Former Tory chairman Sir Jake Berry will be calling on the Tories to “blow up blobonomics” if they want to keep the Red Wall, as he warns that “the Oxbridge PPE cabal” rules the country.
Northern Research Group (NRG) founder says Conservatives must use their “subversive and creative spirit” and propose “all-round transformation” to stand a chance of winning the North in the next election.
Speaking at NRG's second annual conference in Doncaster, he will lash out at the civil servants, bankers and politicians who he says brought down two prime ministers with their Brexit “disregard” and are responsible for record high taxes. burden.
Rishi Sunak is also expected to speak at the event following his trip to Washington.
In an address published by The Times, Sir Jake said: “We must propose that power belongs to the individual and not to the state. In order to supply to the North, this broken model must be abandoned or, more simply, it is time to blow up blobonomics.
“This means not only moving the civil service to the North, but also the destruction of the Oxbridge PPE cabal that determines the policies that affect our lives.”
In a separate article for the Times Red Box, he defined “blobonomics” as “the political classes you don't know or often never voted for, who want to control your life.”
“Let's remember the Brexit furor when” blot” – the elite echelons of power – strained every nerve to cancel the democratic vote of the people. Their contempt for Brexit, ostensibly based on protecting their own power and wealth, cost us two prime ministers, including the much maligned Boris Johnson, who successfully walked the path of Brexit,” he said.
“Failure”. Blobonomics extends to its economic paradigms as well. Its supporters welcome the introduction of sin taxes on soda, tobacco and alcohol, ostensibly to discourage bad behavior.

John Stevenson, chairman of the NRG, also called on the Tories to bring more positive messages to the region.
Expected that the conference will bring hundreds of people, including ministers, rank-and-file MPs and party members, where the group is looking for inspiration to write the “Northern Manifesto”, which will be published in October.

He said that the new railway line connecting the great Cities of the North will bring huge benefits to the economy .
“The Elizabeth Line was a huge success, bringing real benefits to London and beyond. An investment of £18 billion has helped transform the capital and its environs,” he told The Telegraph.
