William Hague comes to Croydon
17/11/2009 23:59:00

 
 

This evening, William Hague came to Croydon Central to support my campaign.

He was interviewed by Kirsty Whalley from The Croydon Guardian; then spoke to an audience of pupils, parents and staff at Trinity School; then was the guest of honour at a fundraising event attended by nearly 300 people, where he gave a fantastic speech.

I had the privilege of working for William when he was Leader of the Conservative Party. Virtually single-handedly, he kept the Conservative Party in existence during one of the most difficult periods in its history - and stopped Tony Blair from scrapping the pound, for which the whole country has reason to thank him. If the Conservatives win the next General Election, he will make an outstanding Foreign Secretary.

I was particularly pleased to hear William offer an olive branch to Andrew Pelling (about 15 seconds into the second clip). Andrew has given great service to the Conservative Party over many years. Where he to stand as an Independent, it would be a sad end to that association - and the only people who would benefit would be the Labour Party.
