May reveals death of goddaughter as she unveils cancer plan

British Prime Minister Theresa May will try to salvage her Brexit strategy on Wednesday when she takes the stage at the Conservative Party conference to fend off rising opposition to her plan and hang on to her shaky leadership.

Theresa May will round off the Tory conference with an attempt to raise party morale and convince activists that the Conservatives are about more than Brexit.

"I passionately believe that our best days lie ahead of us and that our future is full of promise", she will say, stressing: "Don't let anyone tell you we don't have what it takes: we have everything we need to succeed".

But he warned: 'If we cheat the electorate - and Chequers is a cheat - we will escalate the sense of mistrust.

'We must show everyone in this country that we are that party.

In response, Mrs May said the ex-foreign secretary could be relied upon to put on a "good show" but parts of his speech - which she says she did not watch - had made her "cross".


Mr Johnson said the PM's Brexit blueprint - which ties Britain to a common rulebook with the European Union for trade in goods - would be "politically humiliating for a £2 trillion economy", would lock Britain in the "tractor beam of Brussels" on regulation and would prevent it from making its own laws.

Cabinet Office minister David Lidington, who acts as Mrs May's effective deputy, told the Today programme Mr Johnson had some "well-crafted lines" but had not offered "any new answers".

Questioned again later on BBC Radio 4's Today about how she felt that her former colleague appeared to be mocking her, she replied: "What I feel is that I, and this government, and this party, are getting on with the important job. of getting a good deal for the United Kingdom when we leave the European Union".

He added: "My fellow Conservatives, this is not democracy".

In his letter to Brady, Duddridge said that he is normally a loyalist, and has never voted against the government until now.

"I think he really set the right tone, I was anxious he would be divisive and speak against the Prime Minister".


Scottish MPs, who are mostly seen as loyal to their leader Ruth Davidson, were reported to be planning to block a potential Boris Johnson bid for the leadership of the party and the country.

Barely a month has gone by when there is not speculation of a plot against her, much of it focused around Johnson, a leading Brexit campaigner and former mayor of London.

Mr. Johnson is a major figure in the party and esteemed by many Tories as a guiding light on Brexit.

The tweet said that Mr Mundell's son Oliver, a Conservative MSP, was "the sort of public speaker that makes you wish his dad had embraced his sexuality sooner".

"Although he's against the Chequers deal he was supportive of the party and he wasn't really criticising the Prime Minister", she said.

"We have a very, very strong leader in Scotland in Ruth Davidson who had a very significant contribution to make to this conference".


"It was a great speech, he was optimistic, he talked about Conservative values, and he talked about the opportunities if we do Brexit properly", Richard Tice, co-chairman of campaign group Leave means Leave, said after Johnson's speech.
