"Mr Chairman and CF Exec
On Behalf on the
It was not long ago that both you and I were at school and went to lessons entitled PSHE (Personal, Social, Health, Education) where we were taught about responsible drinking from the early days of secondary school. This to me is more than enough to make young people understand the dangers of binge drinking and allows them to make decisions after this education.
I am also rather annoyed, as are some of the student life team that we were not consulted on this issue/idea in anyway. Then again if I have learnt one thing about some members of this NME in the last two weeks, it is that it does what it wants, regardless of the membership view. I am of course referring to the reforms, but that’s for another letter.
We as the Conservative Party need to be getting into these schools and selling our message, not preaching to young people about what they should and shouldn’t do. Conservatives want to give young people more control over their lives, not attempt to control them completely.
Also I think it rather looks down on young people. Most young people understand the dangers and do not go out and binge drinking. Most young people drink in moderation and are sensible. So this idea once again is targeted at that small minority that don’t understand and I some cases just don’t care. This Labour Government punish and attempt to control to many of those good honest young people, when they need to really be looking at way of tackling anti-social behaviour.
Conservative Future in schools needs to be going to School Councils and Citizenship classes with our PPC, MPs and Councillors and selling the Conservatives message. Encouraging young people to vote when they turn 18. Let them know that the Conservative party is on their side, not against them.
Most young people do not connect with Politicians they don’t understand them or feel that they are in touch with the issues that are important to them. We need listen to our young people not preach, they are fed up of that!
It is time to stand up and listen to young peoples views before we preach to them. Yes it is important to make people aware of the dangers, but we need to win their trust before they listen to us.
It is time to listen and let young people make their decisions. Moderate control not complete!
National Student Life – Vice Chairman (Schools) Student Life Schools Officer
Note from Peter –
P.S. – I feel its is only fair to inform you that I was one who talked to *****(Tory Bear) about this last night. I was told about this in my role as VC for Schools by Patrick. It was in confidence but I felt that this was an important issue that needed to be brought to CFs attention. Not hidden away like some thing have been in recent weeks. So you can stop your Witch Hunt on this one!
P.S.S. – While I am taking up your time. I would like you know that Hillingdon CF is holding it AGM tomorrow and will be having it own vote on these reforms. Once we know the results (which I expect to be against) we will discuss the next step and actions. My branch will be taking a lead to get more branches to ballot its membership on this issue and present the results to you."
You gotta fight for your right to party.

Whatever happens at the NME meeting tomorrow people have to keep sight of the bigger issues here. If we devoted half the energy and time spent whipping up things up in to frenzy over reforms to campaigning, Conservative Future would be unstoppable.
Yes these reforms may not pass, we'll just have to wait and see but in the mean time lets not lose focus on the ultimate goal. Sticking to Labour where it hurts.
Another busy weekend for TB so blogging will be light. There will be a full round of whatever happens when TB knows and has a minute to jot it all down.
Tickets will be available for TB's party at the Disraeli Club drinks thing tonight. Intensive media training tomorrow and then a 21st somewhere three hours train ride away in the middle of nowhere... three weekends in a row.
TB doesn't want to think about his liver...

When TB sees those ruddy red cheeks, blonde floppy hair, his knees go weak...
Arriving a characteristically 40 minutes late, BJ split the room like some sort of 20th century Moses... Half of the hacks instantly dived on the "devilishly handsome man," while the other slightly cooler CF players held back munching on the canapes. They were clearly way too sound to let on that their idol had just brushed past their artfully distressed jeans and jacket combo.
Hearts were fluttering throughout the room, a small queue of pretty young CF girles formed whenever the poor lad stopped. Fighting the heat of a packed basement - or "dungeon" as he called it, Boris ripped off the tie off as he entered - he claimed later to be dressing down to meet George Osborne for supper.
A bloody good night seems to be had by all. In the post Boris haze, TB couldn't help laugh at the ever keen ABB corner "the second most important man in the room" for one of her no doubt intense chats.
For those girlies left standing the late arrival of MarClar was almost too much. The famous candidate, interns in tow, was cursing the fact he missed Boris for the second time that night- having crashed the GLA Summer Party under the guise of still being CF Chairman, (you better get on to that Rock!?) It didn't stop him handing out his own branded merchandise though... TB has yet to see a more dreadful business card...
The pen will come in handy though...
