INSKEEP: It is really interesting that Conservative Party leaders, including the likes of May, have said all along they're not total fans of this Brexit thing but they want to respect the will of the people.
James Duddridge, MP for Rochford and Southend East, caused quite a stir this week when he submitted a letter saying Theresa May is "incapable" of delivering Brexit, and should be replaced as PM, just an hour before her speech at the Conservative Party Conference.
May's unexpectedly disarming conference speech followed, exhorting the party to come together, or Brexit is at risk.
Taking a swipe at hardline eurosceptic Mr Johnson, Mrs May said she was making decisions on Brexit in the "national interest" - a nod to her argument that her former foreign secretary's alternative Brexit proposals would tear the United Kingdom apart by placing Northern Ireland under European Union customs rules and thereby detaching it from the rest of Britain.
Addressing the final day of this year's Conservative conference in Birmingham, May said Britain was entering the "toughest phase" of divorce negotiations with the EU.
The Prime Minister returned the favour by namechecking her opponent seven times.
"And there's another reason why we need to come together".
With just under six months until Britain leaves the European Union on March 29, the speech Wednesday was an attempt by May to solve her conundrum.
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.
Even before Theresa May danced her self-deprecating way on to the stage in Birmingham this week, most of her party were resigned to the fact that however little they may love her, there is little to be gained from chucking her aside before Brexit next March.
"As a government we are preparing for any eventuality but I think it would be sub-optimal", he said at a fringe event on Tuesday evening.
According to The Guardian, closing the gathering of party faithful, which has been marked by divisions over Brexit, the prime minister claimed today's Labour party had abandoned the principles of Gaitskell, Callaghan and Attlee, calling the recent antisemitism row a "national tragedy".
Britain's governing party is deeply divided over the country's impending departure from the European Union, with pro- and anti-EU camps both criticizing the prime minister's negotiations with the bloc.
She insisted that, despite criticism of her approach by many Tory MPs, only her blueprint would protect the economy while keeping an open border in Ireland.
"If we all go off in different directions in pursuit of our own vision of the ideal Brexit, we risk ending up with no Brexit at all", she said in a clear nod to eurosceptic legislators who have published their alternative plan for leaving the EU. It mostly was focusing on a domestic agenda - jobs, the competence of the Conservative Party, which previously, it's definitely been known for, as well as just even the diversity of her own Cabinet. "Don't let anyone tell you we don't have what it takes", she said.
Mrs May said: "There is a government cap on how much they can borrow against their Housing Revenue Account assets to fund new developments".
"It is no surprise that we have had a range of different views expressed this week", she said.
Meanwhile Nigel Dodds, the deputy leader of the DUP which props up the Government, in the Commons issued a fresh warning that they would not accept any deal which imposes a border checks between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK.
There was also the promise that, should Brexit go well, as in, May's way, public sector workers who've had their pay frozen would see that thaw, because 'after a decade of austerity people need to know their hard work has paid off'.
Mrs May is expected to tell delegates she "passionately believes" Britain's best days lie ahead after Brexit.
