May appeals for party unity at 'toughest phase' of Brexit

Royal Festival Hall was regarded as the world's most sophisticated concert hall in 1951

A Tory MP has filed a letter of no confidence against his leader, Theresa May, in a shocking blow to her leadership minutes before her Conservative Party conference speech on Brexit.

More broadly, rather than concentrating on the divisions within her own party, May's speech was more focussed on the nation and landed a number of blows on the Labour party, the front bench of which the Prime Minister derided as the "Jeremy Corbyn party".

On the final day of her party's conference, May rallied members, trying to address their concerns that the Conservatives are becoming increasingly directionless under the weight of Brexit by calling on them to look to a brighter future.

"This is not pragmatic, it is not a compromise", Johnson said. And EU leaders have simply said the plan won't work.

"This is not democracy".

There are also plans to introduce in-country security checks to be carried out to make operations faster at passport control at the borders, a similar system of prior authorisation now operated by the US. "It's forfeiting control. Chequers is a cheat", he added, drawing huge applause from party members with a call to "chuck Chequers". "The red line is blood red", she told the BBC. The Conservatives are divided over how to proceed, caught between Brexiteers like Johnson and those who want to keep close economic with the bloc, Britain's biggest trading partner.

Her own future remains full of uncertainty.

DUP leader Arlene Foster has praised former British foreign secretary Boris Johnson's "positive" vision for Brexit and said the Good Friday Agreement should not be considered untouchable as negotiations to reach a final deal with the European Union continue.

Britain's governing party is deeply divided over the country's impending departure from the European Union, with pro- and anti-EU camps both criticising the prime minister's negotiations with the bloc. And she will experience no voice malfunctioning issues either that would make it nearly impossible to watch or listen to what she is saying.

Prime Minister Theresa May has said that Britain is introducing a migration policy that ends free movement allowing only skilled workers from various parts of the world.

But with his shock of blond hair smoothed down, Johnson was in a sober, statesmanlike mode.

Under the EU's current free movement rules, citizens from within the 28-member economic bloc have so far been able to enter the United Kingdom freely and look for work on arrival as opposed to strict visa norms that apply to non-EU workers from countries like India. For many Conservatives, whose party is dwindling in numbers and divided over Brexit, he was a tonic.

Mary Wylie, a local party official from Devon in southwest England, said Johnson's speech expressed "my Conservative philosophy".

"It was not just about Brexit - she gave a vision for the country for the future", said Rishi Fernando from London.

On criticism of him from the chancellor: 'I want to congratulate my friend Philip Hammond for predicting that I will never become prime minister - it's the first treasury forecast in a long time, I think, to have a distinct ring of truth'.
