Labour’s education spokesman was last night accused of denigrating hard-working teachers at independent schools by claiming they had an ‘easy gig’.
Privately educated Tristram Hunt also suggested he would sack untrained teachers if he became Education Secretary, and said he would not undo Michael Gove’s school reforms as many were built on Labour policies.
Despite the stupidity of his announced policies I’m afraid that Hunt just brings me out in fits of giggles. It’s well, it’s sorta everything really.
The name, the looks, the voice, the background: anyone less likely to be a Labour MP is difficult to think of. My assumption is that he has mistaken the innate conservatism of the Labour party for being Conservative and is so dim that he actually through he was joining the Tory Party.
