The Wells Conservative Association are delighted to offer the opportunity to hear the Rt. Hon. Esther McVey talk about her political philosophy of Blue Collar Conservatism.
Originally from Liverpool, in 2010 she became the first and only Conservative MP on Merseyside since 1997, and from 2012 to 2015 she joined the Government, becoming Minister for Employment and was made a Privy Counsellor. In 2017 she was elected as the MP for Tatton, before being promoted to the Deputy Chief whip role in October that year. In January 2018 she became the Secretary of State for the Department for Work and Pensions before resigning in November 2018 when she was unable to support the draft Withdrawal Agreement of the UK from the European Union.
Following the election of Boris Johnson as the new Leader of the Conservative Party, in July 2019 Esther re-joined the Government as the Minister of Housing within the Ministry of Housing, Local Government and Communities. She left that role in February 2020 and is now a backbench MP. Esther will talk to us about the importance of Blue Collar conservatism as an ideology for the party to represent, and how to capture the Blue Collar vote.
