Prime Minister David Cameron listed "key areas of national weakness compared to the rest of the world" during a speech on Britain's future.
Highlighting issues the Conservatives and Labour are divided on, Mr Cameron said the key areas that need changing are Britain's:
- Debt-fuelled, unbalanced economy
- Bloated welfare system
- Under-performing education system
"Fixing these things are the three key domestic priorities of this Government. And though it's taking time, we are making progress and getting our country into shape", he added.
