When Total Politics met working class hero Owen Jones:

“Shane had Patagonian Cobbler (Sauvignon Blanc and apple liqueur mixed with peach puree and apple juice, topped with summer berries) and Taladro Argentino (vodka with Argentine mint syrup, lime cordial and fresh lime).

Owen drank lager.”

    Hmmm. Does he strike anyone who’s ever seen him on TV as a lager drinker?

    Does anyone happen to know what school(s) he went to?

    Ha. Less to do with pretending to have working class credentials and more to do with the fact it was a Monday night! Think I’ll skip the rest of the comments…

      Good for you sonny, because you’re going to be lighting these and many other pages up with well read and articulate counter-arguments you unfortunately may not like the sound of tomorrow night as well, just remember though, it IS what you always really wanted.
      If things don’t quite go your way, maybe give Penny a buzz and see if she’s got a spare room over in LA for you to bunk in so as you can ‘research’ your next masterpiece for a spell, until T4 give you both your own show that is…

    The Spelman injunction posting? I couldn’t possibly comment. Neither can anyone else, since the comments are closed. Mr. Fawkes: Is the Spelman posting subject to super-injunction? May we comment on the fact that we can’t comment?

    Some Geezer wot thinks, like everyone else, that Owen Jones is a poseur says:

    You know, maybe for being a poof, Owen Jones may not be all THAT poncy; it may just be he’s a man of simple tastes. Say, that gives me an idea– “O.J. Simple”! How’s about that for your image, Jonesy?

    I’ll bet it was only a half of lager too.
    My view on lager drinkers accords with that of the Macc Lads.
    Suggest he visits Gordon’s Takeaway next time.

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
