The London Swinton Circle was founded in the mid 1960’s. Its original membership was composed solely of those who had attended Conservative Party training schools at Swinton Castle in Yorkshire, and who wished to maintain contact with each other through regular meetings in London. Since that time, however, the London Swinton Circle has expanded its membership, and now welcomes members from all backgrounds who support traditional Conservative and Unionist principles.
The Circle holds regular meetings which are addressed by speakers on issues of interest to the Circle. Over the years the Circle has been addressed by members of the Conservative Party, the United Kingdom Independence Party and from the Ulster Unionist parties. The Circle has also been addressed by a number of authors, journalists, campaigners and other political commentators.
On 27 February the Circle was addressed by Sammy Wilson, MP for East Antrim. He said that the support of the Democratic Unionist Party had been vital in 75% of the Brexit votes in this Parliament. He said that the details of the draft treaty have “fundamentally breached” an agreement reached in Brussels late last year. He argued the draft divorce treaty would also undermine the constitutional status of Northern Ireland in the Belfast Agreement. During questions and answers the matters of the ECHR, climate change, what a Corbyn Government would mean for Britain, defence cuts, and the Irish Republic and a European Army were discussed.
Full details of our next meeting will be circulated to members.
Members may also be interested in a meeting of the Bruges Group on 28 March entitled “Clean Brexit“.
