Gordon Brown is no class act!

Gordon Brown obviously thinks its funny to bring up the old class war stuff. There are plenty in the Labour Party who can't stand "gents". They have an abiding hatred of public schools and "anything proper". So, because David Cameron went to Eton, they think it fair game to have a go at him. Just like they got rid of hereditary peers, or most of them, from the House of Lords, they try to sneer and jape at someone's background.

Is Gordon Brown so great? He was recently telling us his family was "ordinary". Do we care? Not really. I am much more concerned about him saying he made "a mistake" over the 10p tax fiasco, when in fact he knew at the time he was deliberately causing the poor to suffer. It was no mistake Gordon. Personally, I prefer toffs to liars!

In the Crewe and Nantwich by-election, the Labour Party has been finding it fun to poke fun at people they think posh. The word hypocrite comes to mind. As if they've never had a toff on their side of the House. One minister said, "Voters simply aren't concerned if someone went to a posh school and a good number are actually turned off by these sorts of attacks. Frankly they make us look puerile. The mayoral elections should have demonstrated to everybody that they don't work." Exactly! Boris Johnson is an Old Etonian. Londoners preferred him to the product of a "local school".
