Members and supporters of Central Devon Conservatives flocked to the Fingle Glen Hotel in Tedburn St Mary for the Association’s Annual Constituency Dinner. The sold-out event saw our local MP Mel Stride address the 140 guests and introduce guest speaker Jacob Rees-Mogg MP.
Mel welcomed JRM warmly & lightheartedly said despite him taking his job and car!
JRM said Boris was reinvigorating the Party and a charismatic leader. He was bringing the Party back together, and starting to change the political debate onto new & traditional Tory Party policies & strengths. He went on to say that Brexit needs to be done which removes the impetus for the Brexit Party, however Parliament is saying they will not support the Government and will not let there be a general election.
Association Chairman Councillor Mike Davies said: “It was a really enjoyable and interesting evening. Both Mel and Jacob spoke very well and the Q&A allowed members to quiz Jacob on a variety of topics. It was good to see a real mix of people come to the event, from young university students to long standing members who have supported our Association for many years.”
