UK's May seeks to rally party as Brexit pressures mount

UK's May seeks to rally party as Brexit pressures mount

And shimmies. And were those jazz hands?

The crucial address comes one year, nearly to the day, since her catastrophic conference speech in Manchester, where she suffered a stage invasion by a comedian, a persistent cough and a collapsing backdrop. The move aimed to project ease and confidence, both of which have been in short supply for Brits as they negotiate their departure from the European Union.

Just six months before Britain leaves on March 29, negotiations with the European Union have ground to a halt and May is caught between Brexiteers like Johnson and those who want to keep close economic ties with the bloc, Britain's biggest trading partner.

Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn, she said, would "outsource our conscience to the Kremlin".

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

Under the EU's plan, the bloc would present May with the details of the final sticking points at the summit in mid-October, before signing off on the agreement a month later. May's plan doesn't go far enough in giving United Kingdom businesses access to the European Union market.

"After a decade of austerity, people need to know that their hard work has paid off", she said.

"The EU is adamant that you can't have the free movement of goods without accepting EU workers - that would break the rules of the club", NPR's Frank Langfitt explains.

May and her team face weeks of hard conversations with Brussels, especially after Hunt offended some in the bloc by comparing the EU to the old Soviet Union in asserting that the EU was trying to "punish" any member seeking to leave it.

British Prime Minister Theresa May dances up to the podium for her speech Wednesday at the Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham, U.K.

Many have moved to criticise Foster for her choice of language, given that Northern Ireland's history is one of much bloodshed.

In a speech full of optimism, the PM insisted that the UK's best days are still to come after Brexit.

The prime minister is also preparing new proposals on a plan B to keep the frontier open if and until a new trade deal could be agreed with the EU.

DUP Leader Arlene Foster has been at loggerheads with the Irish government in Dáil Éireann over their approach to Brexit.

This particular problem is politically thorny for Theresa May. "At the same time we are training up British people for jobs of the future", said May, cited by BBC.

'We have a guarantee for the people of Northern Ireland and we are upholding that. They are not acting in the national interest, but their own political interest.

She also took some subtle shots at Mr. Johnson, poking fun at a recent profane comment he made about business leaders by saying she also had a four-letter word for business - "back", as in "back business". It delivers on the referendum.

The announcement received a mixed response from businesses with a spokesman for the British Chambers of Commerce saying companies needed to recruit from a pool of people with a wide range of skills. "It is in the national interest", she told the conference Wednesday.

"There will be a salary threshold for high skilled workers, I can't tell you what it is today because we haven't decided and we will be setting it out - it needs a bit more work - we will be setting it out in the white paper shortly in the autumn", Javid told a fringe event at the Conservative Party conference.
