David Cameron will say profit, wealth creation, tax cuts and enterprise are not 'dirty' words in his conference speech today.
Concluding the Conservative's annual gathering in Manchester the prime minister will depict Labour leader Ed Miliband as being anti-business after he announced he would axe a corporation tax cut if he wins power.
During the speech to party activists, which will be just under an hour long, Mr Cameron will say: 'We know profit, wealth creation, tax cuts, enterprise...these are not dirty, elitist words - they're not the problem...they really are the solution because it's not government that creates jobs, it's businesses.'
The prime minister will also defend the government's policy on education claiming 'you don't help children succeed by dumbing down education.'
In the speech, which will be delivered using an autocue in contrast to previous years when he spoke with no notes, he will also clearly set himself apart from his Liberal Democrat coalition partners.

He will say: 'When the election comes, we won't be campaigning for a coalition...we will be fighting heart and soul for a majority Conservative government - because that is what our country needs.'
He will also claim that 'finishing the job is about more than clearing up the mess we were left.'
