Raymond Monbiot

Just a small thing. Reading Ferdie Mount today I come across this:

Indeed, Raymond Monbiot, the chairman of the convention, apparently told Tory MPs they did not even have the right to challenge the code because it was for his board to draw up the rules. Mr Monbiot, among other things, is a big noise in the meat and poultry world and he appears to regard his party's MPs as a rather recalcitrant bunch of battery hens.

Is this, really, Georges’ father? Is the whole thing, the career, the Moonbatness, simply an extremely extended teenage rebellion and snit?

I don't think young George got to play with the gypsies in the wood as a child. Been making up for it ever since.

A Google will reveal his folks as old-fashioned shire Tories. I don't imagine he went to a state school.

Explains his dislike of Daily Mail middle England.

Tim adds: I know Georgie went to Stowe.
