Confident, comfortable and cheerful, truss may have clawed back support in conference closing speech

The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Confident, comfortable and cheerful, Truss may have clawed back support in conference closing speech” – below is their description.

Liz Truss has vowed to defeat the “enemies of enterprise” and lead Britain “through the tempest” as her first conference speech as Tory leader was disrupted by protesters.

The Prime Minister took aim at what she described as the “anti-growth coalition” as she accused Labour, the Lib Dems, the SNP, unions and demonstrators of holding the UK back.

She said: “The anti-growth coalition doesn’t get it, because they don’t face the same challenges as normal working people.

“These enemies of enterprise don’t know the frustration you feel to see your road blocked by protesters, or your trains off due to strikes. In fact, their friends on the hard left tend to be the ones behind the disruption.”
