The Eye piece tells “THE political team at the Sun, that most class-conscious of newspapers, is shaping up to be the poshest in Fleet Street with the arrival of its new Westminster correspondent Harry Cole, 29 … There could be social tension ahead, for Cole, astonishingly, is in Who’s Who.

For what? For achieving the progression from state school to Oxbridge, which is something they did without access to any kind of privileged background - unlike Master Cole. The flannelled fool went to the exclusive Tonbridge School, where annual fees for boarders are higher than at Eton. Indeed, Tonbridge is an Eton Group school. Yet, for all that money having been thrown in his direction, Cole did not go up to Oxbridge.
The Sun’s bullying attempt to bend Labour leadership front runner Andy Burnham to its will is well known. The Fawkes rabble’s equivalent may be less so, but much of it (the posts HERE and HERE are typical) was authored by Master Cole. And from September, both he and Newton Dunn can combine their petulant jealousy into one glorious circle jerk. So the question has to be asked - why didn’t they go up to Oxbridge?
