Unknown LibDem Richmond candidate Sarah Olney has used her first national newspaper interview to launch a clumsy attack on Zac Goldsmith’s wealth. Speaking to the MoS, Olney went after Zac over the money he inherited from his dad, claiming he won’t understand what it means if the price of Marmite goes up. A strange class war attack line – leafy Richmond is hardly full of people who’ll be pushed below the breadline. Zac responded by taking the Michelle Obama approach last night:
Congratulations to Sarah Olney on her selection as Lib Dem candidate this afternoon. Looking forward to seeing her on the campaign trail.

Doesn’t exactly fit the LibDem narrative that Zac is nasty and they’re the cuddly ones…
