Vote Raja for Conservative Future Chairman for Wales.

In the third of our FOUR blockbuster announcements, tBg is urging CF members to vote Zahid Raja Chairman for Wales.

tBg has been following the Raja2010 campaign and has been more than impressed with the effort, consistency and innovative ideas coming from it.

Zahid Raja proposes a Growth, Work Experience and Internships policy.

Zahid has worked with NGO’s like UNICEF (President of the Swansea branch) and Amnesty (National STAN committee) in developing their youth branches in Wales. Zahid proposes to create Welsh internships to complete some essential work in CF. Giving new young activists a meaningful role at the heart of our politics.

Zahid Raja has also fought for and won Swansea University CF free accommodation and places to Conference. He wants to equip other branches at Universities to get the same. Raja also plans to launch ‘Blue Hours’ – a concept that adds competition to campaigning.

Zahid Raja has massive potential within our Party and could go all the way one day.

Keep up-to-date with the Raja2010 for CF Wales campaign.

Connect with Zahid Raja via Facebook and Twitter.

shame hes a communist

Umm, I have mixed feeling about this guy. He is smart and able, but his politics are very "NUS" and fall against a lot of the basic premises of Conservatism. That said he is young and if the youth don't come up with new ideas then the party dies.

My only real issues are that some of his policy is very Left wing and his rant at the TPA, did him no favours. Team Howlett have boxed him into the idea of him being Howletts man in Wales, something that will do him no favours against Tucker.

Overall he has serious potential, he is the kind of person that an organisation like CF should exist for. I hope he does ok.

Thus far on the TBG Endorsements my verdict is:

Hilley - Strongly agree.
Raja- Inclined to agree.
Swann- Very very very very very....strongly disagree.

So your doing 4? National Chairman must be the next one, please make it Khan! He is the only one yet to give a massive great reason not to vote for him.

It appears that 'anonymous' is not satisfied with a modern, moderate Conservative Party. Zahid is not a communist and believes in a market economy with a social conscience. I don't believe anybody who I know would describe Ken Clarke, somewhat of a legend and an idol within the Tory Reform Group, as a 'communist'.

My understanding of Zahid is that his principles and politics are not entirely divorced from that of mine. Because I (at least want) believe my politics to be where the Conservative Party will be in the near future, I would agree with theBlueGuerilla's comments that he's 'one to watch' in the party, considering that the old ideology of social conservatism is dying.

I don't see the TRG's principles as being inherently left-wing; more, they are not libertarian principles. That doesn't necessarily make them left-wing. It appears to me that many of the frontrunners, particularly the girl who is running for the Deputy Chairman (Political) post is a market libertarian right-winger. And that's where I believe the problem in Conservative Future lies today - and has since its inception. Candidates and the group tend to hide behind libertarian philosophy and 'logic' to defend what are - in my view - unethical and absurd ideals that, put simply, they'll grow out of.

I don't know the other candidate for the Welsh chair, so this would be something you'd need to ask him - and I'll cast no aspersions about him as a candidate on that basis. But I'd suggest that if you want someone who will do good things for the party in Wales and will do good things for the party in years to come, back Zahid.

Frankly it's Wales, not exactly a Conservative stronghold. The region need's energy more than it needs anything else, Zahid seems committed to getting things moving and for the reason I think he would be a good chair.

Let's be honest it would be difficult to be a bad Chairman in Wales, we just need an honest hardworking person at the helm. I see his politics as Conservative Liberal Idealistic Libertarianism, so not bad.

tBg thinks Raja is the only guy capable of getting CF noticed & rolling in Wales.

I agree with the Guerilla.

TBG, I agree 100% with your endorsement of Clare and Zahid, both sound. I see why you could only endorse Swann. But how can you like sound candidates and then be a "pro-Howlett" blog, the guy is an idiot.

Liam Rhodes said...

So, Ben Howlett is an idiot? Is this in comparison with someone who walked around with a placard advocating slavery?

Liam there are idiotic gestures and then general idiocy.

So looks like Wales might be interesting as Zahid's home branch does not exist according to his cchq tweet.

Zahid Raja is not a Tory he's a Lib Dem orange-booker. He'd have more in common with Clegg than Thatcher. We don't need whining lefties inside the party.

Liam Rhodes said...

I despair at some people, I really do.

"Liam there are idiotic gestures and then general idiocy." No, I'm sorry, anybody who does such an idiotic 'gesture' is not fit for office. It's as simple as that.

"Zahid Raja is not a Tory he's a Lib Dem orange-booker. He'd have more in common with Clegg than Thatcher." John, have you ever seen the TRG's web site? Give it a read.
