If the Countryside Alliance as a whole forms an alliance with the Conservative Party, they could provide an army of motivated activists across hundreds of constituencies.
They worked hard to push out anti-hunting labour MP’s at the last GE and enjoyed some successes. They’ve had a taste of success and no doubt would now like to use their strength (maybe up to 1 million committed supporters) to bring about political change in the UK.
I am not sure how much CRAG – The Conservative Rural Action Group (founded 2002) – impacts on the Countryside Alliance. I imagine that connection between the two organisations so far have been informal and friendly. If Simon Hart were to become an MP, the alignment of the CA with CRAG would no doubt increase, and begin changing the colour of many more Constituencies to Blue.
