LONDON – Prime Minister David Cameron says Britain is on the road to financial recovery, and his Conservative Party will unleash economic energy to make it "a land of opportunity for all."
In a speech Wednesday to the party's annual conference, Cameron was striking an upbeat tone after years of recession and government austerity.
According to extracts released in advance, Cameron will say that "profit, wealth creation, tax cuts, enterprise are not dirty, elitist words. They're not the problem, they really are the solution."
The speech is the climax of the political conference season, which has seen all Britain's main parties rally the faithful and appeal to voters.
The opposition Labour Party has painted Cameron's Conservatives as a party of the rich, and promised to help Britons suffering a "cost-of-living crisis."
