EXCLUSIVE: Tory Champion Declares 'Britain is no Longer the Land of Opportunity for its Youth'.

Michael on a hunt

Former Conservative Future (CF) National Executive member, CF NUS Presidential Candidate and Conservative Councillor, Michael Champion now organises defence exhibitions from the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

He still volunteers for the Party through Gulf Tories, which organise socials and fundraisers with visiting UK Ministers and international political and business figures.

Michael talks to exclusively tbg about employment opportunities in The Gulf and backs a candidate to win the current & scintillating Tory Youth National Chairman election race.

What did you have for breakfast this morning?

"Three Marlboros and two Rennies and a Red Bull."

Do you have a message for tbg readers?

If you’re young and you’re worried about finding a well-paid, challenging job in the UK, you should look abroad.

Sadly, Britain is no longer the land of opportunity for its youth. Dubai, Qatar and Abu Dhabi, in my opinion are the perfect places for you to start your career or to make a career change: Totally tax free earnings, higher average wage amongst ex-pats, all the major international companies are based here, the market is not in recession or stagnation, the labour market is transient giving more opportunity for quick promotion, service is cheap, transport costs next to nothing and crime is very low. Partying at beach resorts in the sun is a bonus as well!

I’m often looking for bright, motivated people with degrees to work in my sector. I’d be happy to talk to them if they’re interested.

Who is involved in the Gulf Tories then?

Some very interesting people actually! We’ve got partners at major international law firms, a private equity pioneer who has just bought Leeds United, a couple of familiar faces who used to work for Number 10 and CCHQ who have made the move over to the private sector in PR. We’re organising events with Generals, Politicians and, soon, even a former President of Pakistan.

What's you favourite fizzy pop beverage?

"Alka Seltzer."

Have you been following the CF elections?

Yes, its been entertaining!

Who are you backing for Chairman?

"I’m backing Cooper. You need to know your enemy to defeat your enemy and he’s best placed to deal with UKIP. I like the policies he’s published – especially to encourage localism and social media. Most of the people I have spoken to about the election seem to be voting for Cooper, he’s got years of activism and campaigning under his belt, so good luck to him."

Champion is part of the old CF clique and an old hand at CF, I find this article interesting not for what is said but what he is planning, Champ always has an ace up his sleeve
