A split in the sisterhood?
Posted Monday, 20 June 2011 at 16:14

An interesting moment occurred today during questions to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and as a result I have a new found admiration for Caroline Flint, the Shadow Secretary of State.

As Eric Pickles answered a question he commented to Caroline, who has huge difficulty hiding her disappointment at being in opposition, that it was no wonder the left wing Guardian columnist Polly Toynbee was disappointed in her.  "I’ll wear that as a badge of honour" retorted Caroline, throwing a raw steak up to the press gallery.

Well I never. So it’s not only us on the right who find Ms Toynbee’s unique brand of the politics of envy distasteful then?
