Hoff to tackle CCHQ elite.



Conservative Future Deputy Chairman (Political) candidate, Stephen Hoffman, says he is ready to face down CF elitism in a statement on his website. Hoffman thinks CF is successful in London regarding events, but this is not replicated across the rest of the country.

Hoffman says: "The problem is that this experience (social events, debates etc) hasn’t been repeated across the country. On the campaign trail I’ve spoken to many CF members and they’ve all had similar stories. We’ve held great events, despite the barriers put in our way by CF elites, or we have had some fantastic plans vetoed by Local Associations who are scared of offending the Party leadership."

In a statement to top blog, gossiptory, Hoffman said: "I think it is time that CF was made fun for everyone, not just those in London. I was lucky to live near London last year and attended fantastic events where the drinks were flowing and the debate extremely free, despite those at the elites in CCHQ trying to shut the debate down. I want to spread this experience across the country and work with NGOs, Charities, Think Tanks and Celebrities so this can be made possible."

First, the majority of staff in CCHQ are not CF age.
Second, who is the elite he is talking about? If you are referring to those that are branch chairman, that is hugely insulting to their hard work this year.

Anonymous, maybe I would be able to accept your bravery if you deigned to show who you are.

There are many CCHQ staff and interns who are of CF age. To say they are not is quite frankly not true and from attending YBF this week and speaking to people who have worked or have previously worked for CCHQ this is not true. Incidentally I know of quite a few people at CCHQ who are over CF age and have received ballots. I have names (that for their sakes)I will keep anonymous, but I don't think I should just pretend that this isn't happening. Do you not want free and fair elections.

I think there are many great branch, regional and University Chairman. However there are some who are not doing such a good job. As I will not launch into personal attacks I'm not going to name names. However when huge swathes of Warrington, Manchester, Leeds, York, Nottingham and Leicester CF members who are all members of associations and the Party, have got their Local Association's to contact CCHQ and still haven't received ballots, it is no wonder they feel there is a them and us attitude. This is the elitism I am talking about.

You may not like everything I say, but I've bothered to go across the country and get in touch with a variety of people in many different settings so I can hear from all Conservatives. Your very welcome to get in touch with me by email.
