Elizabeth Anderson: A plan for politics that won't help

Jeremy Corbyn seems to think he has a plan.  Which is nice, but I'm not entirely sure what he's setting out to achieve.  His plan is to get rid of the House of Lords, and create an elected chamber.  This idea bobs up every now and then.  He also plans to create new 'citizens assemblies'.

Liam Taylor: Britain must make a success of Brexit to show Europe a brighter way

When the referendum result was announced a storm of fury swept across social media. Many of my generation were screaming betrayal. It seemed as if they thought the world had just ended. Likewise, we were told of anger from European leaders, that Britain would be vilified and punished (though it now looks as if cool headed German pragmatism will win the day). But, as for the people they are supposed to represent, the view from across the channel seems very different indeed.    Continue reading

Chris Rowell: Sugar tax doesn’t have to be taxing…

Jamie Oliver’s wonky views on sugar tax have no place in a free society. You might respond to me by saying something like “Chris, you’ve clearly had it in for Jamie Oliver since inferior service at Jamie’s Italian ruined your cousin’s birthday lunch.” In that case, I’m afraid you’d be wrong, I opposed Mr Oliver’s Sugar Tax campaign long before the service at Jamie’s Italian in Greenwich ruined a family meal for my cousin’s birthday, last December.

Robert Kilgour: Care of the Elderly Crisis

The Problem  Despite UK demographics and trends clearly signaling the need for more care home beds the reality is that:  Many more care homes are closing;  Fewer new care homes are being built; and There is a growing net annual loss of care home beds.  That means there is increasing NHS bed blocking, NHS costs and cancelled operations, not to mention that we are not providing as well as we should for the elderly in our society.

Elizabeth Anderson: Grammar schools offer life chances across the board

Grammar schools.  Theresa May only announced the repeal on the ban on new grammar schools over the weekend, and the left-wing parties have started bouncing up and down immediately to shout about how these will fuel social inequality. Continue reading

CWF Action Day at Party Conference 2016!

If you attended the Conservative Party Conference last year in Manchester, you will remember the gangs of socialist Labour protesters who attempted to bring a halt to Conference. They littered the streets, threw eggs at young unsuspecting Tory delegates and generally filled the atmosphere with their particular brand of hatred.

What was Conservative Way Forward's response? We scooped up over 100 activists and took to the streets of Trafford for a positive and cheerful campaigning session led by the local MP, Graham Brady, to tell people why the borough should stay blue: making sure people on low incomes have more money in their pocket instead of crushing them with higher taxes.

CWF at Conference 2016: Sunday evening drinks overlooking the canal

malthouse.jpg

Come and join CWF on Sunday 2nd October at 6pm in one of the most picturesque bars in town - the Malthouse. 

Situated just outside the secure zone overlooking the canal, we will be gathering there after a busy afternoon's campaigning to get the first evening of Conference off to a flying start. 

If you go to the back of the ICC and turn right along the canal, you will see the Malthouse on the right-hand side about 200m along from the secure zone. We will be on the first floor balcony from 6pm and wrapping up proceedings around 8.30/9pm. 

We will be joined by James Cleverly MP on the evening. James is Deputy Chairman of our Parliamentary Council.  He is famous for his hard work before becoming an MP as a member of the GLA and since being a key campaigner for Brexit and one of the most popular MP's you are likely to meet. 

Here's the important bit. If you join us on our action day that afternoon (also with James), you will be rewarded with FREE TICKETS to our Sunday evening drinks.  If not, tickets are just £10, click on the link below to book yours.

We will see you there!
