The first universities freshers activities start next week (lock up your daughters). In advance of this Tory vice-chairman for youth issues, Justine Greening, has revealed the Conservative Future pin-up boy and urged young adults to get involved shaping the Conservative Party for the future.
In a series of posters, postcards and badges, the Conservative Higher Education spokesman, Boris Johnson, is featured urging students to get involved and make a difference. Launching this year's materials, Justine said:‘Students seem to like Boris Johnson, I think they like the fact that he's pretty upfront, he's amusing to talk to and he's very witty - and he's higher education spokesman, so who better to put on our posters?’There are a number of serious messages that the Party is taking to students this year including David Cameron’s Environment and Global Poverty campaigns.‘Students may not always see themselves as political, but they do have strong opinions about a variety of issues. I want our party to be able to represent a number of these issues, and that is why we are finding new ways of not only listening to peoples’ concerns but also getting them directly involved.
