Tories Target The Youth Vote - But Is It Too Little, Too Late?

  Tories Target The Youth Vote - But Is It Too Little, Too Late? The Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond, delivered his conference speech on Monday to yells and applause from the audience.  Defending the Free market as that which 'will underpin a free society', with special emphasis on the next generation. It seems the Conservatives are gearing up to claim their share of the youth vote. They are listening it seems, but will it work? Mr Hammond's scathing remarks on Corbyn's Labour during his speech mirror the old style negative scaremongering that has bored and turned young people away from politics for years.

May pledges 'calm leadership' after MPs' plot

  May pledges 'calm leadership' after MPs' plot Theresa May has responded to claims of a plot involving Tory MPs to oust her from Number 10, saying she is providing "calm leadership" with the "full support" of her cabinet.Speaking in her Maidenhead constituency, the Prime Minister told reporters she had "had a cold all week".

In an emotional appeal for Mr Corbyn to stand down, Ms Beckett told the Today programme: 'When you assume leadership the interests of those you lead come before your own and in those interests he has to stand aside'. Explaining how hard it was to call for her leader to quit , she added

Jess Phillips suggests she could quit Labour party if Jeremy Corbyn remains leader. Amber Rudd claims 'thuggish' Jeremy Corbyn has encouraged hard left violence. WATCH Grant Shapps: ‘Of course’ Theresa May cannot lead Tories into next election.

Jeremy Corbyn has accused Theresa May of leading a "government in chaos" and called on the prime minister to stand down.

In the first Prime Minister's Questions since Parliament returned from party conference season, the Labour leader said the government was "more interested in fighting among themselves" than tackling the biggest issues facing the country, including Brexit, and added: "If if the PM can't lead, she should leave."

Corbyn said: "Everywhere you look it's a government in chaos.

"On the most important issues, it's a shambles. Brexit negotiations, made no progress, Bombardier and other workers facing redundancy, most workers worse off, young people pushed into record levels of debt... our NHS at breaking point."

He added: "This government is more interested in fighting among themselves than solving these problems. Isn't it the case that if the PM can't lead, she should leave?"

U.K. Plans for No-Deal Customs Regime as Brexit Talks Resume

  U.K. Plans for No-Deal Customs Regime as Brexit Talks Resume The U.K. set out contingency plans for leaving the European Union without a new Brexit deal on customs, as Prime Minister Theresa May warned that Britain must prepare for the worst. A planned Customs Bill will create a new “standalone” customs regime for the U.K., and ensure value-added tax and excise laws continue to function if the country crashes out of the bloc in 2019 without an agreement. The proposals come in a new so-called White Paper on customs after Brexit, published alongside a similar document on trade.

The Labour leader kicked off PMQs with an attack on the government's policy on Universal Credit.

Corbyn referenced the Citizens Advice Bureau, which recently described the policy as a "disaster waiting to happen," and quoted a member of the public who wrote to him saying that the policy had left her family "with no money to survive" during the summer.

He added: "The PM talks about helping the poorest but the reality is a very, very different story.

"Absurdly the Universal Credit helpline costs claimants 55p per minute for the privilege of trying to get someone to help them claim what they believe they're entitled to.

"Will the PM intervene today, show some humanity and at least make the helpline free?"

May insisted that the Universal Credit system was being "improved" and defended the Conservative government's record of lifting people out of poverty, before attacking the handling of welfare under past Labour governments.

"Let's just think about the Labour party's record on welfare," the prime minister told the Commons.

"Under the Labour Party, 1.4m people spent most of the last decade trapped on out of work benefits.

"The number of households where no member had ever worked nearly doubled. The welfare bill went up by 60% in real terms, which cost every household an extra £3,000 a year. That's not the way to run a system, that's the way to have a system that is failing ordinary working people."
