Conservative Party Chair offers support to local JDC campaigners

Posted on: December 7, 2008

This December has been a particularly depressing month for campaigners we have just had the  United Nations Finance for Development conference, in Doha, Qatar, but with no positive outcome. I fear that  leaders have abandoned the hoped for reform of the
World Bank and IMF.There is no mention either of tackling tax loop holes or debt problems in the poorest countries.

But then whilst being attacked by a particularly virilent virus infection and  feeling very “down” I recieved this :-

Dear Audrey

Please rest assured that these issues are being considered
as part of our detailed policy review which we hope to bring
forward a Green Paper at some point in the New Year.

When this is complete; it will be available to share
with campaigners. This is certainly something that
is being taken extremely seriously in the Conservative Party,
which is why it is being considered in great depth.

Yours sincerely


Caroline Spelman, MP for Meriden

Chairman of the Conservative party and some one who has been listening
to local JDC activists for the last ten years it was tremendous boost.
Then shortly afterwards i heard the words of Baroke Obarma with new insight
“Yes we can “! I have to say thank you America! Are we entering anew wave of political activism in the uk too?
That JDC party in December really does have lots to celebrate after all and i am well on the way to recovery.
Do you feel optimistic about 2009 and the debt campaign here and aboard? Leave your comments and suggestion about the way forward for ALL political parties to be involved.

Well done Brum! As ever you impress us in Manch. (and the rest of the world), not only with your technical publicity, but your real impact and contact with policy makers.
