The Conservative Party has a long history of shaping British politics.

Chancellor of the Exchequer – Rt. Hon Sajid Javid MP
Foreign Secretary – Rt Hon. Dominic Raab MP
Home Secretary – Rt Hon Pritti Patel MP
In the 2015 General Election a Conservative Majority was returned for the first time in twenty-two years. This was an unexpected outcome as it was largely anticipated that a further coalition government would be created following the Conservative/Liberal Democrat coalition government after the 2010 General Election.
Following the resignation of David Cameron after the shock Brexit result from the European Union a leadership contest was held for the Leader of the Conservative Party and next PM.
Under the rules of the 1922 Committee, Theresa May was selected as Leader of the Conservative Party and on 13th July became Her Majesty the Queen’s 13th British Prime Minister. Mrs May became only the second female Prime Minister after Margaret Thatcher.
Following a failure three times to get her Withdraw Agreement from the European Union through the UK Parliament, Mrs May resigned. A leadership election followed where Boris Johnson MP beat Jeremy Hunt MP to become the next Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
