Better Together

The campaign to keep our United Kingdom is the most important we could ever fight.

Better Together was an amazing group. The atmosphere at campaign HQ in Edinburgh was electrifying.

I've met so many lovely people and the sense of shared purpose was something I've never experienced before. I'll remember it for the rest of my life.

We all owe a huge thank-you to everyone who worked so hard for this great result.  In particular, I would like to thank our own Rob Manning who has been tireless in his support for the Union and led the way in supporting our Scottish friends.

Now we must continue to work together for a better Scotland and a stronger, happier UK.

Statement on Situation in Manchester

In the wake of the recent events in Gaza there have been reports of boycotts and attacks directed against local businesses owned by members of the Jewish community. Manchester Conservatives believe that everyone in our city is entitled to live free from the threat of intimidation and violence. We do not think it is ever acceptable for groups to target individuals on the basis of their race and religion. We therefore condemn these boycotts and attacks which have no place in a civilised Britain.
