'Radical and Fresh Ideas' - Wilson Stands for Tory Youth Northern Partnership Chairman.

Matt Wilson has sensationally thrown his hat onto the ring and announced his candidacy for the Tory Youth Northern Partnership Chairman role, tbg can reveal.

The selection for the chairmanship will take place this Saturday in York at 3pm. Anyone who is a Tory member 30 years old and under and lives in the North East, the North West or Yorkshire and Humber can attend the AGM and cast a ballot.

Matt Wilson is known for his outspoken views and has recently been the victim of a vicious smear campaign by former Labour colleagues over cannabis tweeting.

Wilson exclusively told tbg - "I want to shape a northern partnership that is not afraid to implement radical campaign strategies and to debate radical policies."
