Lord Ashcroft

In Inside Track (14 May) we incorrectly stated that Lord Ashcroft had confidently predicted that David Cameron was facing electoral annihilation and had left a dinner ashen-faced when it became apparent that this would not happen. We are happy to clarify that, while Lord Ashcroft discussed potential outcomes, he made no predictions during the event. Nor did he leave the event ashen-faced; he left to go to a previously arranged appearance on LBC. We apologise to Lord Ashcroft for any misunderstanding.
