Conservative History Group Launches new Blog

One of the lesser known hats that I wear is the Director of the Conservative History Group. The Group was set up in 2002 by myself and Keith Simpson MP to promote the discussion of the history of the Tory Party. The latest news is that the Group has just started a new Blog, which you can visit HERE. It's run by the editor of the bi-annual Conservative History Journal, Helen Szamuely but we want lots of people to contribute to it. There will also be a new Conservative History Group website soon. The first meeting of the year will be held at 6.30pm on 25 April in the House of Commons. Peter Mangold will speak on his new book, Macmillan & De Gaulle: Impossible Allies. If you'd like to attend, send me an email. Membership of the CHG, which includes a susbcription to the Journal and invitations to all events, costs £15 per annum and you can join HERE.

Now just why are you plugging the issue with Baldwin on the cover? Far too wet for you, I would have thought. All that "Peace in our time" stuff over the unions? Anathema!

Given that Baldwin was both the most successful Conservative leader ever (majorities of 223, 247 and 500 don't happen every election) and the greatest leader the party has ever seen, I'm glad to see Iain went for that one.

Which cover would you have used?
