Story from today's Mirror. I know we need all the help we can muster in Crewe, but must we continue with the 'Tory Toff Timpson' angle? It's all a bit pathetic really.
Tory activists for by-election hopeful Edward Timpson have undermined his claims he is more than just a rich toff - by canvassing in a £50,000 Bentley.
Four campaigners for wealthy Crewe and Nantwich candidate Timpson were spotted on a council estate climbing out of the luxury motor carrying pamphlets and blue Conservative balloons.
One onlooker said: "So much for modesty and saving the environment with such a gas guzzler. The Tories must think we are really green to believe them."
Timpson, 34, a barrister whose family have earned millions from a shoe repair chain, has been accused by his Labour rival Tamsin Dunwoody of being "some rich kid who probably hasn't even visited Crewe station".
