tv   British Prime Minister Delivers Party Conference Speech  CSPAN  October 7, 2021 12:12am-1:01am EDT

12:12 am
address at his parties conference in manchester england this is a 45 [applause]
12:13 am
good morning everybody. it's amazing to be back here in person.
12:14 am
and in fact it is the first time since the general election of 2019. [laughter] and why is it that today we are back for a conservative [inaudible] it's s because the months we've had one of the most open economies and societies. and on july 19th, we decided to open every single theater and every club in england. we knew some people would still beou anxious, so we sent top representatives to show that anyone could dine perfectly safely [inaudible]
12:15 am
[cheering] let's hear it, living proof. [applause] living proof thatg you all represent the most -- how have we managed, the answer, the rollout of the vaccine. the magic potion invented at oxford university, distributing to vaccination centers everywhere. the army in action in glasco where they set up a huge vaccination center. they vaccinated so rapidly that we wereac able to do those crucl groups one before, the oldest
12:16 am
and most vulnerable, faster than any other major economy in the world. and though the disease has sadly not gone away --e [applause] the impact on death rates has been astonishing. and i urge you all, because every day the vaccine dependencies are getting stronger and stronger and all of you, everybody watching, you made this rollout possible, you made eachwa other safer. so you should thank each other. [applause] try a c cautious fist bump. it's okay now. we think that the public health work -- above all, unbeatable,
12:17 am
unbelievable. [applause] as a response responsible conservative government we must recognize the scale of the achievement but also of the challenges ahead. when i was lying in the hospital last year, i looked leary out my window at a hole in the ground between the icu and an older victorian section. and amid the rubble they seemed to be digging a hole for someone or something, something possibly me. [laughter] but they saved me and they pulled me out of that and i went
12:18 am
back on a visit the other day and i saw that it had been filled in with three or four stories of a new pediatric unit and there you have a medicine for how we must build back better. we have a huge hole in the public finances and we spent 407 billion pounds on covid support and the debt is over 2 trillion pounds and waiting lists were almost certainly going up before they come down. covid pushed out pieces and people did not or could not seek help and that wave is now coming back. your hip replacement, your mother's surgery, this is the priority of the british people. does anyone seriously imagine we shouldn't be raising the funding to sort this out? is that the view of responsible conservatives? i can tell you something,
12:19 am
margaret thatcher would not have it ignored a meteorite if it had just crashed through. shef would have wagged her fingr and said now it's higher interest rates and even higher taxess later. when this country was sick, our nhs, frontline workers against a new disease selflessly risking their lives and it's right that this party that's looked after them for most of its history should be the ones to rise to the challenge. forty-eight new hospitals, 50,000 more nurses, 50 million gp appointments and 14 diagnostic centers and with real change because the pandemic not only put pressure on them but it was a lightning flash elimination of a problem we
12:20 am
failed to address for decades. in 1948 this country created the national health service but kept social care local and that made sense in many ways but the generations of older people have found themselves lost in the gap. when covid broke, the 100,000 and the 30,000 occupied by people who could have been cared for at home or residential care. we know that this problem is one of the major reasons why it takes too long to get the hospital treatment that your family desperately needs and people worry that theyey will be the one in tend to suffer from the potentially catastrophic cost of dementia wiping out everything they have and preventing them from passing on anything to their families. we stand by those who share our
12:21 am
values and hard work and which treatment for cancer and alzheimer's is not or only partly. to fix these problems we are not just going to siphon billions of new taxes into the services without performance. we will use new technology so that there is a single set of electronic records between the social care, improving care and ensuring that it goes to the front line and not a needless bureaucracy. when i stood on the steps -- [applause] when i stood on the steps of downing street i promised to fix this crisis. this government that got things done and was getting the rollout
12:22 am
of dunn is going g to get social icare done and we will deal wih the biggest underlying issues of the economy and society, the problems no government has had the guts to tackle before and, i mean, the long-term structural weaknesses in the uk economy. it's thanks to the rollout we have the most open economy and fastest growth -- [applause] we have unemployment lower and i'm pleased to say after years of stagnation more than a decade, wages are going up faster than before the pandemic began and that matters because now we are embarking on
12:23 am
direction that has been long overdue in the uk economy. we are not going back to the same broken model all of it and enabled and assisted by uncontrolled immigration. the answer that's mainly a function of revival is not to reach for that immigration to keep the wages low. the answer is to control and allow people of talent to invest in f people and skills and equipment or the machinery they knew they needed to do their job. the truck stops entirely random with basic facilities and that is the direction the country is going now, towards a higher wage, high skilled, high
12:24 am
productivity andy thereby low tx economy here. that is what the people in this country need and deserve. [applause] in which everyone can take pride in their work and quality of their work and it will take time and sometimes it will be difficult but that was the change the people voted for in 2016 and to deliver that change we will get on with our job of uniting and leveling out across the uk. the greatest project any government can embark on. we have the one of the most imbalanced societies and lopsidedla economies of all the countries. there are 18 gaps within the
12:25 am
regions themselves. what are they applying, but royal jelly are they eating that the live seven years longer than the people of blackpool only 30 miles away, white is half the population, that isn't just a question of social justice but it is a waste of potential and it's holding this country back. [applause] there is no reason why the inhabitants in one part of the country should be geographically baited to be poor than others or to a move away from their loved ones potential. when thomas gray stood in that church in 1750 and wrote his
12:26 am
famous eulogy of the parting day he lamented the wasted talent of those buried around him and the glorious milton who never wrote a poem -- he knew that was an injustice. let me ask you why was he standing when he chewed his quill, correct he was [inaudible] there may be underprivileged parts of the country but it isn't among them. it was only recently determined by the daily telegraph, if you can't believe that, what can you believe -- [laughter] to be the eighth richest. it's leveled up to be the most productive in the whole of
12:27 am
europe. of course they have their problems but they are overwhelmingly by other people that live on or near, private trains, endless commutes, the anxiety will be desecrated by ugly new homes and that is why leveling up works for the whole country and it is the right and responsible policy because it helps to take the pressure off parts of the southeast and simultaneously operating opportunities to those areas that have felt left behind. and let's be clear that there is a huge philosophical difference between us and labor because they don't like leveling up. they like leveling down. [laughter] [applause]
12:28 am
they like decapitating and taxing [inaudible] [laughter] i've seen it with my own eyes they like them to run races where nobody actually wins. [laughter] i have to n tell you i don't thk that is a good preparation for life,lo let alone for the olympc games. [applause] if you insist on the economic theory behind leveling up,is its in 19th century italian figure from the attics of my memory. there's all kind of improvements you can make to people's lives he said without diminishing everyone else. i'm sure he would confirm this.
12:29 am
we call these improvements and they are the means of leveling up. the idea in a nutshell you will find a imagination, enthusiasm m everywhere in this country all of them evenly distributed but opportunity is not and it's our mission to promote opportunity with every tool o we have and it is still a fact that in this country -- [applause] that's right. it's all about opportunity but it's still a fact that in this country some kids will grow up in neighborhoods that are much safer than others and some will be sucked into gangs and at risk of stabbing and shooting and some will get themselves caught in a one-way ratchet in the criminal justice system. many others will not and that is
12:30 am
why leveling up means fighting crime and putting more police out on the beat as we are, toughening sentences, rolling out the county lines 1,100 of them gone already, giving police the power they need to fight these dealers in debt and misery. ..
12:31 am
and you know there's i don't call them legitimate protesters i say they are a confounded nuisance stocking people going about their daily life. and i am glad they're taking new powers to insulate them
12:32 am
snugly in prison where they belong. what i find most incredible of all was the decision by labor to vote against tougher sentences and over half of the entire government i tell you this, we will not rest until we have increase the successful prosecution for rape. because too many, too many cowardly men are using the laws to get away for it with violence against women. we cannot and we will not stand for it. [applause]
12:33 am
i know there are some hotels we are beyond generous and feeling our sense to control our borders. i say don't give me that sprayed this is a government that stood up to china for haven for british overseas nationals than i am proud to be part of, i am really proud to be part of the conservative government that will welcome 20000 africans people who will risk their lives to translate for us. we are doing the right and responsible thing. speaking of the great-grandfather, i know this country is a beacon of light and hope for people around the world provided they come here legally. provided we understand who they are and what they want to contribute. that is why we took back control of
12:34 am
>> . >>
12:35 am
and. >> and we can do it. there is absolutely no reason and why so many should be able to read or write or basic mathematics. and to level up.
12:36 am
[applause] we are investing in our schools. every universities are a will begin. one of the great glories of our economy. and then the best paid people in britain. they don't go to university. so to level up give them options and skills. and to make the most of those skills. and urgently to keep all the gaps. is still holding people and ngcommunities back. >> as i've been saying with this wonderful conference. can you remember what percentage had gigabit
12:37 am
broadband? >> and if you pay attention. [laughter] >> only 7 percent?ou absolutely right. what is it by the new year? actually am told 68 percent. [laughter] [applause] thanks to the super deduction. now as companies reach those hard-to-reach spaces. but for years that he is nothing but humble in the eye of the sky. but now to have broadband at a very high quality. >> and then to a lot.
12:38 am
[applause] it is not good enough but after decades of national infrastructure is way behind is a waste of human potential.
12:39 am
>> with that steering wheel bending track lights. made in m this country. towns and cities with a productive workforce so by putting in the rose and the schools and the healthcare we can enable more young people everywhere to share the dream of homeownership. and with the human race. o
12:40 am
and then but we can do it. go on google maps. do you see how the landscape is pieced together by centuriesog and then it is a testament and investment. to see how rich this country has grown. into parts of the country. and then for decades. and it seemed how is massive. [applause]
12:41 am
and then without permission. you can also see how much and that the t founding in the country. with beautiful homes and that maked sense this government is helping him people so under this government we are turning the tide we have more young people onto the property and there is no happiness.
12:42 am
>> but i certainly don't have to go very far to work. but that to suit your skills to be fast and reliable and they tell you something else in the right place about affordable price but to your productivity. and that is how we sold the national productivity with a broken housing market, plugging in the gigabits and with the infrastructure and to invest in skills, skills, skills. [applause] and that, by the way is for everyone because housing and energy is part of the monthly
12:43 am and then sorting out our energy supply and then becoming less dependent on hydrocarbons so we will save you money. and then m we will have an even more attractive to women with the pfizer vaccine and those that are coming and then to have productivity gains and then to help businesses start and grow. so let me come now to the punchline is not the government that made the nwonder drug. or the department of health, but it was the private sector that made it possible. the vaccines and the shareholders s and then you need
12:44 am
pools of liquidity. and then to ensure they had a vaccine. and the answer that we would elove to attack is then the aggregate that enables us and then to level up. [applause]e] >> . >> . >> these vaccines ensure that mutation jab job job is jobs jobs jobs.t
12:45 am
>> that is produced. >> some of our generation to go with the world. how do we look at the ambition of paris. and the government can do it alone. the other day. >> then to see them up close.
12:46 am
>> and then to straight across. and then with the office window. and then to save the planet. he does not respond to the and then with the and that is the difference between radical and optimism and hopelessly divided.
12:47 am
[laughter] then to push this way and that way. >> or the skipper of a cruise line. right way and then that the schools were safer. and then for the rollout.
12:48 am
[applause] >> with public anxiety and confusion. >> and then working the human weathervane the. [laughter] [applause] >> in with the funding that we
12:49 am
pay toward the nhs. just to disseminate those rollouts and then to do things differently and then up the european super league. [applause] and in which business can pass through the uk but with ai and
12:50 am
fiber and we will be ever more global including that trade deal that they said was a possible. and then simply not have happened if we remain in the eu. and the ideas so transparent.
12:51 am
>> and what of a compelling of an argument. [laughter] and 66000 and not to threaten the freedom of navigation.
12:52 am
trbrings us together and that the equal dignity. very few could have pulled that off with an astonishing feet by the radon forces. [applause] even fewer have the same moral priorities. and then to broker a deal such as this government did so that the vaccine has been distributed at cost. and then saving millions of lives.s. and then the things that we stand for but never forget is for the history and
12:53 am
traditions. and then with the passion and the music. [laughter] but they like it the way it merges organically lambasted inherited conglomerate of traditions. and then too understand the need for both and then we attack and deny our history and our peril and then to attack churchill is a racist and then to be at the audiences of all times. [applause] then he helped to defeat the regime after all that was
12:54 am
defined by one of the most vicious races in the world has ever seen. but as time has come by it has become clear to me that they really do want to rewrite our national story. and we really are at risk of the cancel culture. so we will defend the history and cultural inheritance. [applause] >> but is dishonest change the entry in we can and with our children's education.
12:55 am
but that the observation. >> i believe that through history this country has unique spirit of any just with the interim one —- entrepreneurs to compete in the world to produce more than 100 is worth more than $100 billion each if you pay attention the united states china and united kingdom. [applause] and those unicorns are now in
12:56 am
the way to level up we need the spirit of the nhs and entrepreneurs the spirit of the footballers. with the vast majority the people of the country. and then the majority of the people in this room. so the mental resilience. when it was going against us the spirit of our own indians incredible thing as a formidable country with a four.8 percent of the worlds population despite our best efforts. [laughter] but when we come second in the
12:57 am
paralympics as well. and then how it feels to be a trailblazer. that is i the spirit that is the same across the country everyone we find the parts in mind that is the spirit. [applause]
12:58 am
all. [applause]
12:59 am
1:00 am
afghanistan. this runs about one hour. >> i'm very happy today to welcome you to a discussion with the ambassador and our distinguished fellow most of you will know from his work on the >> and as most of you will know from the work on the middle ea
