Inverted snobbery in Crewe and Nantwich

What school a candidate went to, and who his or her parents were, should not be a major factor in an election, certainly not when compared his or her abilities and policies.

The comments I am about to make are a criticism of the childishness and hypocrisy of the Labour campaign in Crewe and Nantwich, not about the origins of the Labour candidate.

All parties have unfortunately been occasionally guilty of petty stunts at election times, but the Labour party dressing people up as "Toffs" was sillier than most. This would have been unwise at the best of times.

To use such a tactic just after the party got themselves in their 10p tax shambles when they increased taxes on the poor to pay for tax cuts for "Toffs" was spectacularly incompetent. And to do so in a by-election in which it is the Labour candidate, not the tory, who has an entry in Burke's Peerage and Gentry - go to the URL below if you don't believe me - is elevating both hypocrisy and stupidity to an art form.

You can find the entry for Labour's Crewe and Nantwich candidate TAMSIN DUNWOODY [Mrs Tamsin Dunwoody-Kneafsey) in Burke's Peerage and Gentry at the following URL:

I am sure Guido will have mentioned it. Happy to give credit to Political Betting which is where I noticed it. The information has since appeared in today's newspapers such as The Times.

And I suspect the fact was not missed by some of the former Labour supporters in Crewe and Nantwich who voted Tory on Thursday.
