David Cameron tells Conservatives: Britain can rise again

Help

David Cameron has vowed "to get behind people who want to get on in life" to ensure Britain can "rise" again.

In a keynote speech to the Conservative Party conference, the prime minister admitted the economic recovery was taking longer than expected.

But he said Labour offered no credible alternative and the country could only weather the storm under his leadership.

He vowed to build an "aspiration nation" driven by individual ambition - the "doers, the risk-takers".
