Diane Abbott on race and classes.
Politics is a rough old game. So you are quite entitled to use my decision to send my son James to City of London School as the excuse for a withering attack on New Labour (December SR). As it happens, most of what you say about New Labour I agree with. And my voting record in parliament reflects this. It is also inevitable that a political polemic about New Labour quickly turns into a personal attack on me. On this, you and the Tory media are singing from the same song sheet.
