Elitism charge rebuffed by Elitist

Guardian Arts has an article today, defending Anthony Powell from charges of elitism, that he was only interested in writing about those who surrounded him at Eton and Oxford.

And the article rebuffing such claims of elitism is written by Andrew Motion, educated at public school (Radley College) and Oxford University.

The article is written by someone who has shared far too many of the same privileges to bring even the faintest notion of a critical view to the proceedings.

What next, an article penned by a sex offender, putting the case for Gary Glitter being "simply misunderstood"?

Or perhaps an article by a poisonous snake, "Are cobras really that venomous?" - A cobra offers their unique unbiased perspective...
