Lily Allen sounded off to her Twitter followers (@lilyroseallen) in wake of an angry exchange between Zac Goldsmith, the Conservative MP for Richmond Park, and Channel 4 broadcaster Jon Snow about claims the wealthy Tory broke the rules on election spending. Watch it at YouTube. Allen writes:
So Zac Goldsmith is rich. Get over it @channel4. So transparent. Ugh
@Mrs_Dav the point is, all candidates are guilty of the same, but they’ve only gone after goldy cause he’s famously wealthy.
@Linda_Marric I’m labour till I die. I can spot discrimination a mile off though. And I know what journalists are like.
People won’t stop till a head turns up on a plate. So British, and depressing. If you want to destroy someones life and career, why go after one of the richest men in the country, when he’s got so much to fall back on? Won’t feel like a real accomplishment.
