Brexit: EU's Tusk tells May to 'get down to business'

The old slogans have proved a hit with Young Conservatives

The Tory party conference has been dominated by Brexit, with former foreign secretary Boris Johnson launching a fresh attack against the Prime Ministers so-called Chequers plan for post-Brexit trade with the European Union, named after the British PMs country residence where it was agreed in July.

"So why we can think that Ireland is going to be such a disaster, I don't know". 'There are plenty of prominent people in British politics...who want to stop Brexit in its tracks...they call it a people's vote.

Shrewsbury and Atcham MP Daniel Kawczynski said he wanted to support the Prime minister but he and local party members would need to see the final Brexit documents first.

May urged her fractious Conservative Party to unite behind "decent, moderate and patriotic" policies, a day after her rival Boris Johnson trashed her Brexit plan and challenged her authority with a crowd-pleasing speech of his own.

"I passionately believe that our best days lie ahead of us and that our future is full of promise", she will say when she addresses delegates at 10 a.m. United Kingdom time.

"Even if we do not all agree on every part of this proposal", May added, "we need to come together".

Despite the attempt to boost morale within the party, this year's conference has been notable for the stark divide that has been apparent within the Conservatives.

"Far better to take up business' open offer to work together".

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.

Conservative lawmaker Phillip Lee, who resigned from the justice ministry in June over the government's handling of Brexit, told a packed pro-EU event on the sidelines of the party's annual conference that the ministers had told him so in private conversations.

"We are entering the most hard phase of the negotiations", underlined the leader of the uk.

"All it does is artificially boost the ability of companies to go on a borrowing spree to buy back their own shares and... reporting never-ending rising profits at the same time of never-rising wages is feeding the core of why many normal human beings are pretty cheesed off with life".

In response to claims that May's leadership lacks optimism and passion, the PM is expected to tell delegates in Birmingham: "I passionately believe that our best days lie ahead of us and that our future is full of promise".

Mrs May said: "There is a government cap on how much they can borrow against their Housing Revenue Account assets to fund new developments".

"Because for millions of people, their auto is not a luxury".

He added: "If we get it wrong - if we bottle Brexit now - believe me, the people of this country will find it hard to forgive".

In a "no-deal" world the most likely impact would be a drastic fall in consumer and business confidence in the months following Brexit.

With the clock ticking before a March deadline for Britain to leave the European Union, a hard-core of Conservative Party activists clamour for Mr Johnson to oust Mrs May and deliver his vision from No 10 Downing St.

With no agreement with the bloc over the divorce or a future relationship, the last day of the conference marks the beginning of what some officials predict will be a frenzied couple of weeks of diplomacy between London and Brussels as the two sides try to secure a deal to end more than 40 years of partnership.

"It is no surprise that we have had a range of different views expressed this week", she said.
