A relic of the glory days of Conservative Party organisation

The membership of political parties declined markedly in recent days and so has the number of full-time agents.

I have come across a rather sad website - Antiquated Agents - that reflects this decline. It aims to keep retired and former Conservative Party agents in touch. It carries a lot of obituaries.

Their Brideshead, exclusion from which clearly still rankles for some, is "Swinton" - Swinton Conservative College, which closed in 1980.
