Also, Socialists Aren't Called Tamsin

In so far as some MP taking his lad to the hill over his consitutency and saying 'some day, son, all this will be yours' is pretty much the antithesis of socialism, Guido and pals make a good point here:
Tamsin Dunwoody is of course the privileged daughter of the Labour MP who held the seat until her death last month...

UPDATE : Guido's co-conspirators comment that Tamsin's grandfather, Morgan Phillips, was the General Secretary of the Labour Party, and her grandmother served as a minister in the House of Lords before being made the Lord Lieutenant of London. Tamsin is hardly working class.
