Co-chairman of the conservative party Grants Schapps said he was in the room and "in perfect earshot" when he heard Lord Feldman not call activists of his party "swivel eyed loons". "I distinctly heard him not say it and in fact on the way home I clearly recall saying to my wife "It's a good thing Lord Feldman didn't call activists "swivel eyed loons" at today's event. To which she replied "can we have a bigger house and another car?"
I think I also heard Lord Feldman not saying "nobody buys nougat any more", "my accountant looks like Molly Weir" and he at no time said that a sweep is lucky as lucky can be. I found these omissions less noteworthy than the ones related to constituency members, who do a damn good job.
