Tamsin “Toff” Dunwoody defends election campaign

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Tamsin Dunwoody, the granddaughter of Baroness Norah Phillips and daughter of Doctor John Dunwoody, has defended her election campaign which is based almost entirely on telling the people of Crewe & Nantwich that they should vote for her because the Conswervative candidate is a rich and successful lawyer.
She said:

I don’t have a £53m pound fortune supporting me. I don’t have a £1.5m mansion. I am just a single, unemployed mother of five fighting hard for a job.

Fighting for a job you see, not for a chance to perform a public a service but for a job that pays £61k.

Stephen Ladyman, who has been running the disastrous campaign for Liebour said:

Maybe it’s a little crude but it’s trying to get across a legitimate political message that the Conservative candidate hasn’t done anything in the area. He’s a rich man and he won’t understand the problems that people face day-to-day.

Of course, he’d know what problems people face day-to-day on his salary of almost £139k. Just like the previous MP, Tamsin Dunwoody’s mother, knew all about the problems people face day-to-day. She had to struggle on a meagre £61k a year salary – slightly higher than the £26k national average which most of her constituents could only dream of.

So basically, if you’re writing off the other parties, what you’re looking at is a choice between a rich lawyer who doesn’t need the money and who presumably wants the job for what it is – a public service – and an unemployed single mum who wants the job for the salary having been unemployed since losing her seat in the Welsh Assembly to a Tory and who’s so posh she’s got her own entry in Burkes Peerage.

What is it they say about people in glass houses? Who’s the real toff? The rich lawyer or the granddaughter of Baroness Phillips with her own entry in Burkes Peerage?

    Why is an unemployed single mother of five children applying for a job that will take her hundreds of miles away from her kids who will barely get to see her from one day to the next?
