As vice-president of the Stirlingshire Conservative Union I must say that this is an exciting time to be a Conservative. With approval ratings at 41%, it is important that we keep our foot on the gas.
Thus it is the core purpose for Stirling’s Conservative Union to campaign on the issues that matter. Whether it is our active support to safe the post office network, or our desire to see an economically competent government. It is central for us to campaign, be involved.
If you visit the Conservative Party website you will find articles on current Conservative campaigns: ‘Support our Small Shops’, ‘Fair play on women’s pay’. There are more to these than the gimmicky titles, because these issues matter.And as young Conservatives it is we who aught to be out campaigning. Therefore this is exactly what this student Conservative Union is all about. Being active on the issues we all feel strongly about.
In this vein we actively push for a reduction on the UK reliance on fossil fuels. We seek to present a positive argument for the Union of Britain.
So it is worth becoming involved with us. And let me tell you that we don’t demand that you are a card carrying party member. If you don’t wish to partake in any formal debates that we hold, internal and external to the university, don’t worry. You can be active in other ways, local leafleting, or merely sharing with us your ideas and thoughts.
I believe that, in my capacity as vice-president our conservative union is inclusive, not exclusive. In the words of our leader David Cameron, “we have become the vehicle for change”. It doesn’t matter if you’re black or white, male or female; we stand on these policies and campaigns for everyone.

Good to see the old girl passing the torch. Or the little wooden man, at any rate.
