The Conservative Party is "totally focussed on itself", Labour's Vice Chair Michael Dugher said today after claims that a senior Conservative aide accused party activists of being "mad swivel-eyed loons."
Mr Dugher: "With the economy flatlining and bills going up faster than wages, hard-pressed families are really feeling the squeeze. Yet we have a Conservative party that is totally focussed on itself, not on the country.
"We need strong leadership to deal with the big challenges we face as a country, but all we've got is a Prime Minister that is so weak that he can't even control his own party. As the Tories continue squabbling and flinging insults about, this only confirms just how out of touch they are".
David Cameron has given his backing to Conservative co-chairman Lord Feldman after he denied being responsible for alleged comments describing grassroot party activists as "swivel-eyed loons".

The co-chairman of the Conservative Party has denied being responsible for comments describing grassroots activists as "swivel-eyed loons" and condemned false rumours which have circulated on the internet. Lord Feldman says he is taking legal advice after being wrongly linked to the remarks.

This is completely untrue. I would like to make it quite clear that I did not nor have ever described our associations in this way or in any similar manner. Nor do these alleged comments represent my view of our activists.
– Lord Feldman
On the contrary in the last eight years of working for the party, I have found them to be hard working, committed and reasonable people. They are without question the backbone of the party.
I am very disappointed by the behaviour of the journalists involved, who have allowed rumour and innuendo to take hold by not putting these allegations to me before publication. I am taking legal advice.
Responding to a union leader's description of him as a "fanatical personal trainer," Mr Gove said: "You'd have to be a fanatical personal trainer to want to take me on".
He received no applause when he was introduced at a question and answer session at the National Association of Head Teachers' conference in Birmingham.
Education Secretary Michael Gove got the first round of applause of his address to the NAHT conference when he said he is "having second thoughts" about his plans for overhauling the teaching of history of schools.
He said he still wanted there to be an emphasis on "chronology" and "understanding narrative of this country," but that he did not want only British history to be taught, as some believe.

We need to raise standards so we have an education system that is on a par with the world's best.
Our academies programme is turning around hundreds of underperforming schools, we are introducing a world class curriculum and our reforms to exams will create qualifications that will keep pace with the demands of universities and employers. Surely this is something the NAHT should be supporting.
We will not stand by when schools are failing our children. Sponsored academies are turning around hundreds of underperforming schools and ensuring pupils are given every chance to fulfil their potential.
