Who was Lauretta Sullivan?

"I'm a socialist by conviction, if not by lifestyle," and another, "I'm a socialist from way back, but in order to pay my back taxes I have to live in America to earn enough money to pay the back tax I owe to the socialist government that I voted in."

He later joked that when a Labour cabinet minister said to him,

"Of course you vote Labour," Feldman replied, "No, I don't, because I'm a socialist!" Nevertheless, he generally did not seriously discuss politics in public, once quoted: "I feel it would be presumptuous for me to make any statements about American politics because I’m a guest here."
