ConservativeHome was founded by Tim Montgomerie on Easter Monday 2005 to champion the interests of grassroots Tory members and to argue for a broad conservatism that is as serious about social justice as it is about economic competitiveness. Our main current campaign is for Homes Jobs and Savings, and the shields on our masthead help to represent it.
We are independent of the Conservative Party but supportive of it. ConservativeHome is owned by Michael Ashcroft and co-founded by Stephan Shakespeare.
By 8.30am every weekday and by 9am at weekends our frontpage provides a comprehensive news summary. ConservativeHome links to every important news and comment article in each day’s media as well as publishing comment articles of its own. The ToryDiary is the heart of the site. On these pages, the editorial team analyses developments in the Conservative Party.
The Majority section is an important commitment to explore how the Conservative Party can win a governing majority at the next election and in future.
ConservativeHome is edited by Paul Goodman, and the team is: Mark Wallace (Executive Editor), Peter Hoskin, Harry Phibbs (Local Government editor), Andrew Gimson and Peter Franklin. Tim Montgomerie continues to contribute to the site..
