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.
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.
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.
Whenever the Department for International Development is given public attention, it is usually for sending our hard-earned taxpayers’ money abroad to foreign dictators, instead of to those who genuinely need it – the poorest and most vulnerable in the world. Many people also rightly argue that charity should start at home because – whilst poverty has been massively reduced as a result of free market capitalism – we still have some who need desperately need our help in our own country. Another thing highlighted is the ridiculous £45 million spent on the department staff’s bonuses over a five-year period.
Post-Chilcot, the anti-war left is as self-confident as ever.
It's not only the Chilcot Report itself. They also feel vindicated by horrific events across the Middle East.
Upcoming Events & Action Days
Sir Gerald Howarth MP and Conservative Way Forward invite you to join us on the Terrace of the House of Commons for the Annual CWF Parliamentary Summer Drinks Reception.
Now that Parliamentary sovereignty has been reasserted, where better to enjoy a summer's evening of wine and political conversation, than the House of Commons. We will have special guests to be announced!
There are various ticket types available via the link below.
We very much hope to see you there!
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.
Join Conservative Way Forward at Conference again this year on our action-packed Campaign Bus!
Here's the plan for Sunday 2nd October:
2pm: Assemble outside the secure zone and board the CWF campaign bus. Precise location TBC.
5pm: We'll be back at the secure zone by 5pm.
Please RSVP to say you'll join us and reserve your seat on the bus. We only have 75 spots available and it will be first-come-first-served: so please only book a seat if you can really join us on the day.
