EXCLUSIVE: Josh Morgan New North East CF Deputy in Executive Shake-up.

Sources say Josh Morgan (left) will be "Brilliant" as NE Deputy

NORTH EAST Conservative Future have shaken-up their executive and TBG has the full reshuffle before its official release.


Grace Hanson-Eden: Deputy Chairman, Political
Josh Morgan: Deputy Chairman, Membership*
Rebecca Hutchinson: Area Chairman, Northumberland and Tyne and Wear
Lewis Melvin: Area Chairman, County Durham and Cleveland*
Naomi Ferguson: Branches Officer, Rhys Tanner: Universities Officer
Elliot Barker: CPF Chairman
Liam Bones: Social Action Chairman*
Sam Prior: Secretary
Scott Holmes: Executive Member
Jonny Vasey: Executive Member
Keane Duncan: Executive Member, Craig Robinson: Executive Member*, Kelvin Mirfin: Executive Member*, Daniel Dowson: Executive Member*, Alex Bie: Executive Member*, Ben Glaister: Executive Member*

Chairman Issac Duffy, who publicly insists he hasn't made up his mind whether he will restand in any impending CF elections, told TBG: "I'm deeply saddened to see Kevin Wilson stand down as our Deputy Chairman (Membership). I couldn't have asked for a more hardworking, hilarious, and honest friend by my side over the past year. Now he's moved onto greater things & has left to concentrate on his job with Northumberland Conservatives. I wish him the very best of luck and am sure he'll do a brilliant job.

"I'm confident that his replacement, Josh Morgan, will do an outstanding job in the post, and am extremely happy to see Lewis Melvin from South Tees CF take over from Josh as Area Chairman for County Durham and Cleveland. Onwards and upwards!"

Lewis Melvin, what can you say. Barely a member (Less that 3 months) when he was appointed onto the STCF. Supported Will Goodhand for about two hours during the entire election campaign. Somehow made his bed with Chris Hobson and Isaac Duffy. Good Luck to him when the association is shaken up in March, if this is who Duffy has around him you can see why he is stepping down.

Wish I'd followed our departing members in the last few weeks. Their behaviour towards our most vulnerable is atrocious.

This is embarrassing... Exactly why CF is a laughing stock! Not only jobs for the boys, but also a stupid amount of positions? What's special about holding a role when everyone has one? Duffy is Thatcherite with a passion for big government!

Lewis was elected in July 2015. He's done a great job in South Tees and really looking forward to him taking over the area I live in!

Anonymous #2 is right - as a former member of Duffy's 'Executive' it is preposterously bloated and he ignores all other CFers in the region for some bizarre reason. Whenever the notion of having events for all CFers (as the fantastic York Tories do) was floated it has always been shot down.

His Executive (or the few that actually try to be involved) constantly struggle to get stuff done but against Isaac the struggle is in vain.

When it comes to talking about doing stuff, Duffy's your man. When it comes to actually doing it, I couldn't think of anyone worse.

Anonymous #1 must be Jade Smith, a disgraced former member who did nothing but cause bother when she was around who I believe has now defected to the Liberal Democrats.

NECF actually did lots for Will Goodhand during the General Election campaign, and will continue to do more to further the cause - if Will wants to stand for Teesside Mayor when the position is created then NECF (including Melvin) will no doubt go down and help him or whoever the candidate is to win.

Unsure how defecting to the Liberal Democrats will help Teesside Conservatives out.

Anonymous #3 must be Duffy himself, as no-one else actually cares about comments on this website. He also happens to live in South Tees - although even if he didn't he'd say that he did in order to defend his bloated Executive.

Who cares? Seriously. NECF is totally irrelevant.
