British PM Theresa May promises measures aimed at reforming markets

"And secondly, to seek a good trading and security relationship with our neighbours after we have left". And, unlike previous year, when the letters behind her spelling out "Building A Country That Works For Everyone" fell off the pinboard they were attached to - like a sputtering clown vehicle - the words "Opportunity" were, quite fittingly, spelt out on a digital screen.

She will also use her speech to set out her vision for the country once the United Kingdom has left the European Union, telling delegates Britain has "everything we need to succeed". Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt tweeted.

Mrs May will be hoping her big keynote speech goes more smoothly than previous year when a coughing fit forced her to stop on several occasions and she was also interrupted by a prankster who handed her a mock P45.

If May accepts the invitation, she will have a chance to convince her peers a breakthrough in the search for a negotiated Brexit is possible and a deal can be finalized before Britain leaves the bloc at the end of March.

"Don't let anyone tell you we don't have what it takes: we have everything we need to succeed". "The question is, what does the end of austerity mean?" said Emily Andrews, who leads the Institute for Government's Performance Tracker, which assesses the performance of government.

Polling supports this. She polls closely, if slightly above the unreservedly socialist leader of the opposition, Jeremy Corbyn. But instead of the available support coalescing around a candidate, the party is splintered: on Brexit, on the domestic agenda and what they want the personality of their future leader to be.

Its chairman Lord Porter said: "Our national housing shortage is one of the most pressing issues we face and it is clear that only an increase of all types of housing, including those for affordable or social rent, will solve the housing crisis". But they don't agree on how to achieve that, and the issue remains the biggest obstacle to a deal. And is comfortable with modern Britain in all its diversity.

The Conservative Party crowd roared and cheered.

The Spanish opera singer whose song with Freddie Mercury became the featured single of the Barcelona Olympics has passed away. The star was admitted to hospital because of a gall bladder problem, Spanish media said.

It was a warm welcome for a leader whose fragile position at the helm of her party has been put under further pressure after the European Union rejected parts of her so-called Chequers plan and critics stepped up calls for her to ditch her strategy on Brexit, Britain's biggest policy shift for more than 40 years. She emphasised it initially in the context of World War I commemoration, remarking that the lesson we ought to learn from that generation is "if we come together there is not limit to what we can achieve - our future is in our hands".

Financial Times journalist Sebastian Payne posted: "Whisper it but could this Theresa May best ever speech?"

"Back them with the lowest Corporation Tax in the G20".

"He wanted to tear up our guarantee to the people of Northern Ireland".

She argues that her plan is the only way to avoid customs checks along the now invisible border between the U.K.'s Northern Ireland and European Union member Ireland - a development that would be troublesome for residents and businesses on both sides, and could undermine Northern Ireland's peace process.

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". "It delivers the referendum, it keeps faith with the British people", she said.

Mrs May told the Tory conference that after "we've secured a good Brexit deal" next year's spending review will set out plans for the future "because a decade after the financial crash, people need to know that the austerity it led to is over and that their hard work has paid off".
