Liz Truss has hit the stage of the Tory party conference to the sounds of Moving On Up by M People.

Speculation had surrounded which song would accompany the Prime Minister ahead of her crunch speech.

Ms Truss is today seeking to reassure Tory party members following the Government’s ‘disaster’ mini-budget.

But her choice of song has already proven controversial in itself.

M People’s former lead singer, Heather Small, has previously spoken out against the Government’s policy to send refugees to Rwanda.

In August, the 57-year-old had posted on Instagram that she was ‘horrified’ at the plans.

Small’s son, Labour councillor James Small-Edwards, wrote on Twitter today that Ms Truss’s choice in song was an ‘apt choice’.

He added: ‘This tired and out of touch Tory Government is indeed moving on out.’

Like Ms May, she is making her maiden speech to the Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham.

And it’s not the first time Moving On Up has been used for the soundtrack of a fresh Prime Minster – Gordon Brown included the nineties hit during the Labour Party conference in Manchester in 2008.

In full, the lyrics to M People’s Moving On Up

You’ve done me wrong, your time is up
You took a sip from the devil’s cup
You broke my heart, there’s no way back
Move right out of here, baby, go on pack your bags

Just who do you think you are?
Stop actin’ like some kind of star
Just who do you think you are?
Take it like a man, baby, if that’s what you are

‘Cause I’m movin’ on up, you’re movin’ on out
Movin’ on up, nothin’ can stop me
Movin’ on up, you’re movin’ on out
Time to break free, nothin’ can stop me, yeah
They brag a man has walked in space
But you can’t even find my place
There ain’t nothin’ you can do
‘Cause I’ve had enough of me, baby, bein’ part of you

Just who do you think you are?
This time you’ve gone too far
Just who do you think you are?
Take it like a man, baby, if that’s what you are

‘Cause I’m movin’ on up, you’re movin’ on out
Movin’ on up, nothin’ can stop me
Movin’ on up, you’re movin’ on out
Time to break free, nothin’ can stop me

Movin’ on up, movin’ on up, movin’ on up
Movin’ on up, movin’ on up, movin’ on up
Movin’ on up, movin’ on up, movin’ on up
Movin’ on up, movin’ on up, movin’ on up
Movin’ on up, you’re movin’ on out
Movin’ on up, nothin’ can stop me
Movin’ on up, you’re movin’ on out
Time to break free, nothing can stop me
Movin’, movin’, movin’, nothin’ can stop me
Movin’, movin’, time to break free, nothin’ can stop me
