Jim Hood, Labour MP for Lanark & Hamilton East has criticised the Conservatives' choice of accountant John Howell, a former partner at City accountant Ernst and Young, to fight the Henley by-election.
Mr Hood said, " Is the Tory Party not running out of super rich male lawyers and accountants yet. What happened to David Cameron's, 'I want the Tory Party to be more representative of the whole country and select more women in winnable seats' pledge?
"Tut, tut, this will not do Mr Cameron."
So the grammar school boy who has lived in Henley for twenty years and sent his three kids to local state schools isn't good enough for Mr Hood. It seems that even after the Crewe disaster Labour is persevering with class war attacks. Look at the sneering reference to "former partner at City Accountant Ernst & Young. You can almost hear him spitting the words out. Apart from that, it's just bizarre to put the phrase 'tut, tut' in a press release.
