RED Wall voters are rallying to the Tories after learning of Labour’s class war plan to strip charitable status from their beloved private schools.
After being warned of the diabolical, aspiration-punishing plan by their friend the Daily Mail on two consecutive front pages, voters in Hartlepool, Stoke-on-Trent and Bassetlaw have agreed they cannot vote against their own interests.
Stephen Malley, a warehouse picker from Mansfield, said: “I admit I’d considered backing Labour because of inflation, energy bills, the recession and Partygate. But now? No way.
“I’ve always dreamed that one day, if we continue our rise through society, my great-great-great-grandson would one day go to a minor public school. But without 20 per cent VAT relief how would that be possible?
“The rules say as charities they have to generate ‘a meaningful amount of public benefit’. Well that’s Eton to a tee. Without alumni like David Cameron, Boris Johnson and Kwasi Kwarteng where would this country be?
“The Mail’s right to launch this crusade on what really matters. It’s a smack in the teeth for people round here. It’s all Wetherspoons is talking about.”
