“A little over forty years ago in a small village in Oxfordshire, I signed up to be a member of the Conservative Party.
I did it because it was the party that had the ideas to build a better Britain. It understood the hard work and discipline necessary to see them through.
And it had at its heart a simple promise that spoke to me, my values and my aspirations: that each new generation in our country should be able to build a better future. That each generation should live the British Dream.
And that dream is what I believe in.
