This morning Guardian columnist Polly Toynbee is in full hypocrite mode warp factor 11. It is not that La Toynbee (Badminton School & Oxford) rails against public schools or privilege. Nor that the offspring of a well known and affluent family rails against inherited wealth. Nor on £300,000 a year paid for by a paper that uses offshore trusts to dodge tax, is she ranting against inequality or tax evasion. Polly has done even better that in her attempt to retain the title of hypocrite of the year for the 24th year running.
This time she urges the Government to take action against those who have the nerve to spend their taxed income on buying more than one residence. Bloody hell - how outrageous. The State MUST take action to tell folks how to spend their money. They might start with those who own THREE residences including a Tuscan retreat.. Step forward Polly Toynbee.
Of course in the world of Toynbee and her metropolitan elitist comrades at The Guardian some are just more equal than others.
