With Labour warning 1,250 private schools that £147m in tax breaks could be under threat unless they do more to help the state sector, the head of the independent schools’ lobby, Charlotte Vere has been all over the media, parroting the Tories’ personalised attack lines against the shadow education secretary:

Could this be the same Charlotte Vere who is currently trying to become a Tory MP, standing for selection in the safe seats of Havant (last month), South Cambridgeshire (in September), South East Cambridgeshire (last November) and Croydon South (also last November)?
The very same.
