Gordon Brown has set out his vision of a new settlement for new times in his speech to Labour Party Conference. In his speech, he gave the British people an unconditional assurance of his commitment to dealing with challenging economic circumstances, and investing in the future to build Labour's enduring aim: the fair society, defined by social mobility, where everyone has a fair chance to succeed.
Of David Cameron's Conservatives he said
Just think where our country would be if we'd listened to them. No paternity leave, no New Deal, no Bank of England independence, no Sure Start, no devolution, no civil partnerships, no minimum wage, no new investment in the NHS, no new nurses, no new police, no new schools.Measures announced in his speech included a new commitment to put in legislation our commitment to eradicate child poverty by 2020; a new goal of free nursery places for 2 year olds; a new entitlement for primary school pupils to one-to-one tuition if they are behind expectations and are making slow progress in English and/or maths in Key Stage 2; a commitment to get 1 million more families on broadband by 2012 and a commitment to end prescription charges for cancer patients.
So let's hear no more from the Conservatives - we did fix the roof while the sun was shining.
