South Oxfordshire Conservatives welcome election of Boris Johnson as Leader of The Conservative Party

South Oxfordshire Conservative Association welcome the election of Boris Johnston as the new leader of The Conservative Party and the nation’s new Prime Minister.
Mr Johnson was elected by a huge majority by Conservative party members.

Caroline Newton, South Oxfordshire Conservative Association Chair said “I am greatly encouraged that, following an open and intense leadership contest, the Party has given such a strong mandate to Mr Johnson.

We are now looking forward to a new, energised and optimistic Conservative administration which, as well as delivering on the 2016 referendum, will seek to govern in the interests of the whole of the United Kingdom and to create a fairer Britain for everyone.

We’re particularly delighted, of course, that our new Prime Minister has such close links with South Oxfordshire, having previously served for 7 years as the MP for this Constituency. Many people here know him from that time - and I am sure that his positive message will resonate with local people, in contrast to the gloomy netherworlds inhabited by Labour and the Liberal Democrat’s.”

Kevin Bulmer, Deputy Chairman Political for South Oxfordshire added “We are pleased to see Boris Johnson doing so well and I am sure he will be welcomed warmly by party members when he comes back to visit his old constituency of South Oxfordshire”

With a new leader, there has never been a better time to join The Conservative Party. So if you want to get more involved locally then please head to
