Paul Holmes - CF National Chairman elect.

As it stands

Conservative Future is officially struggling to attract candidates for the position of National Chairman tbg can tonight reveal.

Peter Smallwood has sensationally backed down from his so-called 'heir to Howlett' bid to lead the Tory Youth telling London Spin "I doubt this is the right time for me". Sounds like a young Tory-esq David Miliband don't you think? Maybe he'll be defeated by his brother next time round.

After being in talks with Oliver Cooper, tbg can reveal he has stopped replying to any correspondence.

The Ineligible Alastair Wilson pulled out of the race last month without a tear shed.

Does anybody except Paul Holmes want to lead the Tory Youth into 2015? Or do they see such terms as worth skipping.
