POWER TO THE PEOPLE
“Since this election campaign began, I have been using these morning press conferences to make very clear the principles for which the Conservative party stands,” the Rt Hon John Major, Prime Minister and Leader of the Conservative Party, said at a press conference at Conservative Central Office, today.
I want to bring those principles together for you this morning.
We are fighting for low taxation -
We are fighting for individual freedom -
We are fighting for the secure defence of this country, for Britain's interests in Europe -
We are fighting for opportunity and choice, for good public services, which respond to what people want -
I want to lead a government that helps people build their own lives, a government that gives people a good start, and a better life.
I want to give people what is rightfully theirs:
That's what I want for this country.
That's what I'm going to fight for between now and 9 April.
And that's why we will win.”
