This morning he was quoted in the Mail on Sunday as saying "There's no reason to join the Tories. We've come over as voracious, crass, always on the take".
This evening David Camerons's West Oxfordshire Constituency Party Chairman Christopher Shale has been found dead in a toilet in the VIP area at Glastonbury. His sudden death is not being treated as suspicious but as David Cameron has said ""a close and valued friend - a big rock in my life has suddenly been rolled away".
Having lost one such friend myself very suddenly recently my thoughts are with Mr Shale's wife and three grown up children, other family members and friends, including the Prime Minister.
