Patriotism, literally, means ‘love of ‘father’-land’. This eleventh award of the Inaugural Conservative Movement Awards seeks to award a conservative who has acted upon their love of country in a significant way. Your nominations and citations are sought for someone who understands the first duty of government to defend the realm, to stand up for the unity of the kingdom or believes that too many powers have been surrendered to supranational bureaucracies. This award might be, for example, suitable for a regular author, a blogger, a campaigner or a parliamentarian.
Tomorrow we’ll be opening nominations for the compassionate conservative award.
