EXCLUSIVE: Fears Over Fake CF Form Data Theft.

Conservative Future Members have been directed to a bogus form

AN OUTPOURING of outrage from members of University Conservative societies has begun over what appears to have been a bogus form set up to harvest data under the guise of distributing freshers’ packs, TBG can reveal.

It now seems that this was not sanctioned by Party HQ, despite the SurveyMonkey form claiming otherwise, with an official form on the party’s own website having been set up at the end of last week.

There is furious speculation as to where the data has gone, but there is widespread concern that it may be abused by third parties either electioneering for themselves in the upcoming CF elections or organisations only loosely affiliated to the Conservative party. Either way, it is understood that there are widespread calls for an investigation in to where the data from the bogus form has gone and whose possession it is now in.

Speaking exclusively to TBG, a senior source from Conservative Future said: "It’s a disgrace that this has been allowed to happen. Members fill these forms in on the basis of trust and it’s important that we work hard to maintain that trust. Given how data has been abused in the past, the party needs to have an investigation in to who has handled this data and demand that it is handed over immediately whilst prohibiting its further use."

Zac Goldsmith Lavishes Praise on London CF Leader Springthorpe.

LONDON CF supremo Luke Springthorpe has been praised by Zac Goldsmith MP, the bookies odds on favourite to be the Tory nominee for Mayor of London, TBG can reveal.

Speaking about London CF’s vital contribution to the 2015 general election campaign, he said: "Conservative Future is a powerful force in London, and many of the successes on election night last May are because of the dedication and hard-work shown by you (Luke) and your team. CF played a significant role in both my 2010 and 2015 General Election campaigns and I have no doubt London CF will be playing a vital role during the Mayoral campaign next May."

This comes just weeks after Gavin Barwell, MP for Croydon Central, was equally complimentary towards London CF for its role in ensuring he kept his seat which he went on to win by 106 votes.

London CF hosted a hugely successful event with Zac Goldsmith and Andrew Boff in the marginal GLA seat of Ealing, to give members a chance to quiz the respective candidates following a short campaigning stint. The event went down a storm with 100 members turning up to hear from the candidates and tuck into a delicious barbecue.

Zac Goldsmith was particularly pleased with how the day went, saying: "It was a superb event and I’d like to thank the organisers, especially Luke Springthorpe, Paul Abbott (CEO of Conservative Way Forward) and their teams for all their hard work in putting it on. Campaign events like this will be vital if we want to hold City Hall next May and build on Boris Johnson’s legacy."

CF Exec Members Clamour for High Profile Meetings.

Divide and conquer?

CONCERNS have been raised by activists over the "noticeable" divide in strategy between a member of the National Executive Committee and what appears to be other key players and the wider regional council.

The online fiasco which has been edited, saw CF's Deputy Political Chairman talk of an exclusive meeting with a high profile Tory MP, causing some to raise eyebrows.

One insider close to the Tory CF Exec commented: "It's important that people don't confuse genuine meetings with bumping into an MP in your place of work for 2 minutes - that's not really what one would call a meeting. This is getting a little bit silly."

Andy Burnham 'Does His Nut' at TBG Infiltration.

LABOUR Leadership Candidate Andy Burnham has today sensationally "done his nut" after learning about the Jeremy Corbyn Tory Infiltration Debacle on The Blue Guerilla yesterday.

Michael Dugher, Mr Burnham's Campaign Chairman suggested not enough was being done to address the issue and called for an "urgent meeting" with all the other Leadership candidates.

New regulations allow members of the public to sign up to vote as a "registered supporter" for £3.

Mr Burnham's team have written to Labour's General Secretary claiming that a "Conservative Blog has infiltrated the contest" and that "registered supporters could include several thousand Tory infiltrators."

Mr Dugher also suggested there could be a legal challenge if the problem is not resolved saying:

"We are also concerned that given the party's limited resources and the effort required to investigate applicants, this could result in the integrity of the contest being called into question, and the outcome subject to legal challenge."

Tory Youth Chairman's Diary: Conference and Freshers Week.

IT'S been a while since the General Election and I wanted to give you all an update on what has been going on in CF recently.

Last weekend saw London CF and Conservative Way Forward host Zac Goldsmith and Andrew Boff in Ealing after a well-attended campaigning session, followed by a BBQ. Thank you to everyone who came out and well done to London CF for putting on such a great event!

Also, congratulations to North East CF’s very own Isaac Duffy on being selected as the Conservative council candidate for Hart Ward in Hartlepool. He has been the leading light in branch development since he became NE Regional Chairman last year. When he took office, his region had four CF branches, now it has fourteen, with another launching in September. Fantastic stuff from the North East.

The start of the new university term will soon be upon us all, as will the very important Freshers Week (I wince at how long it has been since mine). I have had a lot of queries regarding Freshers Packs over the past few weeks. To clarify, the form for ordering packs will be available soon and will be circulated to your CF Regional Chairmen. If you have any issues with ordering packs for your branch then please email me at Chairman@ConservativeFuture.com

Looking further ahead to October is Party Conference 2015! If you haven’t already signed up for Conference you can do so here: https://conservativepartyconference.com/registration There will be lots of great CF events going on in Manchester and further details will be announced shortly.

I would encourage all CF members to get involved with the ongoing Party Review that Lord Feldman and Rob Halfon MP are conducting at the moment. There are many review events taking place around the country over the next few months and it is a real opportunity for you to have a say in the future of the Party. For further information on this please contact Stephen Canning, Deputy Chair Political at Stephen.Canning@ConservativeFuture.com

This weekend I will be in Maidstone with Kent Conservative Future and South East Conservative Future. There is a key by-election in Fant and if you are available please come down and support the great candidate, former Kent CF Chairman Matt Boughton! You can sign up to attend the event HERE.

EXCLUSIVE: Secret Emails Show Tory Party Member Infiltrates Corbyn Campaign Team.

FIRST he brought down Mike Hancock, then he infiltrated Ukip and today TBG can exclusively reveal that Geoff Brooking has, for the last few weeks at least, been infiltrating Labour.

Top secret Corbyn campaign emails seen by TBG show that the Portsmouth Tory has not just been following the Labour Leadership Contest but is right at the heart of it.

His own blog, The Portsmouth Guerilla, has even recruited hundreds of Tory activists to vote in the same way he did today in the Leadership Contest, which was Jeremy Corbyn for Leader and Tom Watson for Deputy.

Brooking told TBG:

"This is what you call REALLY hammering the nail in Labour's coffin!"

"Once Corbyn is elected all hell is going to break loose and I'm just gonna sit back and laugh."

"Considering the damage they did to Britain it's what I call pay-back time."

"It couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of people."

EXCLUSIVE: Rumours of CF Demotion Cause Upset & Panic.

RUMOURS are flying of the supposed DEMOTION of Conservative Future (CF) from within the voluntary party, TBG can sensationally reveal.

TBG has been briefed by a number of sources working inside the party that reveal CF may now take up residence in the ‘Friends Of’ zone, overseen by an entirely different department within the main party.

The grouping, which is typically used for country affiliations like Conservative Friends of Azerbaijan, would demonstrate a big set back for the once highly influential youth grouping.

This has form, TBG has prevoiusly reported on senior Tories disrespecting what is undoubtedly the most hardworking & enthusiastic wing of the main voluntary party and indeed likening it to a 'Conservatives friends of' type organisation. And then promtly attempting to squirm out of it.

At this stage it is unclear what action the current National Executive are taking to defend CF's current position, but it is understood they are fully aware and have yet to comment.

One insider said: "It’s sad to see CF treated in this way. Where are our executive when we need them? They can’t let this happen."

Another told TBG: "I’m just hoping this won’t change the current state of play. Does this mean I'll have to join two organisations now?"

TBG will be investigating further.

Cameron Hails Local CF Campaign Efforts.

PM David Cameron was guest speaker at Witney election victory party recently.

The election celebration was held at The Blue Boar in the heart of the Witney constituent was attended by local members and Conservative Future members from across the country.

Liam Walker, Chairman of Witney Conservative Future told TBG: "We were delighted to host the Prime Minister for this special event and to welcome so many friends who did so much for the election campaign in their local areas."

"The election campaign was a long hard fight and I'm pleased Witney Conservative Future played our part campaigning in target seats across the country. Working hard locally on David Cameron's campaign and especially in our nearest target seat helping Nicola Blackwood who we are pleased increased her majority from 176 to 9,582!"

"The event was a real success with everyone enjoying themselves. We hope to see many familiar faces and new ones at our future events - starting with our Summer BBQ with Alex Chalk MP on Sunday 23rd August."

The Prime Minister met with guests whilst enjoying a pint of Hobgoblin beer, according to sources, which happens to be from the local brewery in Witney Town Centre. In his speech the PM thanked Witney CF for all that they done in his own election campaign and a far in other seats. He then took questions from guests which ranged from obesity, Russia and climate change.

After the event some guests stayed for some top nosh at the Blue Boar before heading to the bar until the early hours of the very morning.
