CONSERVATIVE FUTURE (CF) is much like the Conservative Education Society, the Conservative Christian Fellowship or any other listed "link group" on the Party website, according to Tory Party Chairman Grant Shapps.
TBG understands everybody who joins the Conservatives and are 30 or under is automatically listed as Conservative Future in Party membership statistics. At least, this used to be the case.
Indeed if everyone 30 and under is a CF'er then that would have made Grant Shapps one when at the age of 29 he was beaten by Lib Dem Simon Hughes in North Southwark and Bermondsey. At one stage Shapps actually conceded defeat to the Labour candidate rather than eventual winner Hughes, who had just got engaged at the time.
An outraged anonymous CF'er sensationally blasted the Tory Party Chairman telling TBG - "What an idiot. What the f*ck is wrong with him?"
There goes the auto-enrol.
