Luke Parker. Conservative Campaigner

“I have known Luke for over 10 years since we were Area Officers together and he was our regional Chair. Luke is a natural Conservative thinker and an outstanding campaigner. He would be an excellent Member of Parliament and a huge asset to the Conservatives in Westminster.”  Kemi Badenoch, Secretary of State for Business and Trade

Extract from Fraser Nelson, Editor of the Spectator Magazine, ‘Coffee House’ Blog:

“Luke Parker is one of the most promising Tory activists I’ve met… He has a very well-paid job which he is willing to give up for what he sees as public service.  He is a tireless activist for the Tories and has come up through life the hard way: he’s from a working-class background and his life story is rather different… like Sajid Javid, his life has been a model of what social mobility should be in Britain – but all too often, isn’t. He has entered politics to do what he can to make the social mobility he enjoyed a more common experience. For Parker it’s the opposite of a career move: politics means longer hours and much less money. But you can argue that having benefited from a decent education and great business opportunity it’s your duty to put something back…”
