Karen Allen

I fought South Shields at the May 2010 General Election for the Conservatives, gaining a 6.4% swing which was a 4% vote increase. The Conservatives polled 7,886 up from 5,207 in 2005. I was born in the North East and grew up in South Shields. I currently live in London and am employed as a Director at Lloyd's Broker Howden International.

Compassionate Conservatism: Jesse Norman

Jesse Norman spoke very impressively at this evening's event at CCHQ, when he told us about the Cameroonian Compassionate Conservatism currently sweeping through the Party. We are the new Conservatives and FDA is our brand: freedom, decentralisation and accountability.
This session was also broadcast on CF TV, thanks to the endeavours of Andrew Young. I hope this is the first of several events along the same strand. It's certainly the sort of stimulating session I would want to be involved in organising; it was educating and prompted discussion.
It was also very interesting to see the mixture of attendees. Although this was a CF billed event the majority of the attendees seemed to me, on a cursory glance of the audience, to be aged 25-35.

Good luck for the NME Karen, I hope you get in and your hard work pays off.

It should be an interesting contest this year.

Glad you've moderated the pic as well!
