“Former shadow education minister Tristram Hunt has sparked a political row after telling some of the country’s most privileged students that “the top one per cent” must take leadership of the Labour party again”

“Hayley Waily ‏tweeted that Mr Hunt was “a living example of why we should be seeking our best talent from the 100%, not just the privately schooled 7%”. ”
