So last night I made probably one of the wisest investments of my adult life and bought Friendship.
I am now a friend of the Conservative Party. I can officially now be called a Tory.
My new mate Dave, wrote to me straight afterwards:
Firstly, let me offer you a very warm welcome to the Conservatives.
I’m delighted you have taken the decision to help us turn Britain around by
becoming a Friend of the Party. Your membership card will be posted out to you
shortly (within the next month).
As a Friend, you have a vital role to play. The Conservative-led Government
has many challenges ahead before – and including – the next set of elections,
but with your help we can continue to make the case for Conservative values.
The more who join us, the more we can achieve – so please email everyone you
know who would be interested in becoming a Friend of the Conservatives. Together, we can build
a better future for Britain.
Thanks in advance for all your help,
I even get a membership card, for £1. How cool is that? And I can attend party conference now (assuming I can afford the admission). Before you pooh-pooh that idea, there are some hotties that attend party conference.
I am not a fully-fledged member so I cannot vote Boris in but as there will not be a leadership election when Davey-boy wins the Tory majority in 2015, I do not have to worry about this yet.
Given that membership of the Conservative party has plummeted so much in recent years that they won’t dare release the membership figures, I think this is a wise move to engage their potential supporters and grow their base in the coming years.
Here is another one of my new friends:
