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 welcomed Dr Liam Fox MP to its meeting on 20 October. Dr Fox
discussed issues of the National Debt, EU referendum, Russia, ISIS, and Conservative prospects at the next General Election.
On the 6 November the Circle was addressed by Christopher Chope MP. The discussion was wide ranging but focused on justice, migration issues and concerns, and also highlighted the absence of a general discussion of ideas within the Conservative Party as previously used to take place.
The Circle was hosted by Owen Paterson MP at its meeting on 19 November 2014 . The subjects discussed ranged across the domestic political and international spectrum. Following an initial address there followed a lively question and answer session.
Forthcoming MeetingsOur next meeting will be in the New Year. Full details will be circulated to members.
Members may also be interested in attending the Bruges Group conference on 22 November, entitled Restoring Self-Government to Britain
