Jeremy Corbyn refuses to say Brexit will definitely happen

  • Jeremy Wright speaks at the Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham

"Look, Boris (Johnson) always puts on a good show, but what matters to people is what we're delivering for them on the things that affect their day-to-day lives", she said on Tuesday.

British Prime Minister Theresa May on Wednesday turned to pop group ABBA's hit "Dancing Queen" to deliver an upbeat Brexit message at the close of the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham.

Cameron, who campaigned for Britain to remain in the European Union, resigned the day after the Brexit vote, but O'Neill stayed on as May took the reins, only to step down in September 2016 amid rumored tensions with the prime minister over her approach to China.

The previous week, Boris Johnson had used his column in the Daily Telegraph to call May's Chequers proposal a "collapse of will by the British establishment, to deliver on the mandate of the people".

"Rigorous debate between political opponents is becoming more like a confrontation between enemies", she said.

She says her plan is the only way to protect jobs and trade while also avoiding physical checks on the land border between British Northern Ireland and European Union member Ireland.

"Voting against a Chequers-based deal would be quite a high bar, I am not going to deny that. Later: Even if we do not all agree on every part of this proposal, we need to come together".

A year ago everything that could go wrong did go wrong, with May struggling to make her speech because of a throat infection, and suffering of the platform backdrop falling apart.

He added: "I didn't expect there would be such a head of steam behind calls for a second referendum or a people's vote".

May appeared intent on stealing Johnson's spotlight, scheduling a flurry of morning interviews at which she unveiled a new immigration policy a day ahead of schedule.

She promised to "make markets work in the interests of ordinary people again", citing Government initiatives to toughen corporate governance rules, provide protection for gig economy workers and cap energy prices. "We are not just a party to clean up a mess, we are the party to steer a course to a better future".




But she did her best to appear relaxed as she sashayed on to the stage to Abba hit Dancing Queen and joked about the coughing fit and collapsing stage backdrop which marred her calamitous conference speech in Manchester previous year.

"I have not met a single MP who thinks she will lead us into another election after the last disastrous snap election".

But her bid to revitalize her domestic agenda and steal the initiative from the main opposition Labour Party has been overshadowed by the party splits over Brexit.

She said: "We have had disagreements in this Party about Britain's membership of the European Union for a long time".

The region, which is part of the United Kingdom, has an open land border with the Republic of Ireland as part of the 20-year-old Good Friday Agreement that ended decades of sectarian violence.

"We need a strong leader and we haven't got that at the moment", Duddridge told the BBC.

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.

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

He also said that if the country bottles Brexit now, the people will find it hard to forgive.
