chortling while Britain burns: Richard Benyon, the UK's second wealthiest MP (£110 million), jokes about deprivation in his constituency meaning Waitrose has run out of balsamic vinegar.

After Grenfell.

This from a man who's family firm was: 'part of a property consortium that purchased New Era estate, one of the last affordable housing estates for working-class Londoners. The consortium increased the rents and announced plans to increase them further to match the rest of the market, effectively displacing its current residents.'

Jokes are traditionally a feature of this speech, but the man, the context, and the joke combine to present a window into a very detached, entitled and shockingly smug political mindset.
