Should Labour Make Family Privilegean Issue in Crewe & Nantwich?

Two Young Socialists had a good wheeze dressing up as top hat and tails toting toffs to meet David Cameron and Edward Timpson off the train as they arrived to campaign in Crewe and Nantwich. Class war might seem like a good idea against two public schoolboys from privileged monied families.

Except Guido has the nagging feeling that it might it be a little unwise given that Labour have themselves chosen to use the hereditary principle in selecting Tamsin to fight the seat.

Tamsin Dunwoody is of course the privileged daughter of the Labour MP who held the seat until her death last month…

UPDATE : Guido’s co-conspirators comment that Tamsin’s grandfather, Morgan Phillips, was the General Secretary of the Labour Party, and her grandmother served as a minister in the House of Lords before being made the Lord Lieutenant of London. Tamsin is hardly working class…

Rowan Atkinson tells The Times

“All jokes about religion cause offence, so it’s pointless apologising for them. You should really only apologise for a bad joke. On that basis, no apology is required.”
