Cameron: We will build a more responsible society
In a speech to the Welsh Conservative Party Conference, David Cameron stressed his desire to bring about “deep, positive and lasting change” by building a more responsibility society.
He warned we’ve seen “too many of the ugly things” that happen when people duck responsibility – and promised a Conservative Government would try to put an end to irresponsibility:
“That is our mission: to help build a responsible society where government leads by example and lives within its means. Where strong families give every child a stable, loving start. Where doctors and teachers and police officers are trusted to use their judgement. Where their vocations are valued and where everyone understands that we are all in this together that life is about ‘we’, not just ‘me’.”
David explained that economic responsibility is at the heart of our plans to improve financial regulation, reform welfare, rebalance our economy and tackle Labour’s Debt Crisis – and that professional responsibility is at the centre of our strategy to improve public services.
And he promised to introduce “family-friendly reform” to reduce the pressures that cause family breakdown:
“Families are the most important institution in our society. We have to do everything in our power to strengthen them.”
