Exclusive: Oliver Cooper responds to #emailgate

Oliver Cooper has been a busy boy recently having gone everywhere to campaign, including Eastleigh. Now that Sarah-Jane Sewell has given a statement on #emailgate (see http://thingselliottsays.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/exclusive-sarah-jane-comments-on.html ), in which Matt Robinson has alleged to have broken the Data Protection Act, Oliver Cooper, exclusively to #ThingsElliottSays, has done likewise.

"As someone outside the leadership clique, I don't have access to any Conservative Future membership data and I never have done.

"I would refuse to use the data if I did have access to it. It's been suggested that the other candidates should be allowed to use the same database. However, a second illegal abuse of members' personal information doesn't make up for abusing it in the first place. Two wrongs don't make a right.

"If we want to restore the trust of CF members, candidates have to be level with them, not just make it level between themselves. Because if the members lose, no candidate wins."
