Theresa May sways to 'Dancing Queen' to deliver upbeat Brexit message

"Look, Boris (Johnson) always puts on a good show, but what matters to people is what we're delivering for them on the things that affect their day-to-day lives", she said on Tuesday.

EU President Donald Tusk warned Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May on Thursday that, with her Conservative Party conference finished, she must make a serious effort to negotiate a Brexit deal.

Dancing onto the stage in the city of Birmingham to Abba's Dancing Queen and a standing ovation, Mrs May poked fun at herself after her dance moves were mocked on a trip to Africa and after last year's conference when her speech was disrupted by a coughing fit, a stage intruder and a disintegrating set.

There was no mention of the ex-foreign secretary, who won thunderous applause from 1500 activists as he called on her to "chuck" the Brexit plan agreed at her country residence in July.

Johnson, who became the figurehead for the campaign to leave the European Union, has been one of her loudest critics, describing her plans to keep close ties with the bloc as "deranged" and little more than a bid to turn Britain into a vassal state. May's comments indicate she sees it as starting to spend more than the Treasury takes in each year - deficit spending - but many people will think it means the money they've lost over the past decade in terms of wages and falling living standards will suddenly return.

"But it's going to be more of the same, let's get behind Chequers".

The former foreign secretary caused anger in the corporate world earlier this year when he dismissed concerns over Brexit and reportedly said "f*** business".

When British Prime Minister Theresa May strutted up to the podium Wednesday, she was all smiles.

In response to claims that May's leadership lacks optimism and passion, the PM is expected to tell delegates in Birmingham: "I passionately believe that our best days lie ahead of us and that our future is full of promise".

On Wednesday, she was keen to show she was in charge of the Brexit talks.

Her words were aimed at easing the growing frustration of some Conservatives who openly say their party is directionless, unable to set an agenda against the divisive rows over Brexit.

Though Labour MP Angela Rayner described the dance with the hashtag cringe, Scottish National Party MP Joanna Cherry said May's dance was "an affront to my favorite song".

May warns she will never accept a deal which infringes on British sovereignty and is calling for a transitional form of common market for goods between the European Union and all of the United Kingdom.

The EU has rejected her proposed deal and demanded new ideas from Britain.

Away from politics, the Confederation of British Industry director general Carolyn Fairbairn, said: "The Prime Minister's unambiguous call to back business is welcome".

A party not for the few, not even for the many, but for everyone who is willing to work hard and do their best.

"I passionately believe that our best days lie ahead of us and that our future is full of promise", she will say when she addresses delegates at 10 a.m. United Kingdom time. She announced that the government would lift the legal cap on how much councils can borrow to build new homes.

"We will help you get on the housing ladder". If we all go off in our different directions...we risk ending up with no Brexit at all.' But was it enough to bind all the flailing, angry limbs of our political ecosystem?

"Emotional arguments that stress the issue of dignity sound attractive, but they do not facilitate agreement".

In her address to the party this week, Mrs May called for unity, and said all sides needed to compromise over Brexit, or they could put Britain's withdrawal from the European Union at risk.

He also said that if the country bottled Brexit now, the people will find it hard to forgive.
