Alexandra Paterson

THE BATTLE for Conservative Future (CF) is well underway with University College London (UCL) Conservative Society being the first to come out in support of Alexandra Paterson for CF's top job, TBG can exclusively reveal.

Louisa Townson, President of UCL Tories, told TBG - "Under Cooper, CF has seen the phenomenal growth of university CF branches. But now it's time to use the awesome manpower and passion of the university branches to fight and win in 2015.

"I believe Alex Paterson and her team will support and engage the University activists, getting everyone out campaigning for a Conservative majority. They have already proved this through RoadTrip2015 after all! It's for this reason UCL will be backing Team Paterson."

TBG understands that it's being regarded as an essential endorsement as critically their "hundreds" of members are definitely in the Merlin system, the Conservative Party's database used for sending out ballots and collecting information for internal use.
