Howlett hails Olympics.

Conservative Future Chairman, Ben Howlett, has hailed the Olympic Games as a massive opportunity for the United Kingdom. In an article on ConservativeHome Howlett says this is the time to "ignite the flames of economic growth and social opportunity".

The CF Chairman called on the Government to seize the day and grab this chance to sell UK PLC and get the economy growing.

tbg. couldn't agree more. This is a fantastic event that will set many imaginations alight and inspire the nation. And is a real money spinner if we play our cards right.

Howlett said: "Tonight the eyes of the world will be watching as the Olympic Flame soaring above London is lit. There is no better time for a spark to ignite the flames of economic growth and social opportunity. This Government has the chance to use this opportunity to sell Britain PLC and improve the lives of generations.

The Olympics can and should provide the confidence that will underpin the revitalisation of the economy. With the world focused on Britain, the Government can use this opportunity to remind everyone that we are a great investment opportunity"
