David Cameron has delivered his keynote speech to the Conservative Party conference in Manchester - the last conference before the next election.
Speaking to thousands of party members, he said a Conservative Government would "reward those who take responsibility, and care for those who can't".
The wide-ranging speech covered the key areas of policy that a Conservative Government would address, and why he wanted to lead it. Cameron concluded with his vision for what Britain could be like:
“I see a country where more children grow up with security and love because family life comes first. I see a country where you choose the most important things in life - the school your child goes to and the healthcare you get. I see a country where communities govern themselves - organising local services, independent of Whitehall, a great handing back of power to people.
I see a country with entrepreneurs everywhere, bringing their ideas to life - and life to our great towns and cities. I see a country where it’s not just about the quantity of money, but the quality of life - where we lead the world in saving our planet. I see a country where you’re not so afraid to walk home alone, where you’re safe in the knowledge that right and wrong is restored to law and order. I see a country where the poorest children go to the best schools not the worst, where birth is never a barrier."
He added that "we
will not make it if we pull in different directions, follow our own interests,
take care of only ourselves. But if we pull together, come together, work together - we will get through this together."
