In response to a comment I saw on a previous blog that said ‘oh, so you met Ann Widdecombe and went to Brussels for 4 days, how out of touch you are’, I thought I’d just spell out how active BUCF has been since May.
So that all can read this and take it in effectively, perhaps a list format might be appropriate and helpful!
Since the new committee took over in May, we have met with:
Ian Duncan Smith
Baroness Sayeeda Warsi
Tim Loughton MP
David Davis MP
Chris Kelly MP
Chloe Smith MP
Chris Grayling MP
Douglas Carswell MP
Sajid Javid MP
Karen Lumley MP
Dan Hannan MEP
Jacqueline Foster MEP
BUCF also campaigned tirelessly throughout the General Election in numerous seats, many of which were to turn blue.
I can proudly say also, that we have held 16 social events in this time too, as well as a fantastic 4 day trip to Brussels. In addition to this, we have attended 3 Annual Dinners, linked up with Birmingham Conservative Future, City Branch Conservatives, Yorkshire and Humber CF and the City of Liverpool CF.
So in essence, clearly some societies know how to have a good time, and provide their members with a range of events and opportunities. Perhaps other societies would like to look at BUCFs track record before making comments about our activity.
