Conservative Way Forward is deeply sorry to announce the untimely and sudden death of its social media consultant and former Political Editor, Elliott Johnson, yesterday.
Elliott joined CWF as Political Editor in June, launching the daily Fast Forward email bulletin which has been well received in Westminster and beyond.
He then took on the part-time role of social media consultant, promoting CWF events, action days, fundraising activities and campaigning on social media.
Donal Blaney, Chairman of the Board of Conservative Way Forward, said:
“Elliott was a talented and enthusiastic blogger who had the potential to become a campaigning conservative journalist. I can only imagine the turmoil that he must have been in to feel that he had no hope and no choice other than to end his life so tragically young. I offer his family my sincerest condolences and prayers."
