Right Wing Pundit David Starkey Annoys Left Wing Harriet Harman By Pointing Out Her Posh Background…

Brilliant put down by historian David Starkey of the liberal left panelists on BBC Question Time. As he points out he and Conservative minister Justine Greening are the only ones who come from humble backgrounds and made progress by merit. They also happen to be the only two who are right wing in their views. The others (including the chairman David Dimbleby) had parents who were wealthy and already very well connected in the worlds of politics and/or the media.

His barbs about feminism largely working for the benefit of comfortably off ¬†middle class women scored a direct hit on Harriet Harman – her pompous and self righteous indignation only served to prove his point. Moreover the bonus came from watching a clearly rattled Dimbleby struggling to move the agenda forward. He didn’t appreciate the audience being reminded of how much taxpayers money cascades into his pockets via the publicly funded BBC to add to his already substantial inherited family fortune.

He might be an old queen and I don’t agree with all his views but Starkey is never afraid to upset his fellow panelists – or the audience – with some hard home truths…..

Video…Champagne Socialist Scribbler Hoist With Her Own Petard….

Guardianista left winger Laurie Penny accused historian David Starkey of being “racist” and a tax fiddler etc etc (she mingled with the OWS crowd in the USA recently)

She should not have messed with Starkey, who is gay and who came from a humble background. He is also right wing in his views and always robust in stating them even in front of the bleeding heart liberals at the BBC.

Note for US friends – in the UK a “Public School” is in fact an independent private school that charges annual fees of several thousand pounds per year and is therefore almost always attended by the children of the rich. 95% of children in the UK attend “State” schools funded out of taxation and therefore charging no fees..
