What Her Conservative Conference Speech Revealed NewsPipa

When Liz Truss addressed the party convention for the first time as prime minister, the stakes couldn’t be higher. Against a backdrop of economic turmoil, open intraparty struggles, and polls that show she’s headed for a crushing defeat in her election, Truss is determined to weather the storm. I did,” he claimed.

As might be expected given the circumstances, the speech was short at just 25 minutes. Critics expected her to say little to sway markets or sway audiences. And, in fact, she thought little of the mess her own small budget had caused. Instead, she doubled down, emphasizing that growth was her number one priority and the only way forward.

She linked economic growth with people’s daily struggles and started talking specifically about “leveling up”. This is probably a move designed to recall Boris Johnson’s election-winning formula.

grow, grow, grow

Referring to her childhood growing up in Paisley and Leeds, Truss introduced her plans to rebuild Britain through reform and deregulation. We weren’t growing as strongly as we did,” she said, noting that lower growth means lower wages, that lagging regions are lagging further, and that the UK is lagging behind other countries. emphasized.

As such, she positioned growth as the best and only strategy at the individual, national and international levels. She was adamant in her support for the “dynamic” Prime Minister Kwasi Kwarten, whom she said was “perfectly aligned”.

Chancellor-Chancellor relations must really work. Truss would have been keen to highlight their agreement, especially since some disagreements had been alluded to in his earlier interviews. She would also have wanted to avoid providing fault lines for rebels and adversaries to scrape away. Perhaps she thinks she has a difficult relationship with former Prime Minister Theresa May and her own prime minister, Philip Hammond.

Truss has repeatedly voiced her opposition to what she calls the Anti-Growth Coalition – she has disrupted trade unions, the Liberal Democrats, the Scottish National Party, armed unions, think tanks, Brexit deniers, Extinction Rebellion and speeches. Named Greenpeace climate activists. Instead, she focused on both Brexit and leveling up as a way to spur growth.

The details are neglected, but she has three plans. Tax cuts, national debt relief, and economic reforms through deregulation and “reduction of red tape.” She mentioned new investment zones across the country, explicitly naming all four countries. “This is Britain at its best,” she said. “We stand up to the separatists who want to tear our precious union apart.”

Of course, this is to be expected at a Tory conference. After all, it is the Conservative Party and the Unionist Party. And she would have been looking forward to the Supreme Court hearings on the Scottish government’s proposal for an independence referendum.

The Truss pledged to deliver on its Brexit promises, saying that by the end of 2022, “all EU bureaucracy will be left to history.” Every day, she ponders how to keep the country moving, building homes, connecting to fast broadband and reliable cell phone coverage, and securing childcare.

Conservative politicians often talk about “regulatory beacons” and eliminating bureaucracy. But I would argue that we rarely see actual flames.

Growth as a solution

Truss says her health secretary, Therese Coffey, accomplishes everything from giving people access to timely GP appointments, faster ambulances, and improved emergency services in hospitals, to treatment. From ‘busting the COVID backlog’ of those waiting to bolster social care, they’ve made big claims.

The NHS is often a difficult area for Conservatives. Polls generally show Labour’s dominance in this area, with the Tory party criticized for failing to cut spending and invest in the health care system. At the same time, the Conservative Party desperately wants to be seen as pro-NHS because she knows how much her citizens value her NHS.

She has consistently said that economic growth will bring these improvements to the services we need, not higher taxes and the government spending that comes with it. She is certainly keen to be consistent in this and to show a clear distinction with Labor so that the Conservatives are once again seen as pro-business. , as attendees at a recent conference have shown, this is harder than you might imagine as it strengthens its ties to the business.

Truss emphasized that growth is also necessary from a national security perspective. She has previously pledged to increase defense spending to her 3% of her GDP by 2030, and she has repeated it.

She also reiterated Britain’s support for Ukraine in strong language against Putin. “No matter how long it takes, we will stand with our Ukrainian friends,” she said. “Ukraine can win, Ukraine must win, Ukraine will win”

He lamented the complacency of Western countries that depend on authoritarian regimes for cheap energy and promised to strengthen energy security, citing increasing North Sea gas fields and renewable energy. She also reiterated her commitment to net zero and tackling climate change.

Truss will likely be aware that her government has taken a hit with this recently. She will reportedly attend COP27, the UN climate change conference in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt. I advised King Charles not to.

Speakers would have been keen to ensure environmental concerns were included, but for the Conservatives this could be a difficult line. Vote Blue Go Green may have been a slogan before, but the party has struggled to balance environmental concerns with its general approach to tax cuts.

Finally, the Truss promised to strengthen its borders and expand the Rwandan scheme. She gave a nod to Home Secretary Suela Braverman, who promised to work “to ensure that European judges cannot overthrow us.” A leader often needs an adversary for a speech. The choice of not only the judges here, but the “Judges of Europe” would have worked well for the loyal party.

election strategy?

As she began and ended her speech, she addressed the audience as a friend. And she said, referring specifically to elected Conservative mayors in the West Midlands and others across the country, “This is what modern conservatism looks like: forward-thinking, enterprising and successful.” said.

Addressing the British people directly on many occasions, she said, “You are the one who knows best how to spend your money and how to live your life.” She emphasized her belief in freedom, fair play, and possibility. “I stand here as the country’s first prime minister to go to comprehensive school,” she insisted. In this regard, she has already been called out, with commentators pointing out that both Gordon Brown and Teresa May attended similar schools.

Truss denounced protesters and strikers, referring to white van drivers, hairdressers and accountants, saying “I’m on your side”. Seeing is not another amazing way to set the enemy up to attack. I knew that I had left early because of this.

She positioned herself as the only person who could arrive at the flotsam of Downing Street and fix it. “We do a lot to protect people,” he said.

Her leadership campaign speech and her first Prime Minister’s speech had a lot about immediate action. So she framed a mini-budget as the quick action needed.

She said it needs to invest in roads, rail, energy and broadband to boost growth. “If you want the economy to run, you have no choice,” she said. The keywords for her conference materials are “movement” and “delivery.”

Truss clearly wants to portray himself as active and responsible. She attended this conference, calmed and roused her army, reassured her country, and her success will be determined by time and next week’s proceedings.
