May seeks Brexit mandate with Conservative manifesto

19 May 2017

Net migration to Britain was 273,000 in the year to September.

Mr Salmond said he expected following the General Election Theresa May would have to face that "the days where UK Tory prime ministers could just say no to Scotland are over".

May reiterated that Britain would be leaving the European single market and the customs union and warned of tricky battles over the next two years as the country negotiates its departure from the European Union.

"No, she will say "I've won the election because I've got more seats and more votes than anyone else". "We reject the cult of selfish individualism". These policies are likely to appeal to the UK's traditional Labour supporters.

The president's first stop will be in Saudi Arabia, before continuing to Israel, Italy, Vatican City and Belgium. One thing that might help put Trump at ease is his wife Melania Trump is traveling with him for the entire trip.

Executive pay packages will be subject to annual votes by shareholders and listed companies will have to publish the ratio of executive pay to "broader United Kingdom workforce" pay in a concession to widespread public anger over high salaries for big business bosses.

May said she stood within the mainstream of Conservative party thought, rejecting suggestions she had a distinctive personal approach or wanted to be compared with Thatcher.

"We will expect students to leave the country at the end of their course unless they meet new, higher requirements that allow them to work in Britain after their studies have concluded", worldwide students will remain in the immigration numbers.

May, who became prime minister after Britain voted to leave the European Union last June, faced one of her first major challenges when she gave the go-ahead for a $24 billion plan for a Chinese-backed nuclear power plant in southwest England.

Meanwhile, the price for June futures of West Texas Intermediate ( WTI ) has grown by 0.75 percent and stood at $49.72 per barrel.

May a year ago praised free markets and free trade in a speech to party activists, but also said that she would be prepared to intervene where markets were deemed dysfunctional or where companies were exploiting the failures of the market.

She has promised fundamental - though yet to be detailed - reforms to fix problems ranging from arrogant elites and venal bosses to workers' rights, immigration and Britain's obsession with class privilege. May and her finance minister, Philip Hammond, are keen to gain some flexibility.

May committed to erasing the country's budget deficit by the middle of the next decade, allowing for greater borrowing to support the economy in the run-up to Brexit.

Under the government's existing plans, the deficit is projected to fall to 0.7 percent of gross domestic product by the 2021-22 financial year, down from 2.6 percent of GDP in the last financial year.
