Conservative Party Chairman Welcomed to Lincolnshire
Cllr. Mrs. Rachel Hubbard, Conservative (Lincoln Bracebridge Division), who is the County Chairman will welcome Baroness Warsi with representatives of the constituencies of the Lincolnshire area, which includes both North and North East Lincolnshire as well as the County of Lincolnshire.
The visit comes swiftly, following the defection of Roger Helmer MEP to the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP), which followed an acrimonious period between Mr. Helmer and Baroness Warsi, waged publicly in the press, over his resignation and the succession of Rupert Matthews. The Chairman can undoubtedly expect the forthright views of local activists to be expressed to her this evening. At the 1922 Committee, of Conservative Members of Parliament, last week it is reported that Baroness Warsi received a hostile reception - and not just from the usual suspects.
It is believed that the Party Chairman will present an award to the Lincolnshire Conservative Policy Forum for the response to the NHS policy paper circulated in 2011.
