Tristram Hunt on Privilege

Very witty of Labour HQ to put Tristram Hunt, the shadow education secretary, up to attack the coalition for failing on social mobility, he says “Under the Tories, the attainment gap between disadvantaged children and the rest is blah blah blah…” That is Tristram Hunt,  son of Julian Hunt, Baron Hunt of Chesterton, educated at the exclusive private University College School and Trinity College, Cambridge. How we laughed…

    BBC News says:

    This is great, we can lead on this and Carswell, rather than more embarrassment for our friends at Rotherham Council

    Bill Quango MP says:

    The answer to these idiotic lefty ‘check your privilege’ loons is to ask them to

    “Check their competence.”

    So if they say you cannot comment on poverty in London unless you are a pauper, you don’t need to listen to their theories on employment if they have never run a business.

    A right Hunt says:

    Labour’s social mobility for disadvantaged kids consists of free taxi’s (and kebabs) with a dash of sex education on the side.

    Michael Corby says:

    Especially as social mobility had its biggest decline inder Labour.

  19. 19
    Labour newsroom says:

    “and the ones who fall through our net have been completely let down these tories”.

  20. 20
    The News says:

    ‘Half of Stoke-on-Trent’s Labour councillors to step down from office’

    Tristram and Ed should explain why?

    Oborne spot on, this time says:

    Not Peter Oborne’s greatest fan.

    But, speaking of Carswell, Oborne says:

    “He believes in all the things to which ordinary politicians pay lip service, but in reality frighten them to death.”

  25. 25
    Douglas Carswell says:

    I have not become a member in saying of UKIP and to talk about there policies. I have not got the foggest notion of the detail except EU exit.

    Although no more than a token member of UKIP I shall talk about my political views fashioned out whilst a active member of the Conservative Party.

    Sod off UKIP members.

    Nigel, see you in the Baying Dog for a pint, later.

  26. 26
    Drips that dropped says:

    Just come in and heard this, welcome to UKIP Mr Carswell, I think you will find the people in UKIP, honest and decent and NOT racist as your old boss said we were.

  27. 27
    Psychotic, champagne socialist, pedophile, necrophiliac, violent, BBC light entertainment star/DJ says:

    The tories had the chance to appeal to the working class voters,,,who are nominally under the spell of the leftist, elitist filth

    Immigration slashed, tax slashed, more scum gong to newly constructed prison cells, one language permitted in state schools, and so on, and so forth.

    But no it didn’t happen, and so the dimwits of Rotherham will forever be forced to live in a socialist shitole

    Quiet Bat Person says:

    And to think Harry Enfield portrayed Tim Nice-but-dim as a Tory boy.

  32. 32
    Rickytshirt says:

    The argument he makes is that simultaneously decrying the coalition for lack of progress on social mobility, they are simultaneously an increasingly nepotistic and decreasingly working class party. It’s called hypocrisy.

  33. 33
    still walking into darkness says:

    Talk about the face to punch

  34. 34
    FFS you moron says:

    You really think Carswell spells “their” as “there”?

  35. 35
    Back1woodsman says:

    erm, the argument being , its utterly fricking hypocritical to put up one of the red princes , to waffle about some nebulous report, while the labour party leader refuses to comment on massive child abuse in a labour fief, carried out by labours very own fifth column . Will that do ?

  36. 36
    The British media are cunts says:

    I notice that the BBC don’t bother to tell us how many of the Shadow Cabinet went to private school or Oxbridge.

  37. 37
    Inquiring minds says:

    Source? A websearch reveals nowt.

    Pretentious Barons says:

    How amusing, a Tristram when he should have been a Mike!

    …..and if you are going to be the usual champagne socialist but try to convice of a more ordinary background, the old Baron should have chosen from any of the following for his boy wonder:

    shane, mason, tyler, curtis, dwayne, kade, kane, troy, leroy, brooklyn, tyrone

  39. 39

    Ctesibius says:

    Ha ha ha, Anon?

    You mean like Milliband with his ‘tax cuts for millionaires’ claptrap, like sending Labour Party flunky’s dressed in Top Hats and Tails to harass Tory MPs (presumably they got the toff gear from Daddy)?

    Or do you mean like that quite disgusting party political broadcast which ‘One Nation Labour’ put out where a thinly disguised (although more plummy voiced) David Cameron was made to say – ‘let’s hit the disabled, they can’t hit back.’ Recall that Samantha and David Cameron’s profoundly disabled son Ivan was nursed throughout his short life by Samantha and David and treated by the NHS.

    Pointing out what a toff the Hon Tristram is obviously hurts you Labour thickos so be assured you are going to hear a lot more about Labour Toffs.

    Voted against a referendum on the UK’s membership of the.

    Voted against a reduction in spending on welfare benefits.

    Voted against lower taxes on fuel for motor vehicles.

    Voted against encouraging occupational pensions.

    Voted for a banker’s bonus tax (so Labour can waste more money on themselves, on useless think-tanks and failed projects).

    Voted for an annual tax on the value of expensive homes (popularly known as a mansion tax).

    Voted against allowing employees to exchange some employment rights for shares in the company they work for.

    Voted against reducing the rate of corporation tax (for small/medium size businesses).

    Voted against measures to reduce tax avoidance.

    Voted for restricting the provision of services to private patients by the NHS.

    Voted against an equal number of electors per parliamentary constituency.

    Voted against fewer MPs in the House of Commons.

    Voted for a wholly elected House of Lords.

    Voted against greater restrictions on campaigning by third parties, such as charities, during elections (charities like Bernardos that couldn’t help stop the sexual exploitation in Rotherham).

    Voted against fixed periods between parliamentary elections (so elections can take place after more than 5 years).

    Voted against a statutory register of lobbyists (linked to the Labour Party).

    Voted against restricting the scope of legal aid (therefore the UK will continue funding corrupt countries like Nigeria & Pakistan that are hotbeds for terrorism, violence against women & children, kidnapping, identity theft, financial fraud, human/drug trafficking etc).

    Douglas Carswell seems to be very, very confident of getting in again in the by-election the seat does not look like a fore gone conclusion, maybe he thought that as UKip might dethrone him and UKip is taking voters from all political parties, he might as well join UKip.

    Sailor Sam says:

    He talks bollocks. Through my youth I know of two kids from council estates in his constituency one who is now a GP (and an active member of his local Tory association) and another who is a barrister. Another who went from being enlisted to holding a commission. Several more graduates all who got proper degrees when it took some effort to get into uni. And a couple of SME owners.

    If he wants to improve mobility bring back the grammar schools. The privileged privately educated hate grammar schools because they know it puts the brightest of the lowest orders on a near equal footing with them. Can’t those with a working class background competing for middle class jobs can we?

    In a way university for all isn’t about empowerment but more to do with devaluing skilled manual labour. Don’t get your hands dirty have a non-job. Industry suffers and there aren’t enough call centre or non-jobs like personnel manager to go around and hey preto you have high youth unemployment. Meaning the middle class socialist maintain a constituency to control.

    Hunt can fuck off.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
