Liz Truss to defend ‘disruption’ for ‘better future’ following tumultuous party conference

The Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham has been rather tumultuous following the sudden U-turn on scrapping the 45p top rate of tax and rumours of MPs turning against their leader. The Prime Minister is expected to use her keynote speech at the conference to unify the party and further justify her “new approach”.

Liz Truss is set to say in her speech on Wednesday that the subsequent “disruption” the UK has seen following Kwasi Kwarteng’s mini budget will be rewarded with a boost in economic growth.

The Prime Minister has consistently been justifying her strategy as a growth plan which is part of a “new Britain for a new era”.

While Truss will be standing defiant with her plan, she is expected to acknowledge that “not everyone will be in favour” of her policies but will add that “everyone will benefit from the result”.

The Prime Minister will try to persuade the British public that the Government will support them through the economic crisis the nation is facing.

“That is why in Britain we need to do things differently. Whenever there is change, there is disruption. Not everyone will be in favour.

“But everyone will benefit from the result – a growing economy and a better future.”

The majority of MPs have already left Birmingham ahead of the train strikes on Wednesday, so it is not known how many people will be present for the Prime Minister’s speech.

In an attempt to unite the party, Truss will say: “I am determined to take a new approach and break us out of this high-tax, low-growth cycle.

“We need to grow the pie so that everyone gets a bigger slice.”

Despite the shocking impact the Government’s latest economic policy had on the markets and on the Pound, Truss will note that her Government has an “iron grip” on UK finances.

The Conservative Party leader is expected to discuss her childhood and upbringing in Paisley and Leeds and how this is impacting her politics in relation to her “dedication” to boosting opportunity in the UK.

She will say: “This is a great country. But I know that we can do better and we must do better.


“We have huge talent across the country. We’re not making enough of it.

“To deliver this, we need to get Britain moving. We cannot have any more drift and delay at this vital time.”

In an attempt to tackle the ever-growing support of the Labour Party which has been shown in recent polls, the Prime Minister will say: “We are the only party with the determination to deliver.

“Together, we can unleash the full potential of our great country. That is how we will build a new Britain for the new era.”
