The party chairman writes to Conservative supporters
The party chairman, Sir Patrick McLoughlin, has written a message of thanks to all those who worked for the election of Conservative candidates up and down the country ...
"Subject: Thank you
I wanted to write to you and thank you for your incredible hard work over the last few weeks.
During this campaign I have traveled up and down the country and witnessed first-hand the enthusiasm, dedication and hard work of our members. I know many of you will be disappointed and in particular I feel sorry for those colleagues who were MPs or ministers who had contributed so much to our country and who lost their seats.
As we all reflect on the result let us remind ourselves that it is our Party, the Conservative Party, which will continue to provide the country with the certainty it needs in the coming years.
I hope you have a restful weekend and thank you once again for all of your incredible efforts.
Patrick McLoughlin Chairman of the Conservative Party"
