Westminster beckons him

We’re pleased to see that Conservative Party vice-chairman Tariq Ahmed has made it through to the final five, as the Tories pick their candidate for Beckenham.

The Wimbledon councillor took over from Sayeeda Warsi as vice-chair with responsibility for the cities after Warsi was promoted to the House of Lords.

We caught up with Ahmed at the Conservative conference in Manchester in October, and he also spoke at Operation Black Vote’s Black History Month celebration event in the same month.

Simon Woolley of OBV stated: “In many ways Tariq Ahmed represents a very bright future for the Conservative Party.

“He is young, dynamic, passionate about ensuring that Britain can be the very best it can be, not only  in business, but also as a decent nation that is a moral beacon way beyond our shores.”

Ahmed is up against Jo-Anne Nadler, Sally Marks, Lynne Hack and Col Bob Stewart. We wish him well.

  1. Another good man is also in at Rochdale.

    A COMMUNITY cohesion co-ordinator will represent the Conservatives in the Rochdale parliamentary constituency at next year’s General Election.

    Mudasir Dean, who was born in Bolton, has worked across the north west region in a variety of jobs including varied career ranging from local Government to business links in Greater Manchester.

  2. John, send us some details about Mudasir, we’d love to talk to him.

    Our organisation is dedicated to supporting and promoting good BME political candidates from all political parties-other than the obvious .

    • This is extremely positive news; the diversity of candidates coming from all political parties is welcomed; the contributions we all make will aspire others to come forward and make change happen.
