The Telford Conservative Association and our PPC Lucy Allan proudly welcomed our Prime Minister Boris Johnson and our Cabinet to Telford as we launch our Conservative Party Manifesto.✊
Boris on true form arrived in his #GetBrexitDone bus and gave an inspiring speech on how this manifesto will set our vision for the future and unite our great country.
As Boris stated “the industrial revolution began in nearby Coalbrookdale” in acknowledgement of how befitting it was to launch our manifesto of innovation and a new revolution here in Telford.
We’ve had an absolutely brilliant day here in Telford and we’re so pleased that Telford was chosen to launch our aspirational manifesto. We have some fantastic supporters here in Telford as it was absolutely brilliant to hear directly from our PM on how our plan will Get Brexit Done, will focus on your priorities, unleash Britain’s potential and put you at the heart of its plan✊
