Labour (or The National Socialist Workers Party Of Great Britain to give them their full name) likes to present itself as “The People’s Party” the political party that represents DHWFs (Decent Hard Working Folks like you and m… you and your friends.
And at the moment the issue causing most wailing and gnashing of teeth among the middle class elitists who make up Labour’s active membership is fuel bills.
Labour have got their kickers in such a twist about poor people not being able to affor to heat their homes that have been running party political broadcasts on the topic. The broadcast in question was supposed to feature ordinary people venting their fury at energy price hikes. Only Labour PR people are such an obnoxious bunch of elitists they could not actually find and ordinary people (or maybe did not want to get to close for fear of catching some working class disease.)
So the people featured in the broadcast, far from being DHWFs who were struggling to pay their fuel bills actually included a millionaire restaurant owner and a media luvvie among other affluent, elitist, Labour supporters.
One of them was Beresford Casey, owner of a posh burger chain, who lives in the plush Primrose Hill area of north London.
And another was Jack Monroe, a campaigner and journalist who has writes for the Guardian and the Independent.
