UK's May Promises Voters Immigration Curbs, Fairer Society

Mrs May said part of being a leader was making tough decisions and said it was necessary to find a long-term solution to social care as she defended a policy that might well upset her traditional voter base.

"Now more than ever, Britain needs strong and stable leadership to make the most of the opportunities Brexit brings for hard-working families". If the aim is to make it more hard for companies, especially SMEs, to access the skills they and the economy urgently need, then this will do the trick.

"With this plan and with a strong hand through Brexit, we will build a stronger, fairer, more prosperous Britain for all of us".

The manifesto reiterates the UK's intent to leave both the single market and customs union and pursue a deep and special partnership including a comprehensive free trade and customs agreement. Conservative manifesto plan's for Tier-2: employers costs set to doubleMr Hunt defended the plan to double the cost for businesses of the skills charge for Tier 2 visas from £1,000 to £2,000. "There is good solid Conservatism that puts the interests of the country and the interests of ordinary working people at the heart of everything we do in government".

The assertion that "our responsibility to one another is greater than the rights we hold as individuals" suggests the prime minister could be more of a Tony Blair fan than she has previously let on.

She promised that her government would be "relentless in tackling burning injustices" and would govern for "mainstream Britain".

But the prime minister, an initial opponent of Brexit who won the top job in the political turmoil that followed the June 23 referendum vote, has so far given few details on what she aims to do with her power.

Mrs May said as the United Kingdom left the European Union, it would need to harness the talents of all its people.

On the many cases of "Skype families", in which one parent lives overseas because the British spouse does not earn enough to sponsor the other, the manifesto said: "We will increase the earnings thresholds for people wishing to sponsor migrants for family visas".

"So we will work with like-minded countries to change the rules so that they are updated and better reflect the breadth of our assistance around the world".

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. Britain, she said Wednesday, will be made to pay a price if it limits immigration from the region after 2019. "The Conservatives' record is one of broken promises and failure", he said.

Mrs May said she was maintaining Mr Cameron's controversial target to reduce net immigration below 100,000 - something she failed to do in six years as Home Secretary.

While government does not have all the answers, it "can and should be a force for good", she said.
