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.
The Circle was addressed by Lindsay Jenkins on 13 October. The address highlighted the many failings of the vote leave campaign, the attempts to silence Nigel Farage, and how despite the vote to leave pro-Europe groups were all relaunching themselves and were now constructing a new narrative for themselves. There was optimism that Brexit would be achieved according to the timescale. The importance of free trade agreements with Australia and Canada was emphasised.
Full details of our next meeting will be circulated to members.
Members may also be interested in a buffet dinner organised by the Bruges Group on 6 December under the title “From Bruges to Maastricht to Brexit”
