Prime Minister David Cameron reiterated his commitments to create more jobs and clearing the deficit within the stipulated time.

In an article published in the Telegraph to mark the first 100 days of his government, Cameron said he is determined to cut taxes and increase minimum wages to show the Tories are the real party for the working people.

“One hundred days ago I stood on the steps of Downing Street and told the British people that the first Conservative majority government for 18 years would govern on behalf of everyone. One nation, one United Kingdom,” the prime minister said..

“Our central task is to finish the job we started in turning around our economy. Through our long term economic plan we are getting the fundamentals right, generating growth, creating jobs, clearing the deficit and offering the British people the security they need to get on in their lives.

“I am determined that we will build on this foundation. By cutting taxes, reforming welfare and increasing minimum wages we are showing we are the real party of working people.

On the challenge of tackling poverty, we’re attacking the causes of poverty, not just the symptoms, by tackling generational unemployment, strengthening families and ensuring that work always pays.

“On the challenge of delivering security in a dangerous world, we will confront the extremist threat in all its forms and build a stronger, prouder sense of British identity.

“100 days in, our government has the ideas to build the one nation vision – and to deliver real social mobility in our country. We will not waste a second in getting on with the job, supporting working people and delivering the prosperity and security on which our future depends,” the prime minister concluded.
