May pledges to tackle 'giant challenges' with Tory manifesto

FAIRER funding for Worcestershire's schools has been promised if the Conservatives win the General Election - in a detailed manifesto which will hit pensioners in the pocket.

The Tories have also come under fire for their proposed changes with a tax on elderly care, which would scrap the £72,000 cap on bills.

Mrs May tore up David Cameron's 2015 "tax lock" pledge not to raise income tax or national insurance.

Sir Michael said it would become easier to reduce migration as the United Kingdom leaves the European Union and pointed to another manifesto pledge, to increase the levy on firms hiring foreign workers.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said she stood within the mainstream of British Conservative party thought on Thursday, rejecting the suggestion that she had a distinctive personal approach or wanted to be compared with Margaret Thatcher.

Paul Johnson, director of think tank the Institute for Fiscal Studies, said sharply reducing immigration would be "an additional cost on employers and the economy" because it implied losing a source of productive labor.

"There is no "Mayism".There is good solid Conservatism, which puts the interests of the country and the interests of ordinary working people at the heart of everything we do".

There will also be an increase in the amount of wealth someone can have - savings and the value of their home - from the current £23,250 to £100,000 - before they lose the right to free care.

German foreign minister says concerned about NAFTA renegotiation
The administration will need to rally lawmakers behind its negotiating position, a hard task in a polarized political environment. Nonpartisan congressional research concluded in 2015 that NAFTA had not caused an exodus of jobs, nor was it a major job creator.

Theresa May is trying to "pitch the young against the old" by planning to scrap the pension triple lock and universal winter fuel allowance, Jeremy Corbyn is warning.

Mr Corbyn will use a campaign rally speech in Birmingham on Saturday to call on the Tory leader to immediately drop the "anti-pensioner package" which formed a central part of her manifesto plan to tackle the major challenges facing the UK.

"The way we are going to pay for that is by making the rules the same for people who go into care homes as for people who get care at their home, and by means-testing the winter fuel payment, which now isn't".

"So now more than ever, Britain needs a strong and stable government to get the best Brexit deal for our country and its people".

Her collection of pre-election pledges known as a manifesto gives a glimpse of what May plans for Britain's $2.6 trillion economy as she plots tortuous Brexit divorce negotiations with the 27 other members of the European Union.

"The next five years are the most challenging that Britain has faced in my lifetime". "Brexit will define us - our place in the world, our economic security and our future prosperity".

The manifesto renews a pledge to reduce net migration to under 100,000 a year, a promise that is popular with voters. The proposal will mean the state pension will rise in line with earnings or inflation, whichever is highest, but will no longer rise by 2.5 per cent if they are both less than that.
