EXCLUSIVE: CF National Executive Member Slams Cooper in Email Exchange.

CONSERVATIVE FUTURE Regional Chairmen have had an email exchange which expresses their unhappiness at the relationship between themselves and the National Executive.

The respondent Regional College (RC) Member seems to have received many complaints last night from regional chairmen at the breakdown in communication between the regions and the national executive.

After the barrage of emails the Tory RC Member sensationally revealed - "Oli made it very clear that he wanted to manage to relationship between the Regional Chairmen and the National Executive. He said he would call on my support as and when it was needed.

"I get the feeling that these conversations have not been taking place and therefore you all (rightly so) feel that there is a disconnect between the National Executive and the Regions. I was under the impression that he (Oliver Cooper) was filling this disconnect himself.

"Please could you all come back to me as to the level of contact Oli has had with you. I am deeply concerned that I have been holding off making contact with the Regional Chairmen with safeguard the Oli has been initiating conversations when, in reality, he has not."

An anonymous source told tbg that they disagreed with the email content saying - "It implies Oliver is not doing his job which I believe is far from the case."

Is this Manning power grabbing?

James Morton obviously. What is the point of redacting his name if you leave his job title in the email?

bollocks to the Regionals - the do and mean nothing. It is individual branches which do all the groundwork and Oli is pretty much the ONLY NE member to have ANY contact with them.

This is just more wendyhouse politics among the wannabees while Oli puts in the actual work with those who matter - the members.

I hold no qualms in discussing this in an open forum and thank TBG for being so prompt in reporting it.

I have indeed asked all of the Regional Chairmen to feedback their thoughts on the National Chairman and the Executive as a whole. I see it as a sensible conduit through which the Regional Chairmen can hold the National Chairman and Executive, including myself, to account.

Today saw a fairly blunt and very honest email exchange which has supported my suspicions. The follow up to this will be a full disclosure given that my request for confidentiality from the Regional Chairmen has been broken.

I look forward to keeping everyone in the loop and as ever I am happy to discuss, do email me at

Best wishes

Cooper has had zero contact with Northern Ireland Conservative Future, even though he did opportunistically choose to fly over to Belfast to pander to members shortly after Robinson withdrew from the CF election.

NICF's only contact with the National Executive is through Robinson.
