David Cameron has given a speech which closed the Conservative party conference in Manchester.
The prime minister didn’t announce any major new policies, but set out the approach which he hopes will win his party the next election in 2015.
The theme of the speech was Land of Opportunity.
He urged people to trust the Tories to continue the economic recovery, even though Labour argues his decisions have held the UK back and punished the poor.
David Cameron used the phrase “land of opportunity” 13 times and said no-one should be held back by their background, as long as they put the effort in.
He added: ‘It makes no difference whether you live in the North or in the South, whether you’re black or you’re white, a man or a woman, the school you went to, the background you have, who your parents were.
‘What matters is the effort you put in, and if you put the effort in you’ll have the chance to make it.’
