Will Hutton is one of Britain’s better-known political commentators (I’ve linked to him a few times on the Corner). A shining beacon of self-regard, self-righteousness and that sublime, almost surreal, stupidity that only the truly ‘intellectual’ can aspire to, he has made a career out of being wrong about almost everything, but today he has contributed to the merriment of the nation, and that’s something for which he should be thanked. So, thanks Will! I’ll leave it to the Daily Telegraph to tell you a little more about this paragon of progressive thought:
“Will Hutton, Britain’s foremost critic of capitalism and an outspoken advocate for affordable social housing, is married to a property developer who has made a fortune out of selling and renting inner-city properties, often at rates which local council housing officers describe as exorbitant.”
Well, unless Hutton, perish the thought, is an utter hypocrite, that must make for interesting chatter over his breakfast table.
