Hello all, good wishes to you.

Just heard this on BBC Radio 4 News.

Can one actually be a "Virtual Conservative" ? It conjures up images of shadowy, ethereal figures.(Perhaps wraiths might be a better description)

Surely it should have been "Conservative Party Virtual Conference"?

Happy to sit corrected if I'm wrong! ๐Ÿ˜

Maybe it is for those who are heading towards being a Tory ?

Closet Conservatives ? What happened to transparency ?

Also,what happened to " Tell the truth and shame the Devil ?"

Just as an aside with the latest test and trace debacle I love the latest from Rosen

Yes, to me too, it should have been Conservative Party Virtual Conference. It seems clumsy though.

Virtual Conservative Party sounds like a party that isn't quite Conservative, but nearly so.

I wonder what that should be called?
