Away from politics, the Confederation of British Industry director general Carolyn Fairbairn, said: "The Prime Minister's unambiguous call to back business is welcome". It keeps faith with the British people.
On Wednesday, she was keen to show she was in charge of the Brexit talks.
"When we've secured a good Brexit deal for Britain, at the Spending Review next year we will set out our approach for the future", she said.
She said: "Our proposal is for a free trade deal that provides for frictionless trade in goods".
"The country wants, seemingly, something different", O'Neill said.
But she acknowledged that, a decade after the 2008 crash, the after-effects were still being felt by many households.
In a message to voters tired of belt-tightening, the PM said: "Because you made sacrifices, there are better days ahead". That would break the rules of the club.
She is reportedly drawing up a new plan on the Irish border backstop to try to win European Union leaders over. More importantly, those with little economic security, amongst which are young people, who have just entered the labour market, will experience the consequences of an economic contraction the most.
INSKEEP:.Because we talk to you periodically?
"Don't let anyone tell you we don't have what it takes: we have everything we need to succeed".
"All it does is artificially boost the ability of companies to go on a borrowing spree to buy back their own shares and... reporting never-ending rising profits at the same time of never-rising wages is feeding the core of why many normal human beings are pretty cheesed off with life".
Montgomeryshire MP, Glyn Davies, said: "I think I am Mrs May's greatest fan at the moment".
LANGFITT: Yeah. That comes up here as well.
She also cautioned that there would be "clear trade-offs to be made" to balance additional spending on services, either in the form of restricting services or tax rises to pay for them. I found only one person who had shifted their opinion. The problem for the rest of us is she may not actually be serious at all about doing what it takes to end the savage destruction of the age of austerity.
Prime Minister Theresa May will urge her fractured Conservative Party to unite behind "decent, moderate and patriotic" policies, a day after her rival Boris Johnson challenged her authority with a crowd-pleasing speech of his own.
May defended her blueprint, which aims to keep Britain aligned with many European Union rules in return for remaining in the bloc's single market for goods.
"I'm surprised I'm going to say it, but what I caught of the prime minister's closing speech, she positively surprised me", he told CNBC's "Squawk Box Europe" on Thursday.
A party not for the few, not even for the many, but for everyone who is willing to work hard and do their best.
When this kind of fun, optimism and partisan joy is on offer next to the dour reality of Mrs May and Brexit, the faithful will have fun. It's been a millstone around the neck of Conservatives.
Asked if that meant Labour was no longer committed to enacting Brexit, Mr Corbyn added: "Our party is determined to protect people's jobs and living standards and ensure that trade relationship with the EU". And they were very - they seemed pretty united.
"This is why some people still feel that our economy isn't working for them". We need a strong leader, someone who believes in Brexit and someone to deliver what the electorate voted for.
The fear of triggering an election - one that the Conservative Party could easily lose - is keeping some of the voices in the party in check. Criticism from the left, such as Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, is much to be expected - but May has also suffered sharp rebukes from fellow conservatives. And that's something they absolutely don't want to see.
