H&F Tory links to controversial right wing foundation

Tory MP Greg Hands and H&F Tory cabinet member Cllr Greg Smith have been linked to the right wing Young Britons' Foundation.

The Foundation's leader and former H&F councillor, Donal Blaney, has called the NHS Britain's 'biggest waste of money', claimed global warming is a 'scam' and suggested that the water-boarding of prisoners can be justified.

Greg Smith, who also coordinates Shaun Bailey's campaign in Hammersmith, co-founded the YBF which trains Conservative politicians and activists.

Donal Blaney has repeatedly attacked David Cameron's leadership of the Conservative Party. Local Tory MP Greg Hands is also heavily involved with the Young Britons' Foundation and sits on the organisation's Parliamentary Council.
