Conservative Collegiate Forum

The Conservative Collegiate Forum (CCF) was the British Conservative Party's national student organisation from 1986 to 1998.

It was the successor to the Federation of Conservative Students. From 1990 onwards, the organisation was widely but unofficially known as Conservative Students.

CCF existed until the merger with Young Conservatives and Conservative Graduates in 1998 to create Conservative Future.

Famous quotes containing the words conservative and/or forum:

    Growing older, I have lost the need to be political, which means, in this country, the need to be left. I am driven into grudging toleration of the Conservative Party because it is the party of non-politics, of resistance to politics.
    Kingsley Amis (1922–1995)

    What is called eloquence in the forum is commonly found to be rhetoric in the study. The orator yields to the inspiration of a transient occasion, and speaks to the mob before him, to those who can hear him; but the writer, whose more equable life is his occasion, and who would be distracted by the event and the crowd which inspire the orator, speaks to the intellect and heart of mankind, to all in any age who can understand him.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
