"David Cameron vows 'assault on those in poverty' in conference speech"

From the BBC:

David Cameron has vowed to devote much of his time in office to "an all-out assault on those in poverty" in his speech to the Conservative Party conference.

The prime minister, who will stand down before the next election, said he wanted to combat "people with deep social problems" and boost downwards social mobility.

Mr Cameron said he wanted his time in power to be remembered as a "defining decade for our country.. the turnaround decade... one which people will look back on and say, 'that's the time when the tide turned… when people no longer felt the current was working with them but going against them'."
