  • UK's May aims to gain Conservative control after storm Boris

All eyes may be on Theresa May as she addresses the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham on Wednesday - but numerous paper's column inches are dedicated to a fellow top Tory: Boris Johnson.

At the Conservative conference in Birmingham, Theresa May said her party would set out its plans to boost spending once it has finished negotiating an agreement to leave the EU.

And, unlike a year ago, when the letters behind her spelling out "Building A Country That Works For Everyone" fell off the pinboard they were attached to - like a sputtering clown auto - the words "Opportunity" were, quite fittingly, spelt out on a digital screen.

Dancing onto the stage in Birmingham to Abba's Dancing Queen to a standing ovation, May poked fun at herself after her dance moves were mocked on a trip to Africa.

Hunting on the lands of the leader of the opposition labour party Jeremy Corbyn, Theresa May also suggested that the austerity policy put in place by the Tories took power in 2010 was nearing its end. Many Conservatives expect her to face a leadership challenge soon after Britain leaves the bloc - or even before.

See Johnson's full speech below...

She said: "Their latest plan is to hold a second referendum". But nothing has changed. Speaking at a fringe event at the Tory party conference earlier this week, O'Neill added: "It seems to be a particular honor of whoever happens to be foreign secretary to say evidently silly things". Although, added the Guardian, there is quite a lot of skepticism about whether she can deliver.

She was backed by the Leader of the Commons Andrea Leadsom - a prominent Leave campaigner in the referendum - who said it met her "red lines" for Brexit.

A country of austerity, zero hours contracts, huge student debt, ridiculous rent and house prices, awful public transport, environmental damage, and social destruction, not forgetting adding a £1trillion to the National Debt, and Bob says we should be anxious about Labour.

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

Political opponents, however, were not as enthused as Conservative supporters of May.

You won’t believe how much luxury carmaker Aston Martin is valued at
The British supercar maker is now owned by Italian and Kuwaiti shareholders, alongside other minority investors. A representative for Aston Martin declined to comment.

The Prime Minister referred to the National Health Service 14 times, compared with 11 direct mentions of Brexit.

"So today I can announce that we are scrapping that cap".

"Next time you hear someone say that the Tories don't care about the NHS, tell them about that extra funding", she said.

"Austerity is not an economic necessity".

"Britain, under my Conservative Government, is open for business". "And as long as Britain has a Conservative prime minister, we'll never see an end to austerity".

May defended her blueprint, which aims to keep Britain aligned with many European Union rules in return for remaining in the bloc's single market for goods.

I think it's an opportunity for her to say that there is an opportunity beyond Brexit because I think Brexit is not going to be settled in her own mind and in the cabinet's mind until the next round of discussions with the European Union.

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. "Trapped by the rabid ideologues of the Conservative right-wing, Mrs May has been driven to illiberal extremes on Brexit, welfare and immigration".

She also tried to return to the message she gave when she was appointed prime minister in 2016, promising to help those who feel "left behind", many of whom voted to leave the European Union in the referendum of that year.

"Brexit must not suck the oxygen out of domestic policy". And they go back to square one again.
