Crowdsourcing our manifesto gave us control of the Council – and saw our parliamentary candidate returned successfully to Westminster with a thumping majority.
Councillor Chris Whitehouse KCSG is Chairman of London's leading political consultancy The Whitehouse Consultancy, a Member of the Isle of Wight County Council, Chairman of the Urology Trade Association, Director of Strategy for The European Specialist Sports Nutrition Alliance, Chairman of the LIFT Council, and served as an advisor to the British Olympic Association helping bring the 2012 Games to London.
He is Founder and Director of the UK's leading policy conference organisation, Westminster Forum Projects.
He serves as Secretary to the Catholic Legislators' Network in the Palace of Westminster and as a Trustee of the Right To Life Charitable Trust. In 2003 he was awarded a Knighthood of Saint Gregory by His Holiness Pope John Paul II for his service to the Catholic Church in public life. In 2016, His Holiness Pope Francis I promoted Chris to the rank of Knight Commander of Saint Gregory for his further service to the Church and, in particular, his work for the Catholic Legislators' Network. He is currently a postgraduate student at London's Heythrop College, working towards an MA in Contemporary Ethics.
Chris is married with four children and three grandchildren.

The sad collateral damage from this election is that we see leaving the Commons some stalwarts of the pro-life movement.
The right response to terrorism is increased police resources, better intelligence and a clamp-down on radicalisation, not new laws.
Reform of the NHS, affordable housing, lower taxes, upskilling the young and free trade should be priorities.
The way it is behaving on the Isle of Wight is crass – and risks further damage to education outcomes.
