Last night, BUCF were fortunate enough to be invited to Stoke on Trent to have dinner with the great ex-Prime Minister Sir John Major. The event which was organised to raise money for the local PPC’s in Staffordshire was extremely successful and what was especially uplifting, was the fact that a majority of the audience of over 100 people were in their teens or 20’s.
This is just another sign of the rising support that the Conservative Party is receiving from the Britain’s young people who, having had lived a majority of their lives under the defunct, inept and deceitful Labour governments of Blair and Brown have now chosen the ‘Party of Change’ in 2010.
Sir John spoke in depth to members of BUCF and was especially interested in their campaigning achievements and their charity fund-raising, such as for Help4Heroes.
The ex-Prime Minister also gave an extremely rousing speech to the whole audience which was greatly received. He spoke of the need for change in Britain, his immense confidence in Cameron’s leadership, and his opinion of Labour’s dire 13 years in government.
Finally he ended the evening by highlighting the fact that; “a party which makes the wrong decisions, on the most important choices, at every opportunity should never have the chance to govern” and that is why we need to work hard throughout Britain to rid ourselves of this despicable Labour government.
BUCF thanks the members of the Conservative Party in Staffordshire for inviting us to meet with John Major and for giving us the opportunity to listen to a man who knows only too well how important it is to have the Conservative Party in Government.
