New Tory Youth Leader says Becoming a Conservative was an 'Act of Teenage Rebellion'.

Newly elected Conservative Future (CF) Chairman Oliver Cooper has told a local paper in London that his aim is to represent the local Camden community and that becoming a Tory was an "Act of teenage rebellion".

Cooper told a local Camden reporter - "I’d love to represent the local area – that is my ambition."

Oliver also said supporting the Conservatives these days - "Goes against the grain. You will be looked at strangely by your friends and mocked."

CF Chairman Oliver Cooper revealed that growing up his parents were "strongly on the left of the spectrum" and sensationally admitted he believed the government's action on benefits to be "kind".

"I completely reject the accusation that this is in any way brutal, but actually kind in allowing people to get back into jobs" - Cooper said.
