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.
Sean Gabb, of the Libertarian Alliance addressed the Circle on 24 January. He spoke to the title 'We are All Guilty: The Need for a Positive Conservative Vision'. Details of his speech can be found on the Libertarian Alliance blogsite.
On 25 February the Circle was addressed by Rupert Matthews on the subject of 101 facts about the European Union. He highlighted the dangers of the EU's participatory democracy programme, the antithesis of representative democracy, condemned the EU's policies towards the Ukraine in the current crisis and discussed the implications of both a YES and a NO vote on September 18 (Scottish Referendum). A lively Q&A session followed.
Forthcoming MeetingsOur next meeting will be in April. Full details will be circulated to members.
