Rahman launches Tory Youth National Deputy Chairman Membership campaign.

Jasmine with Birmingham University CF last night

Jasmine Rahman last night sensationally announced that she intends to run for Conservative Future National Deputy Chairman (Membership) in Tory Youth Wing elections this March.

The event at Jewel in Covent Garden included a posh vodka luge, Jasmine face-masks, #TeamJasmine nightclub style bracelets & free drinks. The swarve affair has been widely hailed as the hottest party of the election so far.

The healthy contest will now see Jasmine facing Ellie Vesey-Thompson and current Tory Youth National Deputy Chairman Sarah-Jane Sewell who is looking for a second term on the Tory Youth Wing National Executive.

Conservative Future Leader candidate Oliver Cooper told tbg - "It's great to be at #TeamJasmine's launch for CF Deputy Chairman (Membership). Miss Rahamn would shake things up and listen to every single member."

If anyone is going to address why loads of us have gone in droves to UKIP over the past year, it be her!

Credit to her, it was a very well-handled launch. Hiding the position to build anticipation and then throwing an awesome party?

More of this sort of stuff, please.

P.S. It's 'suave'. ;)

It was built up really well, but it seems that Jasmine's only plan is to buy votes.

An ice sculpture, bracelets & facemasks... how old are we? 10 years old?

Buy votes? With what, exactly?

To deal with the old-fogeyness: vodka luges are not commonly seen amongst those who can't drink; the bracelets looked like event-entry bracelets; and the face masks were clearly just a bit of fun.

Better than another stereotypical Toryboy/girl event where everybody is in suits and trying to act like they're in their forties.

It was like my year 6 party. Shame there wasnt party hats!

I'm afraid that 'TJ' just came across as incredibly immature. SJS is younger than her, but comes across far better.

We don't need to act like we're in our forties, but someone running for this position should at least act their age.

#teamjasmine might be fun & fancy free atm, but the joke would quickly end when she achieved nothing on the National Exec. SJS all the way!

Jasmine will save us all from SJS.

A university student who acts like a university student. Shock. Horror. Etc.

I can't even see a photograph taken in front of the door of 10 Downing Street anywhere on her profile! She's not taking this seriously at all.

On a serious note, Jasmine has work experience in campaigning and PR, she's just as qualified as SJ was when she first ran.

By most accounts everyone enjoyed it (anonymous SJ posters clearly excepted) and it certainly looks more typical of student parties than many CF events, for all the spluttering about 'acting her age'.

I sincerely hope SJ herself isn't as po-faced and petty as her supporters here.

It is quite clear that Cooper has put her up as SJ was supposed to be on his team and she pulled out at last minute because she can't stick him.

Surprised no one has realised????

I'm sorry, but some of these comments are ironically really immature and pathetic. Jasmine had this party as she thought it would be a fun way to meet members and announce that she is running. She obviously takes the position seriously, and has so much experience. Come on, SJ was just a child when she ran, so lets not talk about immaturity here. I've heard a lot about how SJ is rude to many members, ignores the girls and talks to the guys. When I met Jasmine she couldn't be friendlier. That's what we need. #teamjasmine all the way.

Let's not be rude - you can't fault Jasmine on her approachability. She'll happily talk to anyone and doesn't show up to events in black tie or work wear. It's pretty refreshing.

What is it with all the conspiracy theories?

Why is it "bloody obvious" that Jasmine as been "put up by Cooper" to spite Sewell somehow. Irrespective of the fact that there's absolutely no evidence for that, its the sort of thing that only a true CF hack would know, as that sort of thing is utterly opaque to the great majority of members.

Jasmine is running against Sewell because she wants the job. She's not on a slate. Want to assert otherwise? Evidence, please.

Jasmine shouldn't be on the exec. She passes out everywhere and would just bring shame on us all! Red Lion yesterday evening anyone? EXACTLY!

She was ill... how is that bringing shame on anyone in CF?

Richard Holloway said...

3.21pm you should be ashamed of yourself.
Before making wild accusations on a public blog, you could seek out the facts of what happened. If you are a member of CF I'm ashamed that we are in the same organisation.

Attention seeking perhaps? Sympathy vote?

Anonymous said...

why on earth are people targeting and directly attacking Jasmine? It's awful behaviour. Shouldn't we be commending a member for standing in the elections, let alone a relatively fresh face and one who has battled health issues?

Anonymous said...

And so it begins "battled health issues" next you will be dedicating a medal for bravery. Everyone experiences poor health at one time or another. It shouldn't be a banner under which she deserves electoral victory. How about she actually plans to make a difference? That would be very surprising to see from a self focused candidate like Jasmine.

There's no need to attack jasmine by saying she is self-focused. Contrary to Sarah-Jane, jasmine isn't a career politician and actually has a life outside politics. SJ doesn't. I met jasmine for the first time at we launch last week and she'll be the best thing that ever happened to CF. lets just hope SJ doesn't get reelected because CF will keep going downhill if that happens. #teamjasmine
