The times they are a’changing. Just last month a row broke out within the Conservative party over the winner of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here. It wasn’t so much a difference of view over who should have won but over what the party should do about the winner.
The winner – Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo, who first made her name on Made in Chelsea – is a Tory supporter who kindly volunteered to utilise her million followers for the party. Alas brains at CCHQ weren’t impressed. Last month, Tory chiefs blocked Toff from becoming a poster girl for the Conservatives over concerns she’s ‘too posh to win over Labour supporters’.
However, the MP for Mansfield takes a different view. With a new Tory party chairman – and a host of new ‘vice-chairmen’ a new approach is already being adopted. Ben Bradley is the new vice-chairman for Youth and this morning he met briefly with Toff in Parliament, after she popped in to record a short Winston Churchill film for This Morning.
Wait until the old guard hear about this…
