PM will 'roll up sleeves and fight' for economic future

David Cameron has pledged to 'stick to the plan' to fix the economy and said he is 'ready to fight' to improve the competitiveness of the UK.

"Some of the changes we need to be competitive will be a big fight. Housing reform, planning reform, the building of new roads, new by-passes.

"The highspeed rail, these are fundamental changes, they are essential for the future of our economy but they are not - and I don't expect them to be - universally supported.
