Class and income

There is a lot of talk about Labour making the election about class – probably to counter the Tories' Eton image. I think they are wrong in many ways. Firstly, they equate class and income, which is nonsense. You can be friends with royalty and not be rich and vice versa. In fact a lot of entrepreneurs didn't go to private school or university – and they and their children live better than many. Secondly, Labour's record on income inequality is so poor that they shouldn't even mention this. If they couldn't fix it in 13 years, how are they going to do it in the next 4 years when less growth is there to be distributed?
