On Wednesday the 14th march 4 of the York Tories headed down to Westminster to the YBF Parliamentary Rally. The day was fantastic, Phil, Joe, Sarah and Dan all felt amazing, walking into Westminster, getting a pass and making themselves commutable in committee room 12. The 4 hours of speakers proved to be tiring, but incredibly informative. Particular highlights included Eric Pickles MP, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Graham Brady MP, Chairman of the 1922 Committee, Sajid Javid MP, PPS to the Chancellor and Nigel Evans MP, Deputy Speaker of the House of Commons. Once the conference had finished, we met up with ex-chairman, Felix Bungay and attended the latter part of an IEA conference. This had nothing to do with the free food and wine on offer at all! A day in Westminster and an evening in the IEA is truly an amazing experience. A fantastic day finishing on a high note of Mac Donalds and a long journey home!
