The ultimate Guardian column ever

Wealthy, upper middle class, lefty, Eton and Cambridge, reports on what a very nasty man Rupert Murdoch is, from his holiday home in Tuscany.

To beat that we\’d need the son of a senior Conservative writing columns on how bad capitalism is, the son of the ex-head of the BBC telling us all Trotsky was right, the great-grandaughter of an Earl telling us all about how the rich should take care of the poor and, to pile absurdity upon absurdity, we\’d have to invent a fourth generation MP and third generation Cabinet Minister with an occasional column about the importance of soial mobility.

Naaah, none of those would ever get published, would they?

  2. I’m not posh enough to be the social conscience of the working class. Scholarship boy, me. Rusbridger was 1 North house, which was renowned for generating a bunch of patrician thickos (not as bad as East, mind: they really did turn out some dunces.)
