Ensuring a Conservative Majority Government in the 2017 General Election
Who we are:
UWCA are the university’s foremost centre-right movement and the most active political society on campus. We bring together like-minded people to not only discuss politics and promote conservative values, but also to enjoy a host of socials, speaker events and debates.
There has never been a better time to join UWCA.
We are aptly placed to help shape the future of our country so if you've ever thought of getting involved but never got round to it, now is the time to put those canvassing shoes on and come and help us to win this General Election. No experience is required, merely enthusiasm and a few spare afternoons.
This is not an election or a time in British politics that you want to look back on and not have taken part in!
So whether you’re a pavement-pounding Tory, a keen debater, want to meet leading Conservative figures, or just want to make new friends, then pop along to one of our events and say hello!
What we do:
As one of the most active and fast-growing political societies in the United Kingdom, we have been fortunate enough to host a number of thought provoking and influential speakers in recent years; including Sir Gerald Howarth MP, Nadhim Zahawi MP, Crispin Blunt MP, Mark Littlewood, Peter Botting, and Jonathan Isaby. And this year is certainly no exception: with the likes of Andrea Leadsom MP, Sam Bowman and John Bercow paying us a visit!
We arrange private tours of the Houses of Parliament for our members, with the opportunity to meet and have a drink with MPs!
Whether it’s meeting to watch Prime Minister’s Questions, taking on the Lib-Dems at Coalition Laser Tag or simply heading to the pub, our social secs put on a tonne of socials for members throughout the year.
Whether its retaining our unbeaten status when we take on Warwick Labour at football, or training for a 10km run, we put on a number of fundraisers throughout the year so we can contribute to a good cause.
Over the next academic year, UWCA are raring to get our teeth sunk into a number of campaigns off campus. With the West Midlands Mayoral Election on the horizon, there is plenty of opportunity to support the party both in the local area and slightly further afield; not to mention the General Election on the 8th June.
We have always been an active campaigning society, and over the years have built relationships with a number of MPs. In the run up to the 2015 General Election, we campaigned in more than eight marginal constituencies; helping Chris White increase his majority in Warwick and Leamington and supporting Julian Knight to win his seat in Solihull – we were even mentioned in his acceptance speech!
This is not a time in British politics that you want to look back on and not have taken part in! If you've ever thought of getting involved but never got round to it, now is the time to put those canvassing shoes on and come and help us to win this General Election. No experience is required, merely enthusiasm and a few spare afternoons.
