Conservative Party conference app flaw discloses MPs' personal details

"The last time when the Conservative party was truly on the side of business was when we had exceptional leadership under Margaret Thatcher".

One of Labour's shadow cabinet, Jon Trickett, criticised the Conservatives for the breach and said: "How can we trust this Tory government with our country's security when they can't even build a conference app that keeps the data of their members, MPs and others attending safe?"

It is likely that it affected a very small proportion of attendees and we are working with the Conservative Party to ensure any potentially affected attendees are notified.

Although in Johnson's case, that could quite easily have been done by the former Foreign Secretary himself, in between column writing.

In a BBC interview on Sunday, the prime minister said her plan was the only way to protect cross-border trade in goods and avoid physical checks on the Irish border.

Rees-Mogg told an audience largely composed of his supporters in a packed morning fringe event at the ICC in Birmingham that Brexiters had to get away from the "Ukipisation" of the vote to leave the European Union in order to win back the support of young people, and tried to reframe the issue as a question of sovereignty.

Analysts believe May will have to give further ground to Brussels to secure a withdrawal agreement before Brexit in March next year, but no announcements are expected in Birmingham.

The Press Association said the details of Environment Secretary Michael Gove had also been shared online. "You can't beat (Jeremy) Corbyn by becoming Corbyn".

Since losing her parliamentary majority in a disastrous snap election previous year, May has faced endless internal plotting and rumors of a leadership challenge.

Charismatic and with a populist touch, Johnson is a favourite with the Conservative faithful and is expected to draw large crowds to his speech at a fringe event on Tuesday.

"I think there's lots of failures of propaganda really that we have allowed Brexit to be about immigration or putting up barriers or not liking going on holiday in Europe".

A major flaw in the British Conservative Party's official conference phone application made the private data of senior party members including cabinet ministers accessible to anyone that logged in as a conference attendee.

"My message to my party is, let's come together and get the best deal for Britain", she said. "They can not even build a basic conference app without a huge data breach, and it's terrifying that they're in charge of the tech that runs our hospitals, schools and airports".

The loophole in the app was quickly closed and the Conservatives apologized for the incident on Saturday.
