Tories are trying to spin the disapproval in the Mail and elsewhere as class envy. Actually it is not. Nobody minds if someone is born rich. What they mind is rich people refusing to socialise with middle-class and poor people (Bullingdon for instance wouldn't have admitted Stephen Hawking as a member) and they mind rich people treating the poor and their property with disrespect.Should we be quite so surprised?
I seem to recall disrespect for the poor and their property on a much larger scale when the Blessed Margaret held the reins of power.
