May warned of Tory revolt unless she drops Chequers plan for Brexit

The old slogans have proved a hit with Young Conservatives

His remarks came one day ahead of the long-expected speech of the Prime Minister at the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham, Xinhua news agency reported. But as she emerged to the strains of her favourite song, Abba's Dancing Queen, she looked like she was having the time of her life.

It was a warm welcome for a leader whose fragile position was put under further pressure after the European Union rejected parts of her so-called Chequers plan and critics stepped up calls for her to rethink her strategy for Brexit.

No longer calling it "the Chequers deal" after badges bearing the slogan "chuck Chequers" have sold a job lot at the party conference, the new "free trade deal" she said, is the only way of securing a decent future. As she put it: "We need to come together now".

At the conference, May called Brexit a "moment of opportunity" but was forced to urge supporters to get behind her as she heads into what would be the "toughest phase" of negotiations. "But if we stick together and hold our nerve I know we can get a deal that delivers for Britain".

May spoke highly of previous Labour leaders, saying, 'At least they had some basic qualities everybody could respect...they were proud of Britain...' unlike, she insisted, the current Labour Party leader. The same message was applied to several themes, which she touched upon - standing up against "Corbyn's party", defending Great Britain's national interests at home and overseas, and the country's economic recovery and prosperous future.

She said current EU proposals would effectively leave NI in the Custom's Union, unlike other parts of the UK.

Attacking Jeremy Corbyn for playing politics rather than considering what is best for the country, Mrs May said: 'We have a Labour Party that, if they were in government, would accept any deal the European Union chose to offer, regardless of how bad it is for the UK.

But she did her best to appear carefree as she sashayed on to the stage to the Abba hit Dancing Queen - a reference to the much-shared video of her dancing on a trip to Africa - and joked about the coughing fit and collapsing stage backdrop which marred her calamitous conference speech in Manchester a year ago.

May used a punchy speech to lay down a challenge to her detractors, a day after Johnson trashed her Brexit plan and challenged her authority with a crowd-pleasing speech of his own.

Wednesday's speech was considerably smoother.

Bottom-placed Leganes stun Barcelona in La Liga
The Blaugrana may now be top of La Liga on goal difference, but they have dropped seven of the last nine points available. In the last five matches between the two sides, Barcelona leads the series 4-1-0.

Pro-exit legislator James Duddridge on Wednesday called the negotiations "an absolute disaster" and said he had added his name to a list of Conservative lawmakers demanding a confidence vote in the prime minister.

Theresa May today danced onto the stage to deliver her make or break speech in a bid to unite Britain and her bitterly divided party.

He said he would be meeting with local party members to discuss their views on the party conference, Chequers and Brexit. And that means two things.

If the increase doesn't match rising demand for services such as social care, and these services are asked to make further efficiencies in real terms, "we're likely to see the pressure points we're already picking up on worsen", Andrews said.

To applause from activists, she said: "Sound finances are essential, but they are not the limit of our ambition".

She's got the fortitude, she's also got a little bit of humour.

"So this is our proposal".

Stanley, an author and former politician, supported the vote to Remain, but said that he doesn't want another referendum because the people have spoken, but he also displayed a complete lack of knowledge on the Irish border issue.

"This is our proposal: taking back control of our borders, laws and money".
