”Two years ago I stood on this stage and I gave a speech, a short speech, about why I wanted to lead our Party. Today I want to make a speech about why I want to lead our Country” said David Cameron in his closing speech at the 2007 Conservative Party Conference.
Mr Cameron underlined the differences between Labour and the Conservatives, and laid forth an ambitious agenda for a Conservative leadership in Britain. He criticized the outdated "old politics" of Labour and stressed that only the modern approach of the Conservatives could solve the challenges Britain is and will be facing in the new world.
In advance of the party conference there had been a lot of speculation on whether Labour’s Prime Minister Gordon Brown would call a new election, and David Cameron had a clear challenge to the Prime Minister : “Let the people pass judgement on 10 years of broken promises, let people decide who's really making the arguments about the future of our country. Let people decide who can make the changes that we really need in our country. Call that election. We will fight – Britain will win.”
