Never dismiss Tory activists says Welsh party leader

Welsh Conservative leader Andrew RT Davies has said that 'no-one, but no-one should ever forget' the valuable work activists do for the party. He was responding to reports that a senior aide to the Prime Minister called grassroots Tories 'swivel-eyed loons.'

The Assembly Opposition leader praised 'all the members...who work tirelessly on behalf of our party' and said he not only appreciates the work they do but classes himself as one of them, adding that 'the only I way I sit here is because of their work.'
