EXCLUSIVE: National Executive Confidence in Tory Youth Leader at Rock Bottom.



CONSERVATIVE FUTURE (CF) sources close to the National Executive have revealed that confidence in the Tory Youth Chairman's leadership is at it's lowest point since elections earlier this year, tbg can reveal.

Apparently the majority of the national executive including figures such as Rob Manning, Sarah-jane Sewell, Ben Corbridge, Matthew Robinson and James Morton are believed to hold the opinion that - "confidence is waning in Oliver Cooper's leadership".

One source sensationally revealed to tbg - "Cooper was given the benefit of the doubt from the outset, however his correspondence with National Executive members is virtually non existent, failing to consult his colleagues on any of his movements as Chairman."

Another source also confirmed that - "At least 4 Regional Chairman have lost confidence in Oliver Cooper's leadership."

What have the National Executive actually done since being elected?

I have not seen anything.

Not that he cares so long as he can slope back to Miss JSJ each night.

Oh he is a useless fool.

Well that will teach him to put his womanising above his duty to cf.

What a load of shit-stirring bollocks this article is.

If you are concerned about someone's performance in a role, any role, not only the national chairman but any CF role; then rather than deliberately setting out to make their lives difficult with rubbish like this it might be more productive to work WITH them and offer them help. This way everyone benefits, and we don't see any petty, childish, ridiculous crap.

Christ... we're young people, there's more to life than this kind of garbage.

I agree with Harry, we need to focus on the issues that matter - not petty point scoring. If CF united we could see the same kind of vote-theft and deceit that failed stockbroker Harry has brought to his other roles.

Tell me Harry, why did you drop out of UCL?

Because he lost an election to a girl

I don't even like Oliver, but even so I feel this is unwarranted given there is no back up. I at least expected the results from those polls that did the rounds last month.

Mo's poll might be interesting, the other one means nothing, it was designed to stir shit, much like this article...

This was inevitable from a part timer who devotes more time it seems to his European Young Conservatives than he does to CF.

I do hope that the naive people who voted for this self seeking greaser are happy with the result. CF is leaderless and adrift.

Oh and as for people blaming the other exec members for not doing anything ask yourself this. If you worked alongside a chairman who ignores you, goes behind your back, and does what ever he likes then why would you bother?

It is far more than just 4 Regional Chairs with no confidence!

There once was a chap named Cooper,
Who thought he should lead Conservative Future,
Through deception and lies,
He gained CF's top prize,
The most usless chairman we can remember!

Because you work for the members of Conservative Future and not the Chairman.

How naive Simon. In CF's structure the chairman sets the tone, lays out what he wants to achieve and the deputies help bring it about. The exec is a team with the chairman as the leading figure. If they all went off and did what they wanted it would be terrible, dysfunctional, and potentially damaging.

The whole thing should be a team effort. Not 7 people doing their own thing without making sure they are all pulling in the same direction. A chairman is there to lead by setting an example and I’m afraid I see precious little of that!

If it's naive to expect people to do their job, then yes, I suppose I am naive. The only thing one can take from what you've written is that if you were a member of the National Executive you would do nothing. The whole point of having "deputies" is that they "deputise" for the Chairman. But this isn't quite true since the Chairman is only primus inter pares anyway.

If a tone or direction is hypothetically lacking then there is nothing preventing the other elected members of the National Executive from banding together and providing one. You yourself recognise this when you mention a "team" in your second paragraph. What happens if one team member lags? The others cover for them.

And don't write anonymously. If you value your opinion so little that you can't sign your name to it then it rather defeats the purpose of writing in the first place.

I think Simon Harley needs a lie down. He seems to get a bit worked up when anyone who disagrees with him voices an opinion.

If the chap put his name to it you would probably badger them to death. You love putting your name to the drivel you write because you are working under the assumption we give a damn what you think. All I can say is glad you didn't get elected. We would never hear the end of it.

It's my understanding that a goodly number of votes for me came from people who were impressed that I told anonymous trolls like to go forth and multiply.

I'll take it as a compliment that you think you'd have heard from me if I'd been elected. It's kind of the point when you seek election to high office: you do your job and you make sure that your constituents are doing it.
