David Cameron has once again set out a magnificent vision for a Conservative programme to make Britain greater. I am delighted our poverty-fighting social justice ideas are back at the forefront of Conservatism. I may have entered politics over the Lisbon Treaty, but the journey taught me the calamitous extent of the welfare state’s failures under Labour. That’s why I helped the Centre for Social Justice before the election: we must succeed to a far greater extent in our fight against […]

The Conservative Cabinet will meet for the first time today. The Prime Minister will tell the new Cabinet that ‘this is a Government for working people’. David Cameron is putting working people front and centre of the new Government’s mission. The Prime Minister will announce new legislation that will be introduced within weeks to reform welfare, offer more apprenticeships, create two million jobs and help with childcare costs. This is a ‘One Nation’ Government that will act in the interests of […]
Via Share The Facts: David Cameron has explained in an email: On Thursday, your friends and your family face a stark choice. Vote Conservative and they can have a strong economy and a stable government – and I will keep working through our long-term economic plan as Prime Minister. But a vote for anyone else would lead to chaos. Ed Miliband, propped up by the SNP, would wreck our economy with more borrowing, more debt and more taxes. Please vote […]
Via Share the Facts, David Cameron explains that all our dreams hinge on a strong economy, that we cannot give a Labour a second chance with the security and stability of people’s lives and that Labour hurt the many in the crisis, not the few: David Cameron: “We’re the only people that can stop Ed Miliband and the SNP wrecking our economy and taking us back to square one”. Please vote Conservative on May 7.
On 18 March, Sun Nation published a 12-minute video, A Day in the Life of David Cameron: David Cameron has put Britain in his shoes by wearing a spy camera for #SunNation’s world exclusive ‘A Day in the Life’ video. In a first for a Western leader, the PM wore the tiny device on the walk from his limo to his 10 Downing Street study so voters can see what it feels like to be the nation’s most powerful man. The fascinating […]
Via sharethefacts.conservatives.com, “the choice at the next election in 80 seconds”: The election in May is the most important in a generation, and the choice couldn’t be clearer. It’s between the competence of the Conservatives, with a long-term economic plan that is securing a better future for Britain – or the chaos of a weak Labour leader propped up by who-knows-what minor party.

Via Share The Facts: While Labour and the Lib Dems have confirmed they will raise taxes, we’re committed to cutting income tax and rewarding hard work. Income tax cuts are a key part of our long-term economic plan – to help taxpayers keep more of their hard-earned money and be more financially secure. In this Parliament, we’ve halved the deficit as a percentage of GDP and cut taxes at the same time – proving that tax cuts and a stronger […]
Yesterday the Prime Minister gave a statement to the House on the EU Council, Security and Middle East. I asked the following question; Steve Baker (Wycombe) (Con): I was appalled to learn that the British terrorist interviewed on “Newsnight” came from Wycombe. Does my right hon. Friend agree that this man has disgracefully betrayed the community that I represent? Given what was said, can he reassure me that if that man presents in the UK, he will face the full force of the law? […]
Via Number 10, Supporting business: David Cameron announces new plans: In a speech to the Federation of Small Businesses, the Prime Minister will tell the audience that the government has exceeded its target to identify 3,000 regulations to be amended or scrapped. This is the first government in modern history to reduce overall domestic regulation for business while in office. 800 regulations have already been abolished or simplified – with tens of thousands of pages of red tape still to face the […]
After the success of the Co-operatives in Education debate that I called in Parliament, I pressed the Government on its 2012 pledge to bring in a Co-op Bill: Steve Baker: In January 2012, my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister made a wonderful speech about how to reconstruct an inclusive, just and popular capitalism. He called for a new co-operatives Bill, but that has not yet appeared. I cannot imagine that the Liberal Democrats are opposing it, but I cannot […]
