EXCLUSIVE: Controversy Over 'Fake' Tory Youth Margaret Thatcher Award.


Sarah-Jane Accepts Margaret Thatcher Award

CONSERVATIVE FUTURE [CF] National Deputy Chairman Sarah-Jane Sewell has received the inaugural "Margaret Thatcher Award for Out Standing Contribution to CF", awarded by East Midlands CF and its Chairman Richard Harris.

Sarah was proud to accept the ground-breaking award with a blog and video post to her supporters. Sarah says - "It was a real honour when Richard contacted me to let me know I had been awarded this. The Conservative Party is me, it’s everything that I live for."

However, some East Midlands Tory Youth members were not too happy with the choice of National Executive member Miss Sewell to receive the award, even going as far as to sensationally call the award "fake", alleging it only has an interest in furthering the National Deputy and probable 2014 National Chairman candidate's agenda.

One local young Tory told tbg - "I have been part of the East Midlands CF for millennia, and never heard of Sarah-Jane before she became National Deputy. There are a lot of members in my area who deserve an award. A number of people are making an official complaint against this fake award."

There was more uncertainty from another CF member as to why the award was not given to a regular activist - "Self-awarded Sewell didn't deserve that award. There are thousands of volunteers across the country who are out every weekend and don't make a fuss of it. Those volunteers who crack on and work hard need to be commended."

Left-wing blog Political Scrapbook tweeted that the award made them "cringe" and is the kind of thing that "put people off student politics".

Hi,

My name is Andrew Edmonson and I've been looking for a boyfriend in CF for about a year.

Most of the boys are immature and juvenile and are only interesting in one thing - which isn't dating.

I'd like to find a loving and caring boyfriend who I can go for meals with and maybe the cinema.

Any suggestions?

Thank you.

Andrew.

Being from the region, I'm always concerned by certain things. Maybe SJ was awarded the 'award' for the SENSATIONAL way in which she built up her local branch. Can we remember how much she lauded that in her first election? Just out of interest BG, has anyone approached any of her Lincolnshire branch members of CF? I hear they haven't met for a while. Could this be absenteeism in practise?

anyone notice the two reginonal positions Sarah Jayne mentioned at the beginning were ones where she was appointed? Hm.

Sarah is the worst possible example of the problems in youth politics. She is petty, spiteful, and vindictive. She is open about her "clever scheme" to have some willing friends give her some award to increase her presence and "gravitas". Disgusting. Everything that is wrong with CF.

I don't think I've ever seen anyone this unpopular. It's amazing.

talking of branch members of her first branch why have we never heard from them ? have they ever endorsed SJ ? surely they're in the best position to tell us all in CF what she's like as chairperson ?

As someone close to many of those who were the founding members of the branch in question (although not a member myself, I'm actually a Labour supporter!), I can tell you from what I heard and witnessed, the first elections (or lack of them) were truly vicious. More vicious than they needed to be anyway. This is why so many young people avoid politics.

People have too much time on their hands if they're complaining about an award they deem to be fake...

I used to be a big SJ fan, I even voted for her, but no longer, she has turned everything into a publicity opportunity for her at the expense of CF.

Cringe. I could only watch about ten seconds of the video before having to turn of. Its like she thinks she is a film star being awarded an Oscar. Nauseating to the extreme

I agree with Mr Cringe (8:39pm). This caused me to run into the next door room and hide my head in a duvet. My nerves are frankly shot.

SJ does reign supreme other certain more attractive cf women because unlike one notable individual she isn't sleeping with the chairman.

Is this a real award?

Has anyone sought permission from Margaret Thatcher's family? Or what about the Conservative Party leadership? Also, has this award signed off by the Conservative Future leadership? If not, then can Sarah-Jane and Richard Harris please explain why they have sought to create a fictitious award and should immediately apologise to Margaret Thatcher's family and the wider Conservative Party.

SJ can take her simpering, whining demeanor and just fuck off. I'm voting for the "anybody but SJ" candidate next election.

Leave her alone ffs

I have heard that SJ applied for the position of CF Chairman 2014. This video is clearly embarrassing and it will kill al her chances (if there were any in the first place)

I'm sure S-J's supporters are the silent majority, as they were in the last CF election.

Why has TBG deleted the valid comment around when the instigators of this 'False' award (inc SJ as she self-awarded) sought permission from the family, CCHQ and the CF exec to use the Thatcher name.
I suggest that an apology is made to the family and wider party as a whole. This wont just sit and blow over... not this time.

Great to see the conservative future placing the party firmly into the bargain bucket of history.
Keep fighting.Silly egomaniacs.

ssb said...

What does this have to do with her ego? It was an acceptance video because she wasn't able to attend the actual event. What's the big deal?

you people should be ashamed, cyberbullying this person

TBG is censoring far too many valid comments and stifling debate. You suck tbg.

Not too mention she is seemingly dating Frodo Baggins now as well...
