Deputy Labour leader Angela Rayner has responded to Dominic Raab’s calling her a champagne socialist for being at Glyndebourne Opera last week

The two faced off across the House of Common’s despatch box for Prime Minister’s Questions in the absence of Boris Johnson and Raab told the MP that she had been spotted quaffing champagne on the lawns at Glyndebourne last week –

Champagne socialism is back in the Labour Party!’

Just before he did so, he shot Rayner a wink as if to say: ‘Nothing personal.’

In a post on social media later Rayner said

“Dominic Raab won’t approve but I did indeed go the opera last week (it cost me £62).
Tom Eisner, a working-class lad from Buxton near where I grew up kindly invited me. He’s been playing violin at Glyndebourne for 36 years.
Never let anyone tell you you’re not good enough. “
