Anyone else see this? Chris Bryant,the shadow Culture Minister took a direct swipe at James Blunt by name dropping him while bitching about too many people from boarding school backgrounds being in music, films and TV, etc. Blunt rightly took offence and below is his reply

Unsurprisingly for a Labour minister, he glossed over the fact that he attended a fee paying school [the poorer end of posh whatever that means] but I started to think about this, does attending boarding school really give you that leg up that Bryant was trying to point score off?
