For Traditional Conservatism and Unionism
The London Swinton Circle was founded in 1961. Its original membership was composed solely of those who had attended Conservative Party training schools at Swinton Castle in Yorkshire, and who wished to maintain contact with each other through regular meetings in London. Since that time, however, the London Swinton Circle has expanded its membership, and now welcomes members from all backgrounds who support traditional Conservative and Unionist principles.
The Circle holds regular meetings which are addressed by speakers on issues of interest to the Circle. Over the years the Circle has been addressed by members of
the Conservative Party, the United Kingdom Independence Party and from the Ulster Unionist parties. The Circle has also been addressed by a number of authors, journalists, campaigners and other political commentators.
The Circle was addressed by Bob Blackman MP on 15 April. There was a vigorous
wide-ranging discussion covering UK foreign aid, the recent threat from
North Korea, welfare reforms,immigration, the state of the economy, and the 2017 EU referendum. The meeting began with a minute's silence for Baroness Thatcher. Both speaker and members paid tribute to her manifold achievements as a Leader of the British people, a leader who transcended politics.
Forthcoming MeetingsOur next meeting will be in June. Full details will be circulated to members.
