Candidate of the day

Owen Paterson

One day to go and Sir John Major has weighed in. “Labour divides to rule. To win votes they will turn rich against poor; north against south; worker against boss." We hope we don't wake up with them on Friday.

Hero of the day

Sir John Major

Villain of the day

Lucy Powell

THE REAL CONSERVATIVE MANIFESTO

Back marriage. Restore grammar schools. Leave the EU.

Like most website operators, The Conservative Woman collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.

The Conservative Woman’s also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to The Conservative Woman’s choose to interact with us in ways that require The Conservative Woman’s to gather personally-identifying information.
