May's proposal for close post-Brexit economic ties with the European Union was an "outrage" that would leave Britain unable to strike new trade deals around the world.

Her spokesman declined to comment on Duddridge's move.

Some members of her own cabinet were sending out an SOS, openly discussing how soon May could be replaced.

Millions were "appalled at what Jeremy Corbyn has done to Labour", she said.

European Union citizens will no longer be given priority to live and work in Britain, in a radical overhaul of immigration policy after Brexit which Theresa May said "ends freedom of movement once and for all". They want a clean break. "It is in the national interest". Delivers on the issues they care about.

His party's policies would cost the country £1 trillion ($1.8 trillion), send businesses fleeing Britain and inevitably require tax hikes, May said. A party that believes in business but is not afraid to hold businesses to account.

May, who landed the top job by an "odd chance" to borrow the Economist's less than charitable phrase (even though she personally voted Remain) sadly is neither extraordinary nor is she transformative.

Boris Johnson calls on Tories to trust their conservative instincts
But he warned: 'If we cheat the electorate - and Chequers is a cheat - we will escalate the sense of mistrust. A Lancaster House-style Brexit would be a "win-win" for both Britain and the EU, Mr Johnson said.


She will borrow the Labour leader's "For the many, not the few" slogan as she declares that Conservatives are "a party not for the few, not even for the many, but for everyone who is willing to work hard and do their best".
