On Friday night I gave a half hour lecture to about 125 Upper Sixth formers and teachers at Gresham's School in Holt. The title of my lecture was "What is the Conservative Party for?" I decided to keep it very serious and refrain from my usual jokes. I had 40 minutes of questions, which could easily have gone on for another half an hour. It was quite a challenging audience but a hugely enjoyable experience. At the end the teacher in charge carried out a vote. 7 Lib Dems, 10 Greens, 12 Labour and rest Tory! If only that would be reflected throughout the rest of North Norfolk!
