Gerald Howarth MP, Shadow Defence Minister, opens The Freedom Zone.
Gerald Howarth MP, the Shadow Defence Minister and Freedom Association Council Member, cut a symbolic red tape to launch The Freedom Zone on the Conservative Party Conference Fringe on Monday 29 September. Two young TFA Members, Sam Westrop (left) and Sean Melody (right) held the tape, as Gerald, flanked by Becca Harding (left), Chairman of TFA's new Northants Branch and Lydia Smith (right) watched Gerald declare open what proved to be a triumphantly successful two days of free thinking and open discussion. Douglas Carswell MP (left), Roger Helmer MEP and Daniel Hannan MEP were at the opening prior to speaking in two sessions on the future beyond the EU and ideas for the Conservative Party European "Parliament" Election Manifesto. Roger described the event as "not only a major achievement for TFA, but a blow in the cause of freedom".
