Conservative Way Forward was founded in 1991 to defend and build upon the achievements of our founding President Lady Margaret Thatcher, and to adapt her values to British life today.
25 years later, we are setting out to make the case afresh for a Conservative Party that fights for working people, by promoting our Nine Principles and their practical implementation in Government.
Our former Prime Minister - David Cameron - has described us as "the largest and most effective pressure group within the Conservative movement today".
The exercise of political power, with the consent of the people – through regular elections on the basis of universal suffrage and a secret ballot.
The most effective system of wealth creation. Free markets are blind to gender, race, class or religion.
Domestic and global – to maximise freedom of choice and individual responsibility in an improved society.
For responsible individuals, guaranteed by the rule of law administered by an independent judiciary and minimal state activity.
Defined by geography, tradition, inheritance and sense of identity.
Fostered by a low tax, low inflation economy – with currency exchange rates determined by the free market.
Each nation must be free to determine its policies to the benefit of its citizens.
The first duty of the state is to provide external and internal defence of the citizenry.
For individuals must be maximised – even if the state accepts responsibility for provision of a safety net.
Feel the same?
We're fighting for a stronger, healthier economy: where everyone has the chance of a better life. That's why we're out campaigning in all weathers, in all parts of Britain!
