David Cameron has pledged to use this week’s conference to announce detailed proposals geared at addressing current economic difficulties.
“Taking a leaf out of Margaret Thatcher’s 1970s cookbook, the Tory leader said the plan would be based on “good housekeeping” and would be designed to restore confidence and stability to the UK economy.”
Speaking to a Shropshire local newspaper, Cameron claimed Labour’s focus on its own internal divisions was preventing the government from focusing on public concerns like the economy.
As the Conference itself kicks off, the Birmingham Mail reports an expected 15,000 delegates and journalists will attend this year’s Conservative Party Conference. The report concentrates on an expected £20 million bonanza for the local economy. David Cameron told the paper that whether the Conservatives returned to Birmingham for future annual conferences would depend on the success of the coming week.
