Exclusive: Yorkshire Backs Paterson For CF Chairman

#ThingsElliottSays can confirm that the Yorkshire region of CF are backing Alexandra Paterson to the national chairman of Conservative Future.

A document has been sent to #ThingsElliottSays laying out Yorkshire and Humber's plan for the CF elections. In it Yorkshire CF show there support for Alexandra Paterson and 'anyone else who can bring mass campaigning to our marginal seats'. Alexandra is well known for her campaigning efforts. Because she lives in Manchester Alexandra is one of those who has had to travel the furthest when comes to being on a Road Trip, but despite this she is a very well known face in the hard-core Road Trippers.

#ThingsElliottSays spoke to Yorkshire CF chairman Chris Rowell about the document he was sent. Chris confirmed the existence of the document and also told #ThingsElliottSays that "Yorkshire and Humber CF shares similar concerns and frustrations with many in CF about the current state of affairs and would happily support anyone who can help us work together to a victory in 2015. Alexandra is at this moment the only person we would have confidence in to get us the activists to win our marginal seats. I really want Ed Balls to lose in Morley and Outwood."

    Chris Rowell is a gentleman and a scholar.

  4. This is news to me. Chris would not make an endorsement on behalf of the region surely?

  5. Making an endorsement on behalf of the region? That's a very Philip Smith thing to do...
