Left Wing Hypocrisy - la lotta continua

The woman with the most alluring voice in the House Of Commons, whose breathy tones would be perfect for the late night Radio 2 slot, Diane Abbott, sends her son to a private school. So joining a long list of left-wing hypocrites such as Harriet Harman, who was criticised for her decision by, er - Diane Abbott. At the time Ms Abbott said.

"She made the Labour Party look as if we do one thing and say another."

(In the Lords the cut-glass accent of Tessa Blackstone wins Best Voice. When I hear her announce some disastrous and destructive initiative in those impeccable tones I get a tinge of what Winston Smith felt for Julia during the Two Minute Hate. And Worst Voice ? An Andrew in the Commons - Rosindell or Mackinlay ? Have to think about the Lords.)
