'Capable' Springthorpe Lands Backing From Two Top London Universities.

TORY YOUTH London Chairman candidate Luke Springthorpe has received the backing from two top universities in the Capital for his bid in to lead London Conservative Future (CF), TBG can reveal.

LSE Conservative Society and BPP Conservative Future London have both declared for Springthorpe.

A senior BPP figure told TBG - "BPP are pleased to announce our support for Luke Springthorpe as London CF Chairman. Having worked with him on delivering the London Conservative Future conference, it is clear that he is someone who is able to lead on delivering top events that are both fun and constructive, as well as an ability to attract speakers of the highest calibre.

"We believe he has the experience, vision and ideas to help support branches like our grow and expand and we are pleased to endorse him for that reason."

While sources at LSE say - "We're officially endorsing Luke Springthorpe for London CF Chairman. He is very capable and immensely motivated. We believe he is the candidate that will deliver the best change for LSESU Tories."

London candidate Luke Springthorpe commented - "It's great to have the backing of students across London, who I want to see play a far greater role in the running of London Conservative Future. It also comes down to how we support them in what they do though. That's why I'd hold 'open' London CF executive meetings and rotate around different campuses, support CF members seeking election to the NUS and work with CF Young Professionals & professional trainers to run interview training sessions and CV workshops."
