John Rentoul: Toff bashing

Iain Dale, Conor Ryan and Amol Rajan (see previous post), an unholy alliance, all greatly impressed by Gordon Brown's performance at Prime Minister's Questions. So was I. Relaxed, conversational and - blessed relief after such a long drought - with humour.

But there was one line that was too good to use. Brown invoked the name of Zac Goldsmith, the dormantly non-dom Conservative candidate, and said that David Cameron's inheritance tax cut seemed like something "dreamt up on the playing fields of Eton".

Having a go at Cameron's school, chosen for him by his parents: Not Going to Work.

It is a core vote strategy that may appeal to people that would vote Labour anyway; Middle England won't like it.
