I am delighted to have been asked to join the Advisory Board of a new think tank called Blue Collar Conservatism.
Blue Collar Conservatism is a forum to explore policies and ideas to increase Conservative support amongst blue collar voters and to help secure an overall majority in 2015. It aims to transform this into long term support and attract additional blue collar and aspirational voters.
As someone who came from what was a typically Northern working class background I firmly believe that there are many misconceptions about the Conservative Party only been for the rich and well off. I believe that nothing could be further from the truth. The Conservative Party is at its best when it is setting out a clear vision how people can improve their position through hard work with the Government taking less of their hard earned money.
