MANCHESTER: British Prime Minister David Cameron cast a national election in 2015 as a choice between his “pro-business” ruling Conservative party and what he called the anti-business opposition Labour party.
In a speech to his party’s annual conference here yesterday, Cameron placed Britain’s economic recovery at the heart of his bid for re-election.
“Let us never forget the cast-iron law of British politics,” Cameron told delegates. “It is Labour who wreck our economy and it’s we Conservatives who clear it up.”
Urging voters to give him and his party the chance to “finish the job” in fixing Britain’s economy, he warned that its debt crisis was far from over, saying it still had one of the biggest budget deficits in the world. “Our economy may be turning the corner, and of course that’s great, but we still haven’t finished paying for Labour’s debt crisis.”
