It looks like James Blunt got rather annoyed with a shadow minister for suggesting that there were too many people from privileged backgrounds in the arts world.
So, he did what any sensible person does and wrote a letter to the MP to put him right on some points.
10/10 for initiative (after all, politicians do need to be more aware of how the world works for non-politicians).
10/10 as well for making his points pretty clearly (whatever you may think of his points).
Minus several million points for some of his choice of language.
It’s creative, I’ll grant you. I think I’ve rarely seen the word ‘wazzock’ in a formal letter before.
But I struggle to imagine that anyone, let alone someone who probably considers themselves to be in a position of power, is going to take too kindly to being called a ‘classist gimp’. I doubt very much that Chris Bryant is going to feel inspired to change his mind when a letter, albeit impassioned, attacks him (and becomes very publicly available).
Which leaves me wondering what the letter has achieved.
