ConservativeFor the first time in 18 years, the United Kingdom’s all Conservative cabinet has held its inaugural meeting on Tuesday.

The newly re-elected Prime Minister, David Cameron, told the all-Tory cabinet meeting that they must focus on “bread and butter” ways of improving people’s lives.

Cameron, while addressing his top team for the first time since his victory, promised a “down-to-earth” conservative agenda focused on extending opportunity.

The re-elected Prime Minister also insisted that all changes to public services must be rooted in “true social justice and genuine compassion”.

Laws on work and childcare are expected to be among the priorities of the new UK government.

The Conservatives won a 12-seat majority in the House of Commons in last Thursday’s election, winning 331 of the 650 seats.

The British Prime Minster, David Cameron, shortly after the election victory, promised to lead a government for “one nation” and make “Great Britain greater” adding that the UK was “on the brink of something special”.

He also pledged more powers for Scotland, in a response to the rise of the SNP, which brings with it the threat of another independence vote and claims that the Conservative Government will have “no legitimacy in Scotland”.

Four Nigerians also won seats in the UK Parliament.

Mr Cameron’s rivals Ed Miliband, Nick Clegg and Nigel Farage, all resigned after election disappointment.
