It’s quiet during summer so let’s have some fun and join the Conservative party.
Ok, admittedly, they’re not much fun when you have to attend the rubber chicken dinner fundraisers, paying exorbitant £s for works canteen food c1970s with a glass of free warm white wine and having to dig deep for the raffle of out of date chocolates or a signed photo of Theresa May, but there is an upside to my opening line.
Do you want to change the course of our country? Do you want Brexit to be delivered? If so, we have to play the game.
Don’t give up your membership of UKIP or For Britain, or whoever you vote for, keep that but join the Conservative party and change it from inside.
If you have a high profile social media platform then it’s going to be difficult. But if you are just disgruntled from Tunbridge Wells or fed up from Feltham, then join.
Many of us are doing just this. MPs and association chairmen are reporting an upsurge in membership. It’s people like you that are joining, not for their love of the Maybot.
You don’t have to attend the rubber chicken dinners or ladies’ luncheons but do attend the AGMs and vote. Do attend the events with visiting ministers and tell them what you think, and do exercise your right in the most important part of your membership – your vote for the Tory party leadership contest. Vote and use it well.
Let’s change our country.
