EXCLUSIVE: CF Chairman candidate James Deighton launches manifesto.

tbg can reveal that Tory Youth Wing candidate for Chairman is set to James Deighton launch his manifesto today, the same day as national election hustings are due to take place in Birmingham.

Deighton's manifesto states he will be a "Chairman not a President" and wants to run a nationally active Conservative Future (CF) Executive saying:

"I pledge to arrange ‘Meet the Chairman’ events in all the twelve regions, one taking place each month. I will hold quarterly national exec meetings in the regions. I will also co-ordinate national social and campaign events to coincide with these regional National Management Executive(NME) meetings."

Deighton also wants to give equal opportunities to NME elected members and give Best Practice the title of National Deputy Chairman:

"All the elected officers should be equal and given equal responsibilities. The Best Practice officer therefore should be a deputy chairman and considered as such. It makes no sense to undermine the authority of the fourth elected member of the NME who puts in as much effort as the others."

National CF Chairman candidate James Deighton also has ides for a quarterly CF Magazine, a twinning scheme for CF branches where strong established branches act as mentors and assist new or weaker branches, a yearly CF parliamentary rally to be held within the Palace of Westminster and redraft the CF constitution to put it to a vote at the next election.

"The right experience. The right choice.Your Conservative Future."
