Middle class and left leaning. Lol!

Of course they are! Run a few bios. Tory mouthpieces the lot.


OK, let's start with Andrew Marr. Son of an investment banker, went to Prepatory School (as did Jezza), then two Independent schools. Quote "Regarding his political affiliations, he was formerly a Maoistand a member of the Socialist Campaign for a Labour Victory, an offshoot of the International-Communist League, now known as the Alliance for Workers' Liberty. At Cambridge, Marr says he was a "raving leftie"
who handed out copies of Mao's Little Red Book and he acquired the nickname Red Andy."
He is married to Jackie Ashley, daughter of Baron Ashley, the Labour Peer, and who has worked for those right-leaning publications the New Statesman and the Guardian.
Yes, a good example of a Tory mouth piece.

Next, the BBC reporter who asked Gordon Brown " When we win the election..." 

2005 Labour got 355 seats from 35.2 % of the vote on a 62.4% turnout. 2015 Tories got 331 seats from 36.9% of the vote on a 661% turnout. Left wing fannies moan the second one is sooooo unfair and we need electoral reform. But didn't utter a peep,about the first one.

Replying to the second of your four posts, this is presumably an example of what the son of a middle class schoolteacher whose mummy never had to work and spent her whole time looking after her candykins considers a broadcaster with a middle class background.

Humphrys was born in Cardiff at 193 Pearl Street, Adamsdown, son of Winifred Mary (Matthews), a hairdresser, and Edward George Humphrys, a self-employed French polisher.[4][6] He was one of five children.During early life Humphrys had a bout of whooping cough and concerned that he would be known as 'Dismal Desmond' his mother opted to use the name John. His parents encouraged him to do his homework and he passed the eleven plus exam.He became a pupil at Cardiff High School (then a grammar school), but he did not fit into the middle class environment there. He was an average pupil and left school at 15 to become a reporter on the Penarth Times. He later joined the Western Mail. 

2005 Labour got 355 seats from 35.2 % of the vote on a 62.4% turnout. 2015 Tories got 331 seats from 36.9% of the vote on a 661% turnout. Left wing fannies moan the second one is sooooo unfair and we need electoral reform. But didn't utter a peep,about the first one.
