Theresa May nicks Jeremy Corbyn’s campaign slogan for ‘post-Brexit promise’ speech

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

As Theresa May jigged out onto the stage at the Conservative Party conference to give her keynote speech, I had to ask myself, last year it was coughing, what's the affliction this year - until I realised she was dancing - to Abba's Dancing Queen coming over the sound system.

But she did her best to appear carefree 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 past year.

Mr Johnson made a speech calling Theresa May's Chequers Brexit plan "a cheat" and "humiliating".

Extracts of her speech, entitled "Our future is in our hands" that were released in advance show that May will seek to unite warring factions within the party - namely, those that favor a "hard" Brexit, those that never wanted to leave the economic and political bloc and those that are reconciled to leaving the European Union but want to remain closely aligned to the continent.

"And there's another reason why we need to come together".

Mrs May did warn her critics, however, that failing to unite behind her would undermine Britain in negotiations - and could even lead to the United Kingdom remaining in the European Union.

"And our message to them must be this - We get it". That's across the Conservative party, across the benches in Parliament and across the country as we all hurtle towards May's dream of Brexit.

He has said numerous times every war ends with all sides sitting down to work out a solution, so why not begin with looking for a solution, makes sense to me.

In a clear pitch for mainstream voters turned off by Mr Corbyn's left-wing economic agenda and rows over anti-Semitism, she said she wanted the "decent, moderate and patriotic" Conservatives to be "a party for the whole country".

One however has submitted a letter of no confidence in his leader.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan's post-Brexit "London is Open" campaign was also bastardised in May's speech when she declared: 'Britain under my Conservative government is open for business'.

The challenges that May is facingdid little to dampen the gusto of her speech to conservatives Wednesday.

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

May's public battle with Johnson comes only two weeks before she must return to Brussels in a bid to break the Brexit deadlock and reach a deal.

May and her team are braced for a gruelling set of discussions: with EU leaders, with her parliamentary partners in the DUP, and with the European Commission, all the while withstanding ferocious friendly fire.

"My only word of caution, because like many grassroots Conservatives I'm a strong, strong Brexiteer, so I'm hoping with the next round of talks the prime minister goes ahead with the same vehement passion she showed in the auditorium".

Appealing to voters tired of belt-tightening, she said: "Because you made sacrifices, there are better days ahead". So, it is no surprise that we have had a range of different views expressed this week.

"And secondly, to seek a good trading and security relationship with our neighbours after we have left".

May insists her ideas offer the only way to protect jobs and trade while also avoiding physical checks on Britain's land border with European Union member Ireland.

"So this is our proposal. This is not taking back control: this is forfeiting control", he said. Good for jobs, good for the Union.

In her speech, May promised to deliver the Brexit the British people had voted for and there would be no referendum or people's vote - laid into the prospect of a Labour government led by its leader Jeremy Corbyn.
