Whether David Cameron likes it or not, Zac Goldsmith is one of the most recognisable young Tory MPs who has influence and interest well beyond the walled garden of Westminster.
As his Conservative colleagues meet in Manchester to discuss the immediate future of their party, Goldsmith joins The Huffington Post UK for one of our Conversation Starter Fringe Events with political director Mehdi Hasan.
The event starts at 12.30pm on Tuesday and we'll be live blogging the event here. You can follow your host Mehdi Hasan here, the guest Zac Goldsmith, assistant political editor Ned Simons who will be updating this blog, along with executive editor Stephen Hull.
