The Party Chairman’s Office have decided to stop paying for a dedicated driver as part of a shift in resources to more frontline political activity (two regional press officers could be hired with the money saved).
Francis Maude won’t have to walk around Westminster, however, as CCHQ is going to buy several bikes for staff to nip to Parliament in. They will be customised with Conservative logos etc – very cool. Cycling is easily the best way to get around central London.
CCHQ will be announcing a summer membership recruitment drive later today.
