What a curious thing for Labour’s Emily Thornberry to tweet. Was it the white van, the England flag or the house that so offended Lady Nugee? How would she like it if someone posted a picture of one of her many, many houses online?
UPDATE: The internet reacts:
At what point does a Labour MP, from a party struggling to retain the loyalty of the working-class, think "tweeting this is a good idea".

Not sure I quite get @EmilyThornberry last tweet.

What does Labour MP @EmilyThornberry mean by this Tweet? Is there anything wrong with a white van? https://t.co/vY4mHVjzIE

No doubt @EmilyThornberry and Labour snobs think patriotically displaying England flag somehow a sign of prejudice and low IQ #Clueless

If you're working class and like football, especially if you support West Ham then @EmilyThornberry doesn't want you to vote for @UKLabour

@EmilyThornberry Hold on love. Are you a Labour MP or Hyacinth Bucket?

UPDATE: A Labour spokesperson says “what’s the problem?”
They just don’t get it.
