PARLIAMENT STREET Chairman & big beast Tory activist Patrick Sullivan has allegedly been attacked in what was described by witnesses as a "palm splat egg on head" assault by a left-wing protester at Conservative Party Conference in Manchester, TBG can reveal.

It's understood that Sullivan had only just arrived in Manchester at conference and was set-upon with brutish physicality by a balding leftie who was apparently wrestled to ground and arrested by police.

TBG understands Parliament Street, a leading centre-right think tank, Chairman has given a statement to the authorities and is said to be OK but "shaken-up".

George Osborne is Right on Tax Credit Cuts.

GEORGE OSBORNE is absolutely right to resist calls for changes to so called "tax credit cuts" following a protest by 60,000 trades union activists in Manchester on Sunday headed by one Len McCluskey.

Is this the same Len McCluskey who's Unite union contributed £160,000 to Jeremy Corbyn's Campaign to become Labour Leader, £89,000 towards Tom Watson's Campaign to become Deputy Leader and £85,000 towards Sadiq Khan's Campaign to win the Labour Nomination for Mayor of London?

Whilst I agree with the article in the Daily Express comments section on Monday October 5th that said that "Common-sense policies will keep the Tories on course" I most certainly disagree with the assertion that "tax credit cuts are bad politics."

If that were the case then why does the latest You Gov Poll have the Conservatives leading labour by 37% to 31%? Let's put it all into perspective.

During the 2015 General Election Campaign when I was touring marginal seats on the Conservatives Battle Bus that I correctly predicted would win them a outright majority for the first time since 1992 I met employer after employer who argued that tax credits reduced productivity in the workplace.

The average so called "cut" to tax credits is £25.00 per week.

That's roughly four hours extra work per week at the national minimum wage.

If this doesn't prove what has been wrong with the British economy for the last twenty years then nothing will.

Tax Credits are a subsidising menace to the British economy, we didn't need them under the 1979 to 1997 Conservative Government, in my own opinion Labour used them to buy votes from the low paid, and we don't need them now.

Therefore, the sooner they are scrapped entirely the better.

EXCLUSIVE: South Tees Tories Bullying Tactics Lead to Threats & Demands.

Jade Smith (Center) with Tories Charles Heslop and Malcom Griffiths

THE TEEN TORY who sensationally quit the Conservative Party after claims she was being bullied by her local Chairman and others after unfavourable social media posts is still being hounded by South Tees Conservative Association Officials, TBG can reveal.

The Secretary for South Tees sent the former Tory, Jade Smith, 17, an email demanding an apology and threatening court action over her claims, according to sources.

In email exchanges seen by TBG the Secretary required Miss Smith to provide, "A total retraction of these unproven and unfounded comments contained in your resignation and I want to be copied in especially the comment, 'The Secretary once referred to me as a puppet of the deputy chair Political'. I did not at any time make this comment and if you do not issue a retraction to me and all of the people who received this tender of resignation defaming my good name and character then I want to know who gave you this totally untrue information to enable me to confront them personally and defend myself and I want to be copied in."

The ranting and strong demands are ongoing by South Tees officials to the young girl, who suffers from type 2 bipolar which symptoms include depression & social anxiety.

TBG has been contacted by witnesses who back up Miss Smith's claims that the Secretary told her that she was the, "Puppet of the deputy chair Political."

A South Tees Conservative Member told TBG: "Most worrying is the constant bullying and harassment from Association Chair' Chris Hobson and the Secretary towards Jade Smith. The threat of legal action is severely affecting the health of Jade. A number of members, including myself, have flagged this up. We are worried for Jade's state of health."

EXCLUSIVE: Tory Activists Queue Up to Launch 'Anti-Clique, Anti-Bullying' CF National Executive Bids.

A NUMBER of Conservative Future (CF) activists are set to launch "anti-bullying, anti-career politician, anti-scandal, anti-clique" internal election bids in the wake of the suicide of Tory activist Elliott Johnson, who left a note about bullies in the party.

TBG can exclusively reveal the rumours of a possible challenger to the CF chairmanship favourites Stephen Canning and Luke Springthorpe.

Overheard at last nights’ Pint and Patter with Conservatives for Liberty, a relatively unknown "with a pint in hand," was telling others they planned to run in the forthcoming elections "on an anti-bullying, anti-career politician, anti-scandal, anti-clique ticket." TBG can guess this will only be welcomed with open arms following recent events.
Conservative activist was planning their bid to be the next leader. An attendee of the event said the CF member,

Although the activist was not named to TBG, this blog has been told they "will be in attendance at Conservative conference in Manchester" and will be "secretly picking up support." They went on to say the Tory supporter was "proposing uploading all personal attacks during their bid to their campaign website to show members just how bitchy the youth wing has got."

With support for the favourites heavily split and recently damaged, TBG believes this runner could well be in with an outside shot.

Well known activist Issac Duffy reckons running for chair' "should be easy" as "all of the Roadtrip group will be gone". He also has gracious plans for the regions as this leaked conversation shows us (left).

Popular activist Liam Walker is also understood to be eyeing up the top CF National Executive post of Chairman and has been particularly vocal on the issue of bullying.

Merseyside CF Area Chairman Emilio Chiquito exclusively told TBG: "Good to see some discourse developing in regards to the CF exec. I act as Merseyside Area Chairman for them and for far too long have I been embarrassed by the personalities that run this organization and the prevailing culture that was childish at best and incredibly harmful at worst.

"The comment about the idea these sorts thinking they have a 'career in youth politics' really hits the nail on the head. There needs to be a shake up and some different people coming through the ranks. The current lot going forward on a joint RoadTrip/YBF billet was perhaps the most unhealthy thing that could have happened to this organisation.

"The CF exec needs more diverse and representative people on it, it's not enough to shrug and say 'hey that's youth politics for you'."

A Tribute: Things Elliott Says.

Elliott's TBG ident for his articles on this blog

With story after story reported in the news over the last fortnight, TBG decided it was time to remind people of the reason we all loved and adored the talented Elliott Johnson. This blog looks back and tells the story of Elliott through his work.

Elliott’s first blog piece for #ThingsElliottSays, 'Getting Rid of Gordon' was published in early January 2013. Although a serious start, he was never one to miss a funny screenshot, caption or story; TBG's favourite being the reporting of Nick Clegg strutting his stuff with his Lib Dem colleagues in a Sheffield nightclub.

As well as reporting on all the major political parties, Elliott could also be relied on to provide an in-depth and entertaining commentary on youth elections, and was quick to pounce on any scandal as it broke.

And we all remember Fletchergate...

Away from the satire, Elliott could likewise report on serious matters in vast detail, and even wrote for this blog on the odd occasion.

But as well as his eye for a story, TBG will remember Elliott for being an avid campaigner for the Conservative Party, as well as having a great knack for interviewing.

TBG will miss Elliott and his passion for a good story. We hope other people will remember him for the same reasons.

EXCLUSIVE: Tory Youth Leaders Face Calls to Resign Over Elliott Johnson Suicide.

CF Exec face Elliott Johnson (above) suicide backlash

THE NATIONAL EXECUTIVE of Conservative Future, the Tory youth wing, are facing calls to resign following allegations of a culture of bullying that led to the suicide of young Tory Elliott Johnson who was only 21 years of age.

Robert Porter, Deputy Area Chairman of Worcestershire CF tweeted, "If they don't, I'm going to resign, disgusted they lead us."

Another activist called Jenny tweeted, "The entire CF Exec ran on Mark Clarke's slate and have kept very schtum on these bullying allegations. It's disgusting."

One source said: "The likes of Ellie Vesey-Thompson, India Brummitt and Stephen Canning have been too close to Mark Clarke for too long. The idea they have a career in the youth movement, let alone as Parliamentary candidates is a fantasy.

"They were willing to get into bed with Clarke’s campaign in exchange for jobs in all different positions."

"If they have any decency they will quit before conference."
