But the winner this year has to be Robert Halfon, the MP for Harlow, for forcing the Conservative Party to connect with voters.

If you own a car you are saving hundreds of pounds a year because of Robert Halfon and his campaign to freeze and cut fuel duty. The people of Britain have a lot to thank him for and so in turn does the Conservative Party because by helping people on day to day issues we gain trust from the electorate. The Conservatives in Government are there to serve the people who put them in place, which is the ordinary people up and down the country who would like their lives to be a little easier. The cutting of fuel duty directly helps ordinary hard working people up and down the country and that is what some of them will remember when going to the ballot boxes in 2015 and voting Conservative.

Rob has done a lot and has some great ideas like making sure everyone is on a living wage through tax cuts and to rename the Conservative Party the 'Workers Party' to accurately reflect the objective of aspiration. But if Robert Halfon has taught the Conservatives anything it is to campaign for the things that matter to people's lives and then talk about these things using caring language. It has worked for Rob in Harlow so much so that local trade unions are backing him in 2015. He is a worthy winner of the #ThingsElliottSays' best politician of the year award.
