Labour’s ‘Poshest Candidate’ Reported to Police

Guido was only too pleased to bring attention to this year’s poshest candidate, Lauren De Thibault De Boesinghe, who is standing for Labour in their traditional middle-class heartlands of Middlesbrough. She makes Peter Mandleson look like a Hartlepool-native

Regrettably, Guido must now inform fans of the Flemish aristocracy that Lauren has been reported to Cleveland police for potentially misleading constituents by lying about her address.

In a letter addressed to De Thibault De Boesinghe, local Tories said it came as a surprise to see Lauren claim her address is in Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland, given she has – since leaving university – lived and worked for a telecommunications company headquartered in Berkshire; and at a presentation at her former private school, Yarm, said she was making “weekly trips back to the North East to establish myself as the Labour candidate”. 

Since writing the letter, Councillor Coupe, has escalated his complaint to the Cleveland Police. Perhaps estate agents couldn’t find any local castles for De Thibault De Boesinghe to move into…

Is Labour’s Poshest Candidate Standing in Middlesbrough?

Polling highlighted by Guido yesterday put to bed the idea Labour is the party of the working class, with the Tories enjoying a 20-point-lead over Labour amongst C2DE voters. Labour are having a bit of an identity crisis over this one…

Looking at the full list of declared candidates, Guido was struck by Labour emphatically proving this very point in Middlesbrough South – their Brexit voting northern former heartlands. Their candidate has been campaigning under the name ‘Lauren Dingsdale’ for months, however she has registered for the election under her true name: ‘Lauren De Thibault De Boesinghe’ – revealing she is bona fide Flemish aristocracy. The castle owning family are so notable they have their own Wikipedia page declaring them “notable and noble.” Makes Lady Nugee pale into comparison…

De Boesinghe is campaigning as a regular Teessider, she went to the distinguished private school, Yarm, and then onto politics at Oxford before working for the magic circle law firm, Slaughter and May – beefing up her cash pile even further by appearing on ITV’s Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. Presumably, she failed to choose either deal or no deal…
