Pride's Purge

With all the pages of copy that have been filed in the media about the Tory bullying scandal, it’s surprising how little has been written about the organisation at the heart of the bullying allegations – Conservative Way Forward.

CWF is a VERY important and influential organisation within the Tory Party. It is seen as the gatekeeper of Thatcher’s legacy. Here is its official list of presidents and patrons – a rollcall of Thatcherite luminaries, beginning with Thatcher herself:

FOUNDING PRESIDENT
The Rt Hon Baroness Thatcher of Kesteven LG OM FRS
HONORARY VICE-PRESIDENTS
Christopher Chope OBE MP
The Rt Hon Dr Liam Fox MP
The Rt Hon Greg Hands MP
The Rt Hon Lord Hague of Richmond FRSL
The Rt Hon Lord Parkinson of Carnforth
The Rt Hon Lord Tebbit of Chingford CH
PARLIAMENTARY COUNCIL
Sir Gerald Howarth MP – Chairman
James Cleverly MP – Deputy Chairman
Conor Burns MP
Rt. Hon. Greg Hands MP
