David Cameron today found his voice and stood in front of Tory faithful in Birmingham speaking clearly, candidly and met head on spurious attacks from Labour that the Conservatives are just looking out for rich people, or as Cameron put it - "The cartoon Conservatives who don't care".
"We’ve been led by the daughter of a grocer, the son of a music hall performer by a Jew when Jews were marginalised, by a woman when women were sidelined", said the Prime Minister.
Cameron said his Party knew it was entering into Government "at a grave moment in the modern history of Britain" and spoke about Britains welfare dependency and moves to tackle it. As well as the NHS mentioning the new cancer drugs fund "that has got the latest drugs to more than 21,000 people and counting",
The Prime Minister pleaded with the British public not to let Labour win the argument that borrowing more than we already are was the solution to a debt crisis. Cameron spoke about young hard working people who need support and said "Welfare isn't working" and doesn't eliminate poverty, there is only "One route out of poverty - that's work".
Unwavering on spending cuts to the UK's bloated public sector and education reform the Prime Minister championed Free Schools and said that 2,000 new Academies had been created in just 2 and a half years since he came to power. Cameron said he wanted every child to have an great education that he had - "I'm not here to defend privilege, I'm here to spread it".
Cameron also told the nation that the deficit reduction plan WAS a plan for real and true sustained economic growth enabling faith & trust in the UK and the recovery of the private sector.
This was a fantastic speech by the Prime Minister who had been on the back foot in September allowing Miliband to try and claim a 'one nation' title whilst waging class war and lurching to the Left like never before.
"Did you hear what Ed Miliband said last week about taxes. He described a tax cut as the government writing people a cheque.
"Ed, Let me explain to you how it works. When people earn money, it’s their money. Not the government’s money: their money. Then, the government takes some of it away in tax. So, if we cut taxes, we’re not giving them money - we’re taking less of it away."
The PM's speech was littered with simple yet strong Conservative messages.
"Two million of the lowest-paid workers being taken out of income tax altogether."
"Over eighteen million households helped with a freeze in their council tax – and we’re freezing it all over again next year too."
"How can the answer be more spending and more borrowing? I honestly think Labour haven’t learned a single thing. When they were in office, their answer was always: Borrow more money.
"Now they’re out of office it’s: Borrow more money. Whatever the day, whatever the question, whatever the weather it’s: borrow more money. Borrow, borrow, borrow. Labour: the party of one notion: more borrowing."
"I sit in those European Council meetings where we talk endlessly about Greece. While on the other side of the world, China is moving so fast it’s creating a new economy the size of Greece every three months.
"I am not going to stand here as Prime Minister and allow this country to join the slide."
"We say we’ve got to insist on a disciplined, rigorous education for our children…our opponents call it: ‘elitist Tories, old-fashioned and out of touch.’
"No: a decent education is the only way to give all our children a proper start in this world.
"The reason we want to reform schools, to cut welfare dependency, to reduce government spending is not because we’re the same old Tories who want to help the rich... it’s because we’re the Tories whose ideas help everyone – the poorest the most."
"Line one, rule one of being a Conservative is that it’s not where you’ve come from that counts, it’s where you’re going."
tbg. believes Prime Minister David Cameron showed he was a true liberal one nation Tory today. It is now up to the Tory Party to give him unwavering full support because if they don't, how can the rest of country?
