One of the great successes of our time in Opposition (at Westminster) has been the resurgence of Conservatives at a local level.  I carried out a random survey of a few frontbenchers last week and there is very uneven contact between our Westminster team and our local councillors.

What about a few major public conferences where local and national Conservatives come together to discuss housing, social justice and the environment?  The Conservatives in local government have, I’m sure, much to teach the Westminster leadership and by holding these gatherings the national leadership can communicate that our interest in more affordable housing, a better relationship with the voluntary sector and practical environmentalism runs throughout the whole party.

Idea 4: Restore the standing of the shadow cabinet and other frontbenchers
