Did David Cameron use 'swivel-eyed loons' jibe to deride Euro rebels too? New claims as PM backs Tory chairman accused using the insult

David Cameron has been dragged deeper into the 'swivel-eyed loon' row engulfing his party – after it was claimed that he used the insult himself to deride Euro rebels.

Tory Chairman Lord Feldman, a key member of the Prime Minister's inner circle, was yesterday forced to deny he had used the term against Conservative grassroots supporters, saying the claims were 'completely untrue'.

Mr Cameron put his reputation on the line by backing his Oxford University pal and tennis partner. But The Mail on Sunday can disclose that the Prime Minister was accused of using the same 'swivel-eyed' jibe last year.
